I got my 19" excel front for my last DR from them. Great people, and turned the bike into an extra hell of a good time

Tried putting on my supermoto wheels last night, is there a trick of getting the darn front caliper inside the wheel!?? I'm using the EBC 320mm rotor kit with adapter which is mounted on the fork, but it's almost like I can't fit the caliper between the rim and rotor when I try to put the wheel on.

IIRC I ended up filing a small bevel onto the offending part of the caliper.

Why... sprinkle yourself with a dose of common sense and spread the callapers...

Even with the (new) pads spread it is tight.
A small bevel makes it easy.

Yes, the spacer is still inside the hub between the wheel bearings. Ran the bike on my stand last night with bike in second gear. Rim looks true. Bearings and Cush hub are all tight. Tire is mounted true on the bead...........tire itself looks like it is lopsided!!!

What the he'll?

Tires mounted and balanced by Cycle Gear out West here.

Not sure if they use an actual high speed balancer or not........but that makes sense to me although the tire looks perfect around the bead. No visual clues.

Ya that's weird. I think trying a different tire might be the only option. Problem is you now have spacers that are messed up. Gonna have to replace them if they are too bad. Procycle in Eugene Oregon can get all that crap. The spacers aren't cheap though. $23 bucks for number 19.

why not sprinkle yourself with a dose of reading comprehension and take another look at the OP's post?




OP, unbolt the rotor from the wheel and fit it up. that's what i had to do to mount the KX wheel.

TCI Products Skid plate

Has anyone used TCI Products skid plate? I like the side engine guards.

https://tciproductsusa.com/index.php...roducts_id=569

Has it held up good? Is it easy to R&R? Worth the money?

That is frickin expensive. Is it gold plated. I have the procycle one and it covers almost as much as that TCI one. At only $80.

how much are all the engine covers that have to be added to that $80 for the same protection?

that TCI might have saved my shift lever this weekend...
