I love hearing a good company review! I had Leo's with the baffles out, sounded wicked! And the heat Reduction was wonderful.

Jet kit, as you said, should smooth her all out.

Tires, for whatever reason I fell in love with dunlop d616. After coming off pilot powers. I loved the dunlops, I could take them to the fringe edge and they'd hold for me AND they're a good option for dirt trails.

The 690 screen on my bike may have made some difference, not all that noticeable to me, but not so unnoticeable that I wouldn't have done it again if given the option too.
(I'm 6'1-6'2 so that might have something to do with it, I'm pretty much in the wind unless behind a goldwing shield )

75% off. Less than $200 for a set of new slip ons.

1-510-232-4040. Google Leo Vince.

I had a set of those on my Duc, Cycle Gear had them on sale a year or two ago, and some guy there gave me a discount on the sale price, I think I got both of them for less than $120. They're OK, but they start sliding a little early, and they are predictable, and on my brothers Speed Triple, lasted about 10,000 miles, but I get about 3000 out of a rear, and 5000 out of a front. I'm thinking the softest Dunlop or Bridgestone tires they make.

Thanks for the number. Just called them up, best they could do on a set was 550 bucks. Looks like I missed the sale!

Next time!

Lots of the past week. And a seasonal picture.




Not a photoshop- high zoom to get the bike big and a lot of pumpkins


How about some other pumpkin patch pictures?

Shortest sale in history?
$550 is retail on their new stainless ones.

I'm going through video footage and thought I'd post a few frames. Hope to have some vids up later in the week.





Here's the 15-tooth countershaft sprocket and TKC-80s earning their keep on a loose uphill!

fuel taps?

Does the 950sm have fuel taps I can use to easily cut off the fuel supply to the carbs?

We are expecting first snow here any day now. It's going to be painful to watch those videos! The TKCs have been a blast so far! I still don't have the confidence to use all their potential on road and they do seem to be very slippery on a cold and wet road. Also sewer covers and tar patches are slippery. But oh what fun on gravel...

My SMR has fuel taps on either side of the tank that you just screw in to close. I assume the SM has something similar.

Yes-- lower front of the gas tank, easily accessible.

Yes, but then the bike won't go!?

Make sure you turn them both off before disconnecting any lines. There is a crossover line which runs under the tank, a quick disconnect line that runs from the tank to the carbs and also the fuel pump intake needs to be disconnected before pulling the tank. Also don't forget to unplug the horn and power for the fuel pump.

That plastic quick disconnect is fragile!! BE careful flexing it when you release the lock. I snapped mine off, a time or two ago, with the tube stuck into the lock and draining gas... Now I am looking into a metal replacement...
