I ordered a pair of hubs, disk brakes, and built up a set of 19/17" wheels.
Riding two up, get a custom seat and some type of back rest for the passenger, like a trunk. Goes a long way for comfort. Also, the 19/17 wheels work great on the street.
Yes I will be getting a trunk not only for pileon but I commute daily so I also need a place for my Lunch .
Is there a stainless steel oil filter available for the 990 ? I have one in my KLR and it seemed to work out well - I was thinking about a second set of wheels for street / dirt set up ! I may have to get a price on those .
