You call THAT a paddle

You call THAT a paddle??

Here is a set of paddles for you. These are on my 2002 Foreman. They dig HARD!!!



Look CLOSE - they are kind of hard to see because of the shadows.

Actually I traded them for a Ramsey 3000 lb winch a few months ago.

To be honest...I don't think that ANY paddles are worth the effort and extra strain on the axle.

If you're highcentered...and need a paddle...do you REALLY WANT all that torque going to a plate of flat steel digging into the mud/dirt/roots/etc...

NOT ME. I snapped my axle (left side) and decided that I was better off running larger tires and NO paddles. I have more power to my rear wheels now, and I actually think it pulls BETTER in the mud without those monstrosities on the rear.

ksims1868 I seen the pics of your paddles, those things were huge. Mine is about half the size of what yours were. And yes they do put strain on the rearend, but thats where the throttle comes into play. I dont run mine all the time, so that give me a chance to inspect my bearings/axle.

yes u have to make them yourself.
Yep - Custom fabrication. It takes some skills to make these. I don't know about yours Dirty...but mine were made to be removable. They bolt on with the wheels.

When I remove the rear wheels...these paddles come off as a seperate piece that sit between the wheel and the hub. They were made with a 4/100 bolt pattern to fit Hondas and Yamahas.

Pretty ingenious because there is no evidence that a paddle was ever installed after it is removed.
