Look for the "date stamp" on the tires. It will typically be a 4 digit code in week/year format. example 4811 = 48th week of 2011.

storage

Instead of storing it how about an ADV rider keeping it for a year and riding it?
I wouldn't mind riding an FJR for a year. I have garage space for another bike.

Rear Shock

I'm in need of a rear shock for my '03 XR400.

Anyone have one laying around? I hate ebay. Figured I'd check here before heading down the bid, bid, bid and bid again on ebay.

PR4 or PR4GT

PR4 GT or just PR4. I know the GT is for heavier bikes but not sure if we'd classify the RT as a heavier sport touring bike.
I have an 09 RT that will be needing new meats soon.
Thanks.
