Dyno!? Tires!?

Ok this bike is really startimg to irritate me.

I must have called 20 shops in ohio and western pa trying to find a dyno that had slicks that fit our bike. As you can tell I am failing miserably.

What are my options?

Are there any type of hubs or adapters?

Anyone got a set of slicks they want to mail me temporarily lol or sell to me?

Its almost to the point where i want to get this done out of sheer spite of the difficulty it has been...

Thanks

Where are you located? Have you tried Horsepower Inc. in Erie, Pa? My cousin works there and I thought he told me they did a lot of ATVs, so they should have slicks. I have wheel hub adapters for 144 to 110 bolt patterns, but I doubt that most shops will.

Why are you dynoing your quad? If is just to tune it, no need for slicks, juts run knobbies, shouldn't effect the ability to tune it. If you are going for the highest HP number you can get, then you will want to find some slicks, knobbies may loose about 4 hp or so.

Here is their website, http://www.horsepowerinc.net/Index.html . I bought my adapters online somewhere, I can't remember where, but here is another site that has them cheaper than what I got mine. http://www.mudthrowers.com/inc/sdetail/647/12185 , but still, 100 bucks isn't much of a bargain.

AS far as I know, and noticed myself, they didn't hinder any performance themselves. I bought mine so I could run my Rincons extra tire sin the winter.
