what the hell is goin on here??

so 2 start off i just wana say that i think that the 700 is the best quad that i have owned!! But i bought her like 3 weeks ago and on my first ride i got a slice in the rear right sidewall bout 1 1/2 inches wide. So i bought another stock dunlop tire and that was fine. So a couple days later i went out again and what do u know i get a small puncture/slash in my rear left sidewall!! So i say the hell with the cheap dunlops and go with razr2 in the front and razr in the back, i have always used razrs on my other quads and loved them and never had any probs with them. Well went out riding again 2day and the razrs only had bout 1 1/2 hrs on them and the right rear is flat and i had 2 ride like 2 gear all the way home. now i dont consider myself 2 be a hardcore rider but i do like 2 go fast through the trails, i dont know if i need 2 adjust the shocks or what is goin on?? I weigh bout 240 and am 6ft 3 and i am ridin bout 5psi in the tires all round, i dont know what is goin on but i do know that i cant keep putin a 100 every time i ride into tires!!! PLZ HELP

Make sure you're not losing air at the bead. Sometimes they are not sealed well and will leak. Also I would suggest installing tubes in the rear tires as back up puncture protection. I have over 500 miles on mine in some of the nastiest rocky conditions and have yet to puncture a tire. I have slices all over them, but nothing all the way through.

I just got them at a local Cycle Gear so I don't have a part number or anything. They didn't have an 11" so I used a 12" tube.

And does anybody have a clue what is going on with these tires?? Maybe i should try lowering the psi from 5 to 4 and maybe go on a diet!!!

sounds weird to me... been riding with them in some pretty rutted and rocky areas and not a single slash, flat, or puncture...
