Kold Kutter screws in knobbies. Oops, this is wrong. They are original Gold screws, available through Parts Unlimited and other motorcycle parts distributors.

Original Gold screws, not Kold Kutters. I've used Kold Kutters and I think these have a larger head.

I have a dedicated set of tires. That is the first time I have ever ridden them on the road. I use them for trail riding. Studded tires are allowed in IA through the winter months, so I don't know why not. They will lose their edge quickly on anything other than snow or ice, but are definitely better than nothing.

need to pick some of those up and put in my worn down tires. you feel pretty stable on those? going straight would be fine but cornering would be interesting.

First off, I'm on a KTM 450, not a heavy dual sport. Bike feels great on hard packed snow and ice. Seems ok on pavement, but you can overdrive the screws if you get to crazy. I have never had it over 40mph on a dry surface and I think you will dull the screws quickly on any sustained pavement.

Got 200 on order, so we will see how well it goes when they arrive.

That's probably a better set up for road riding. Mine are for off road and never really intended riding on the road much.

You need to show a detailed post of installation and the finished product. I too want to get some of these when the Adventure gets done being fixed.

Looks real good Dave. Should make picking up Casey's Pizza that much more enjoyable.

Question

I'm not interested in buying your computer but here are some questions you should answer for when you post this on Craigslist or eBay; which will get your product sold faster than in a motorcycle thread that doesn't seem to get as much traffic as a place specializing in selling computer equipment.

Did you upgrade from the stock Intel Core i7 920 that's 2.66ghz and if so which i7 3.2 ghz processor is it; 6 or 4 cores? There's a $300 difference.

What is the speed of the ram installed and in what configuration (three 4-gig sticks? how many open slots for upgrading and maximum allowed amount of ram?)

Are you including the keyboard, mouse, speakers and cables?

Still under warranty?

Good luck!

Any software installed or included people might want? My friend used to sell Mac's on eBay for outrageous prices because he included lots of software that exceeds the price of the hardware. I'm not sure where he got the software though

If you have an air compressor I'd blow out the dust from inside the case and get some nice photos of the inside, showing off any shiny heat sinks on your ram or graphics card.

Good luck selling your computer.

2whlrcr...do you have liners in your studded tires?

I've studded up a set or two before, didn't use liners but just used a set of soft terrain tires that had long knobs, and used screws that were "almost" into the tubes.

Looks like you put quite a few in there.
I learned the hard way that the more screws/studs you put in there, the less chance they will pull out because the force is spread out.

Kinda fun to do a wheelie over a log and then use the back tire like a chain saw and cut right through it!

Normally I like to get out at least once a month like another guy mentioned, but we sure have had a lack of "warmish" (above freezing works for me) weather this winter!
