Yeap - done that - two needed adjustment on my bike as well - 195 and 200 (sizes). Here in Yamaha - one valve shim is 5 Euros.
Also got new throtle cables and lever for the clutch. :)

Just came back from a short ride, changing directions fast on backroads goes a lot harder. But it is much easier to climb hills and ride down the side of hills with these tires. I'm much less afraid of the front sliding away.
The mud is from my backyard it rained for the last few day's and ah the grass was not pretty to begin with.
Those look like a hella good time slipping on the street. I had a TKC on back before and could spin it up pretty easy. That front looks like it will be work on the street but I'm interested how it does offroad.

Panniers

Hi AJ, I got the Junior panniers. Just liked the different options the same mounts gave, plus they looked pretty strong. I'm off on a trip around Australia in 7 weeks when I get back from work. So have slowly been setting the bike up. I'm very interested in this tire thread. Great info. Thanks guys.

Yes, yes...no need to shout. now you woke up the german pig. ;)
Personally I'm really too busy riding or working, so the 100.000km went by nearly unnoticed by the forum crowd...^^
But then again, "ride more - write less"

On the more serious side: I can't be a lot of help, because in germany riding is strictly tarmac and I don't own panniers.

Ride safe and have fun.

Glückauf
Ralf

I'm fairly computer challenged and haven't posted a pic before is my first excuse and I'm working away at the moment, 5 weeks to go with no pics on this comp. I've only got a very standard bike at the moment but that will change with time and after looking here. Hopefully I'll be able to contribute a bit more after my trip.

I sure would like to get a set of those side cases on my MK1 -- any tips for accomplishing that?

Racetech gold valves

Anyone here with first hand experience of the Racetech gold valves on the MK1 TDM's? I did the Racetech .95 fork springs and am happy with that mod, but still considering the gold valves.

My biggest fear is that the installation of the fork gold valve upgrade will make the rear shock's shortcomings more evident (like crap) and I can't justify $900 for an Ohlins.
