It might be a bit easier if you aligned the RED dot to the valve stem.

If you don't want to have to access the internet to pull these pages you save, the only thing I know to do would be to copy the text to "Word" or "notepad". After that I'm computer challenged.

Does that help ya Fritz?
Yes sir, thanks!

I would strongly recomend you fix the shaking.
Balance wheels, ture wheels ect.
Sometimes it ain't easy.

I agree, the L's are actually pretty smooth running big singles, it shouldn't be shaking like that. Maybe the po had a limp wrist and undertightened everything?

Thanks for the help on my fork swap problem everyone. While they will not be good as a modern Cr450 set up, they should be stiffer than the stock legs.
Now to check on what Racetech has to offer for the fork tubes, see if the stock XR caliper will bolt up, and slap it on!

I've always been under the impression the colored dot is the light spot.

It must vary from manufacture to manfacture because I know Dunlop is heavy at the dot. They use orange.
Thanks Steve, I'll test at next tire change with the Metzler made tires and report.

If you need more than ounce of weights the tire is not mounted on the right spot.

It depends...

It goes one way if you run a beadlock and the other if you don't...

Lets see who gets the answer right first...

Well maybe Ebay can help. Do ya know what will? What years?

BTW on the tires, if you look on the inside you can spot the splice on the inside on most tires. The heavy spot is at the splice.

I don't sleep the entire time at the tire plant.

I agree.....my full knobs have rarely needed any weights, and if they did it was minimal. That wheel was running another rims worth of weights on the spokes....of course lining the dot up would have helped that tremendously

OK, So it's a Harley but it's what I found

Normally, a shop that knows what they are doing will mount the red dot aligned with the valve stem.
