The inner workings of mine from today's clutch replacement. Toasted it back in May in nasty Mississippi Mud on the TAT. Finally got off my ass and fixed it today.

Yeah. I had mine out for a bit, those studs make all the difference. I was sliding all over the place. I have tires on order, getting them studded as soon as they come in.

It's a friend's bike, my stuff is on order right now.

He drilled the holes with a drill press and went to the tire shop, they are just regular automotive studs. They charged him $12 per tire to put them in. The Aerostich studs would have been over $100.

He said they work great. Yesterday on his way to work he said he passed 5 or 6 stuck cars. He also drove his wife's jeep to the gas station in the morning, a 4x4 wrangler, and said the jeep was sliding around more than the bike does.

I think I have a few more pictures on my phone, I'll look.

Here's drilling holes for the studs. I don't have any more pics. I'll send him this link, I believe he's a member here.

He said it was time consuming but not that bad. One tip he gave me was to talk to the tire shop and see what size studs they have before you drill. He drilled the holes for a size they didn't have.

Better than paying the $100 for the aerostich stuff, and less work since the shop is studding instead of you. I'm planning on telling the tire shop it's for a dirt bike, I don't know how they'll feel about studding a 'motorcycle' tire.
