Thanks for the advice

Thanks for the advice guys. I ordered the U clamp for the bikes and a suction job for the cars. If the suction cup falls off, I'll just U clamp it to the steering wheel.:rofl

TDM850 Tires

I just put a set of Bridgestone BT021 radials on my 93 TDM and I'm quite happy with them. Steers neutral now instead of being hard to turn in with the ME330 on the front.

Me again.

Stiffer spring = smoother ride? Doesn't make sense.

Has anyone tried to find softer fork springs for the DL650? I switched from 10 to 5 wt fluid and it helped a little, but it's still stiff. Sliders are adjusted correctly at the axle and aren't...

Suzuki puts the tight coils of the dual rate springs on the bottom. The coils are only about 2mm apart in this area. The other coils are about 5mm apart. I'll bet the noise is the sound of "coil...
