Going to Death Valley this month to break in the new tire. Bring on the CAM 1K, my first too.

Smart move to make. Stock enduros are designed for 175 rides and their gear.

I have a much heavier spring on the rear of my Honda XR.....and the front springs are the largest I could find, to support the 6.4 gallon Acerbis Desert Tank.

$250 of new springs are a great investment when converting your enduro or dual-sport to a burro packing, light adventure bike!!!
