I get to change tires on the bikes for the first time tomorrow or the next day. I'm doing both the rears, so I'll let you know how it turns out. The clutches upshift fine but are really grabby on downshifts, especially when they get hot. They are better when we ride them only partially loaded, but still grabby. I've tried adjusting them looser and tighter and changed oil weight but none of it seems to make much difference. Thanks for the good wishes, I've enjoyed reading about your trip, as well.
