Knobbs & Cushions??

Where would be the recommended place to order or buy knobbies for my 77 K-1000? Getting a spare set of wheels from a friend to mount the knobbies on so I don't have to damage my cast wheels.

Also, what - where do I find the butt cheeks support Doc told me about that uses 2 liter pop bottles of extra gas? He tole me once but I lost the paper and I can't remember.

Prolly going to lose the faring/windshield some fender stuff and put a splash deflector on the bottom of a sorta front fender to keep rocks & water off me and the engine from the front wheel ..

So what is the favorite place to spend the $$$$?

I've been buying my internet tires from DennisKirk.com

If you go over $100 shipping is free. There is a $5 per tire charge for some reason though.

So, why not apply that ~$500 to a dirt bike?

Yeah.... But I'm 66 yr old and weigh 350#......

So a 650 you say and Zfish knows of one in KCK for $800 but still prolly got to buy tires an ????

Front & rear tires + tubes for $160 - $200 total for the Kaw. I can sew up a sweet cheeks myself with material at hand I think. No tag, tax or Ins. to buy. I do not plan to wheelie through creeks or do 'trials' on big rocks nor drag it over dead falls. I am getting the extra wheels for free and hope to have a cheap bash plate made up.

Plus I live 3 hours from where Doc & the guys ride and I look really silly on a 250 even though they will carry me but jeez, that would be really embariskin..... Will mostly ride South of the Arkansas River unless I can overnight up there some. Really kinda far for a day trip for this old man.

Living on Social Security means I have to plan & figure & work around & scrounge and stuff & such. LOL

Maybe some day if the wife gets lucky with the Lotto......

I just ordered a new IRC TR1 from these folks.
http://www.americanmototire.com/catalog/
First order so we'll see how it goes.

I like Rockymountainatv too.

Ok where do I find those mirrors that will fold flat? I broke mine some hold last weekend.

Sorry for the Highjack DragQueen.

My first dual sport tire order was from American but after paying with credit card I found out the tires were out of stock, three days later. Sort of a hassle to get it credited back to me and that was my last order with them. I started using Dennis Kirk because it shows how many tires of the type I am looking at BEFORE ordering. Peace of mind to me that I know the tire will ship and if ordered before a certain time of day it will ship that day.

No affiliation...blah, blah, blah.

Cyclegear in Little Rock has competitive prices.

Dwight at Mainline Cycle used to keep a pretty good variety of tires too.
