Are these tires Mitas E07 by any chance? If yes, do you like them?

Thanks.

I thought our drag race last spring was pretty telling- you were faster, but the difference wasn't $1500+ worth in my opinion.

I did think your mods made the throttle response better and made the bike more aggressive on the bottom end, but again, not good enough to drop the cash.

I think a fuel programmer alone would probably be the best bang for the buck mod.

Thanks.
Blue bike has Mefo Exploreres
Black bike has Dunlop D606s, now switched to MT21s, which I like much better...

Head Bearing or Fork Oil?

Has anyone done a fork oil change,I've got go-race suspension that's in need of a change. I'm also interested in checking the head bearing-want to make sure it's properly lubed. Kind of chicken to delve into it-never done either before,but would like to do it myself if I can get a little help from the inmates

The seat is a Seat Concepts cover. Better than stock but still not a long distance touring seat. Good for the price, I think it was $160.

Both procedures are simple and straight forward even a caveman could do it.
Go for it.

Youtube is your friend. Both very easy tasks, just take it slow, note where everything is and where cables etc run and I find many beers help my work in the shed too.

Was it this thread where it was thought that the new James Bond movbie used a WRR???

It was a Honda, it seems. And you can own it.

I like Mr. Watson's work advice: more beer equals better wrenching results! Every time I take on a new task, I slow way down, follow the guides, and ponder dilemmas with a cold one
