I have 4500miles on mine and they are looking bald. I think I am going to try the Heidenau K60 rear since I am going to do some heavier dirt riding around Platoro Colorado come August.

Valve check and oil up here is $425 + tax with Tom at Moores and Son. And I thought that was steep. I guess I shouldn't complain. Or learn how to check the valve's myself.
