paddle tire

has anybody had to put a longer chain on their bike to fit a paddle tire? i jsut have a 8 paddle turbo paddle

Yup I just mounted up a paddle for the first time and I've got very little clearance between my swingarm/linkage and tire. Buying a new chain tomorrow...

I had the same problem.

Instead of buying a new chain for a tire that I'm going to use a couple times a year at most...I shaved some of the rubber off the paddles to clear. It still pulled like a raped ape at the dunes.

If you already have a 520 o-ring chain just add an additional master link for 5$ and your done. It will lengthen you wheel base and keep your front wheel down.
