Rear tire?

Are you still running the 180 size tire on the rear?

Is it a 55 profile?
Do you think it makes any difference to handling or longevity?

Unless I missed a thread, I don't think I read about you removing the airbox funnels. Do you have any pics? Why'd you do it?

Still had life and could went another 1500-2000 with it but leaving on a Black Hills trip late next week and wanted new rubber.

Yes, still running a TKC80 180-55-17 on the rear until a Hendenau tire hits the market in a 170 rear size. The 55 vs a 60 oem I doubt makes any difference.....someone will I am sure say it does. To me it doesn't. I like the 180 55 17 tires and have been running them a long time on my Buell Ulysses so I am very familiar with them.

They handle fine.

I read the 180 is a belted bias and the smaller TKC80's are just a bias ply. I think the belts stiffens up the tire some because of the width.

I removed the funnels when I had it torn down and installed a K&N. So far so good. No power increases but I think the motor spins up faster. Instead of two funnels providing air I now have two large openings sucking in air. The fronts vents now actual Vent and flow air across the motor area. maybe 1k miles or so since I did it.

best I can do on a photos........the funnels are just plastic and pop right out.

Thanks.

When you say funnels you mean the small ram air intakes in the front of the fairing?

Also. what screen is that? I know you posted it but I couldn't find the post.
Those mirror mounts are the CPRFab Rottweiler mounts designed for use with either the CRG round or arrow shaped mirrors. The mounts are designed specifically for mounting them onto the plastic handguards and work very well with minimum vibration depending on throttle input and revs (some vibration at certain rev ranges at heavy throttle input) but cruising along at any highway speeds, they are very steady and vibration-free. The stock handguards are fairly meaty in that spot, they provide a very good mounting basis for these mounts.

As for the screen, it's the 1190R screen and while it does blow a bit more air at my head compared to the standard 1190 screen, the air is clean and turbulence free )and I like how it looks short and tinted).

Thanks. Mirrors were a problem with the 9X0 Adventure too. Subbing SM/SMR mirrors helped.

New TKC-70

These are due in Oct. Supposedly 60 road 40 offroad.

May be a good alternative to the never appearing Heidenau.

http://www.conti-online.com/www/moto...tkc_70_en.html

Price point will be curious.

Update

1. Up to a total of 40k km's on 1190's now - no breakdowns, no unscheduled trips the workshop.

2. Unifilter in at new - no dust in airbox at all. Might try the K+N filter.

3. Pirelli MT90 A/T's last for about 7k kms, front still going at 8k kms.
The Pirelli's are pretty good; you still ride hard in the twisties, but they grip all different stuff pretty well.

4. The 10W-60 engine-oil is pretty important, use nothing else in hotter places.

5. Chain and sprockets are still doing well at 25k km's on the 1190R

6. The 1190R is absolutely brilliant. Makes all other bike look boring.

Simple and cheap (works like a charm as long as you use the rubber ring included with it):

Larger rear sprocket

My buddy added 3 teeth to the rear sprocket of this 1190 R. He says is makes a huge difference off road, especially first gear low speeds. Has anyone else changed the front or rear sprocket sizes?

We are headed to the COBDR in 1 1/2 weeks

I changed the front to a 16T and really like it. The guy I got it from did not
