Any suggestions??? I greatly appreciate the help!
I put a mefo rear and tkc front on my 990 in October. It's been about 7-8000 miles on the pair since that has included a big offroad trip when new (they were great) and a few offroad afternoons since worn (they do just fine) as well as superslabbing it across the country and on daily commuting. The front is now cupped pretty well, the rear has a minor flat strip in the middle, and the pair has gotten slightly wiggly if riding hard on pavement but I have no real complaints. I hated the on-road handling change from the stock scorpions when I first put them on but now I have no complaints, great combo.
