I do like that color scheme on the big Katoom. Glad they brought it back. Hey, if my bunch can get 2400-2600 out of TKC80's , on the pigs we ride, I'm betting even with extra juice you can get the same. Now the Kenda Big Blocks? As some wag said about mine ......."black cheese". lol

Wow, I've never seen the back wall of your garage before...

That is a drastic improvement! Feels good, doesn't it?

EBW, slowoldguy, Trophy:

Yeah, I might be a bit optimistic. I swear someone has 3g's on their TKC's; I think it may be peaches; of course, if it's him, he's been well past usable tire for a while! Or at least tire that has any tread.

Good looking tires Flid. depending on the load, 2500 should be doable. Oil change on every third set...? What are the oil change intervals on the 990? Are they around 5-6k?
Way to go BWs. Looks like you have a few pieces of water sports equipment left over.

Once every 4500 miles. Valve adjust at a little less than 10,000 miles.

That's not as bad as I thought.

BW, glad you sold the boat. Looks like you have room for a few more bikes now.

first ride out on the Old XL with eh XR forks.. felt good except for a wobble on gravel. I'm not talking head shake i mean a wobble. no I thought maybe it's the tire i used so i hit the highway.. nothing, it was as smooth as could be. so no way it's the tire or rim. going to jack it back up and look at that again anyway. I think it's just sitting higher in the front then it did and that is causeing it. I'll lower it some if I see no warp in the tire and rim. and OH MY GOD what a front brake. oh and it has no wobble on pavement wile on the brake ether I think it's just sitting to high.

I think I got about that out of my rear. Supah should get at least 3K, prolly over 4K from his rear. (Unless he gives too many demo rides.) I think I put over 8K on my front.
