BTW then front wears like that also.....
OK thanks
Am putting new seals and bearings in, will get new spacers ASAP and put them in when they get here
OH and only 5500 Kilometres on the clock, but I ride hard

Yep, fairly common, that's why a lot of the bearing kits come with replacement spacers. Nothing to be concerned with.

sorry to interrupt tire discussion

If you had a choice to buy, either a street legal E or a stock S which one would it be and why?
What would make me choose the E, I guess is my question....

I'm looking for a smile giving off road machine by the way

Thanks

the s has more subframe, so camping loads can be heavier.

the e has more power, and possibly not as adjustable suspension if its old enoguh

the e gets you instant nods of approval from people in the know.

the s is 50 state legal, the e questionable

otherwise, it all swaps, so who cares

unless you are going to be carrying really heavy loads, a real E without a doubt.

primarily because it weighs less.

secondarily, because it has an FCR instead of the mikuni carb.

I've ridden both off road, owning an E and riding a buddy's S. The throttle response, and off road manners were much better on the E. The weights can be evened out when you add a dual sport kit to the E, and take all the crap off the S. You can set up the suspension on either, though bone stock my E was much better/balanced/ dirt bike feeling than the S. The E FCR carb seemed to put out better/more instant throttle over all terrain, especially on slow on/off throttle scenarios and quick acceleration over obstacles. However, the S carb is supposed to get better mileage. The S has a subframe to accept a rack and passenger. If I was riding more dirt(which I am) I'd go with an E. If I were riding more street, and wanted to ride 2-up with some luggage, I'd go with an S. Just my less than informed opinion.

Free tee-shirt??? I've purchased two of their skid plates - no shirt for me!! Do they hate me?

you can vary the size of the tires without a problem (as long as you don't get a rear tire so wide that it rubs on the chain).

(your tires/wheels are either out of balance or the mechanic screwed up putting your wheels back on the bike.)

A few simple things to consider:
There's a difference between bounce & 'swinging'.... check that your rear axle is square & that they didn't stuff the allignment up when they tensioned the axle nut. What pressures did they put in them (some places will put them up to rediculous PSI to get the bead to pop, but not check it again.)
The swinging appears with the new front tyre, the rear Mitas was mounted a month ago and did his job ok with a front Trailwing.
The pressures are checked: 2 - 2.2...

The problem must be, ad you say, in the front tyre balance. I'll check itghead:

Thanks from Spain inmates!

They didn't put it on backwards did they? (Serious question- They're directional, but don't look it.)

Thanks for the information, I've got to sell my DR to take a shot at a street legal E...I'm just hesitant about all the aftermarket electronics on a bike, don't want the mess of having to deal with electric gremlins.

My SR relocation bracket is homemade. The previous owner fabbed it. I can take pictures, but I don't have the stuff to get good measurements.
