MeefZah,

I got digits for you, I'll call tomorrow.

Luke reminded me that I could probably get a Metzler Tourance at a BMW store if I didn't want to drive 100 miles to the IP, I have a BMW store 35 miles away in New Philadelphia, Mathias BMW. I called them up, they are open on Saturday, they had the tire in stock and said if I pulled off the rear wheel and brought it up, they would mount it for free.



So I got out my book, went to the brothers who has all manner of tools, and pulled the rear wheel. Here is what most of the rear looks like;


which looks pretty good until you get to this part;

Looks like you have been locking up the back tire to "back her in" on the turns.

Yeah, that's not good. Something is a miss. Either you've been dragging the bike in first gear behind the car, the tire was way out of balance, or the rim is bent. Did the BMW dealer know about this and did they make any comments on issues with the rim?

Anyway, I took the tire and wheel up to Mathias, and they switched it out in about 10 minutes. I sat on a big ass GS 1200, it's very tall.

Came home and put the wheel back on, used a shovel and a 2X4, and got the brother to help.

Very rarely use much back brake on the street, do downshift which I suppose comes to the same thing.

What is cheaper and easier to replace? Brake pads and rotor, or clutch plates and possibly transmission?

I know the extra wear is minimal at most, but I always abuse the brakes first thinking that way. It is a pet pieve that drives me nuts when I am riding with friends in a standard car and they downshift through every gear to stop.

May be too late by then, and I am in EMS training all day.

Are you still trying to trade that meth addict in the back yard for a motorcycle.
