Have any of you guys done any water skimming?? If so what setup did you use. im thinking the xx is heavy but i might try it on some smaller ponds. just wondering.
They guy with the KTM 525XC - his name is Nat, he also has a KFX700 that he skims with Vampires. He's really good at it like Danny.so haulers are a must then. cool scuzz. i watch them do it almost every weekend. last time i was out danny wanted me to try it but i am a little leary about the weight of the XX.
That was what I thought would happen as well. Straight paddles seem to be where it's at for this. IMO you could do it was ours on angle paddles, but I think it would be a lot harder.my bike got all the way on top of the water on 2 wheels and drifted sideways almost killing me LOL...i was on slanted paddles so i think its very possible on the xx.
how often do you hit up wiggins. it seems like i go there every weekend i am home now.i also learned that you slip the clutch so it doesnt bog in such a high gear, i think it will skim, i have accelerated fast enough on 2-4" of water and got my bike on the water, one time at wiggins i was riding wheelies in a little creek part and my bike got all the way on top of the water on 2 wheels and drifted sideways almost killing me LOL...i was on slanted paddles so i think its very possible on the xx.
