You don't what that. I was once accused of being as boring as whale shit on a student course evaluation.

Where would Dunlop 908, Desert HT fit in there?

Desrt HT ....cheaper....lasts a long time #1 for rear....the real question is the front tire

Yep, Motoz has a stiff carcass, but it softens with riding a bit, so flat repairs are easier than installation.

Tip for not pinching tube: once uninflated tube is inserted in tire, pump just a bit of air into tube....this gives it "shape" and the tube isn't in there in its "flaccid" state ....and less likely to get pinched when spooning the tire into position.

Works for me.

Question

While swapping out the stock air filter with the RR foam filter, I over tighten the screw (cant seems to get the gap between the foam plate and lower plate to close) and pulled out the nut.

Please advice

am thinking of using araldite to stick the bolt back into place and maybe apply silicon grease between the 2 plate to cover up any gaps.

Drill hole (size of bolt) all the way through and use longer bolt from inside out with insert to make a stud. Then use a nut on the stud to fasten filter frame to the air box.

Sometimes you can use a suitable epoxy or superglue to hold the insert in the airbox, but they are easy to pull out again.

I used foam weather stripping on bottom side of RR frame to seal. This allows easy switching back to original paper filter if needed.

I did same thing first time I put my filter in, I got a 2 tube special epoxy and also slightly tapped out brass bushes so bolts where able to be put in finger tight. It has held wel. Next time they come out I had planned on doing the bolt through from underneath mod as mentioned.

Shit design

Tyres

I've settled on T63 front and Mich Desert Race rear. I swopped a Tractionator out after less than 1500 miles. It wasn't worn out, but it wasn't tractionatoring. I think people see some knobs left as something...

Pricey though. But if it will out last the MT21 I wouldn't mind. Think it will, Bill?

I'm testing combinations for a 4 day (1900 miles) rally later this year. I dont want to change tyres in the middle (although I'm taking spares). The MT21 combo is next. But I really like the Desert Race rear so far...

Hadn't thought of that before but it sounds like a good idea!
