That is CA-36 heading west out of Red Bluff, California. You end up on the coast near Fortuna, CA.

Question Wheel compatability for 96 RT

My friend has a 1996 RT with a taco'd front rim. He found a set of rims from a 2001 RT and he would like to know if they will work on his 1996. Thanks for any info........

I've got to take the bike in for its 6000 mile service before Im too overdue, and am planning to have them swap out the tires at the same time.

I've got it narrowed down to Michelin P3 or Metzler Z8's.

I'm more concerned with how a tire performs than mileage ( as I seem to get approx 6000 miles out of tires no matter what I put on ).

So what say you quasi - esteemed ADV RT riders. Have you used these and what did you think? Would you put them on again?

Thanks

Bob.. I have about 5800 miles on my PR3's now, and they still have a lot of tread left. Front is showing a bit of scalloping at the hard/soft transition point, but not bad. Probably get about 8000 miles on these, and I do not ride particularly mild. They are also great rain tires, very sticky. There are no chicken strips.

I have a set of PR3s waiting next to the bike. Now I'm going to get a NoMar tire changer.

I rode that road from west to east. I was in "the zone" that day and there was very little traffic. My RT and I were as one and owned the road. I still look back on that as one of my best ever riding days.

Yes 2001 rims will fit, as will any year 1100, not 1150.

The PR3's are excellent. Highly recommend.

Looking at a 2000 R1100RT

Known issues?

Can I still find an aftermarket extra tall windscreen?

What about lowering the foot pegs?

(35" inseam)

Thanks!

Lower Footpegs

If you want to lower your footpegs you should look at the folks at Suburban Machinery. Nice people and good to do business with.
