I've got it on "my" authority that it does. Didn't hear it from somebody else.......heard it myself while the throttle was WFO for 4 seconds.

My buddy Andy would have his 606 looking like this. I thought it was because he was hard on the front brake. My preferred flavor of tires is a MT21 front (it doesn't wear any where near this bad) and a 606 rear.

I had some MEFO explorers on the front and rear for over 5000 miles and I really liked them on pavement and offroad with the glaring exception of mud. For the miles you get out of them I could deal with not hitting mud because when I had them it really wasn't an option unless I wanted to practice picking the bike up. Just make sure you heat up that tire before you put it on, doing so will save you a lot of four letter word usage.

When my rear was done the front was cupped really badly, I tried turning it around but it had a bad wobble to it. I was going to give it to somebody but it just wasn't safe for use.

If you ride dry pack and pavement I'd recommend them, just be careful in the mud.

FWIW, one time I had a blow out in the rear after catching a nail or something and had to limp 5 miles on a flat. It came off the bead, but stayed on the rim. I don't recommend doing this but it's good to know it can handle it in a bad situation.

Stupid questions. There will be more

The air valves on the top of the forks to let air pressure out? We don't want pressure in there? Or do we?

Dunlop D606. He had pretty low air pressure in them. Like less than 20-ish. That normal? Those tires mostly dirt tires?

The fuel valve is manual shut off? I don't see a vacuum line from the carb to it. Might be a different one than stock? Tank is a plastic Clarke tank.

Did this old of bike (1994) have the smog air pump OEM? Is there anything to check from the removal that should be sealed off.

Rear shock has XR Only sticker on it. Is this something changed out or rebuilt?

Super Trapp muffler any good? Sound pretty good.

I think I probably should get a Honda manual. He gave me a Clymers for like three different bikes.

You can put up to 6 PSI in the forks. Petcock is manual.

I was pretty sure about the petcock but had to ask if a vacuum line was missing. I couldn't find any place it would plug in either end.

What is the advantage/ disadvantage of pressure 0-6 PSI in the forks?

You are stiffening the fork springs with air. What vacuum line? Pix?

If "your" authority thinks there is a rev limiter, please tell me at what rpm it cuts in? I can say without a doubt that it does not function between 0 and 9400 rpm.s! There is NO limiter in the stock CDI.

I'm thinking I'll try the D606 rear MT21 front next. My front just started to wear like this on my trip to Utah.
