Thanks Maurie. They do look a little over wide and sometimes give the visual illusion of the tire going flat. Guess I am going back to specs.

Hand guards

I am considering installing a set of hand guards on a 02 1150R. Can the guards for the 1150 GS fit perfect or do I need to do some tweaking or fabricate something? Thank you!

FPK or Canella

I'd recommend Yamaha dealer Canella in zona 9 in Guatemala City or widely known FPK (efe pe ka) and likely lower cost and just a few blocks apart.

I ordered the Russell ss line listed for 91-98 for my 99. Looks good thus far :D and will have time to install it along with new pads until next week. Think they should work fine. We'll see.
