It's just the Pirelli Scorpion MT90. Works great on the road and easy dirt, but I'm also finding it damn near useless on deeper sandy stuff. Also seems to wear out a little too quickly for my taste.

Just be cautious. Because once the stepper is out of whack, you can't go back until a reset.
So after reading this thread- http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=567423&page=2 I went ahead and took some slack out of the one cable making sure as to not get too carried away. Turned out fine. I can see though if one adjusted the wrong cable it could lead to problems.

Thanks Jason for the searching this out

That was a lot of work to lift a bike, Just man up and go to the gym. Then worry about the hernia later.

And what happens when you ride in the desert and theres no trees? Does it come with a special stake to connect to...

Nicely done dude. I was lazy and just bought the black calipers off a dakar edition and slapped em on my 950. And then I powdercoated all things silver...litterally.

Question Fat Bike?

Ok, now that I've got her all loaded down...what am I supposed to do about the amount of sag with me on it? Can I preload the rear shock to 10 clicks(R model, full payload) from the 4 it was set at? Or am I doing/thinking something wrong here?

After you load all your shit and weigh the bike down, what do you do to the suspension to account for all the extra weight of you and all your gear? Thanks, Walt

I've been through two of 'em, both showed cords by 2500 miles.

I don't think I ride like you do....
