I put them on myself, and recommend everyone else do the same. Motion Pro spoons and Youtube videos made it go pretty smooth.





As you can see I got almost 400 miles out of the stockers.

That's way way way too much air pressure for the MT 21!! That's a lightweight bike, 18-22 is plenty! Make sure you put the front tire back on proper, axle bolt 1st, the bounce the suspension, then the pinch bolts. If done on the wrong order, this could cause the shake at speed!


Life is good!
