Rim Locks

I think the requirement for rim locks depends a lot on the terrain you ride/tyres you use.

I like to ride Vic High Country tracks when I can. For the most part they are steep, loose, and rocky....

Vent filters are Ryco Z675S from memory. They are 3/16" barbs and available from Repco, Bursons or similar.
The fuel ones are much harder to get in 5/16". That one came from the bike...

Rim Locks

I'm using the Torpedo 7 lighweight Talon clones. They had a 1.85 for the front when I got mine some time back.

Be careful if you get your tyres fitted by a shop. One of my riding mates had rim...

Are you comparing the 17/19 set with a 17/21 set also with 705's ?

Valve stems

I too put the nut up against the cap as has already been mentioned.

I also drill out the valve hole in the rim to provide a bit more wiggle room.

PAJ sizing

The above table for PJ to PAJ sizing is a good reference but a functioning ACV muddies the water a bit.

The PAJ sizing is probably more important than the PJ size as it controls the shape of the...

We are fortunate, from a tuning perspective, to not have much of an elevation issue to deal with here in Australia.

I don't think I'd want a DR without one !

I've pretty much got mine dialed in now - lots of fine tuning, but well worth the effort. Average of 23 klms/ltr on the first two tanks.
