After a couple weak wheelies the front tire was flat.
At least I did get a little fix. felt good. I've got some suspension
adjusting to do. Front felt soft rear was firm. Need a better testing area
other than sewer covers.

Awww come on pluric, blue ones can't do that. Admit it, you just fell off the truck backwards. Gosh.

Review for those interested, even if this is the pre-bluetooth version:

I took Sallydog's advice and slipped out for another ride today. Mid thirtys and I was rocking the
Firstgear onesie. Man those things are warm Shut the heated vest off.

Front end started to feel vague so I pulled over to another flat. Put the Slime pump
on and ran it up to 45 lbs.



Started to look for the problem. The ding I didn't think was a big deal turned out to be
the problem. I'm done with Yamaha wheels. I'll do a Woody's set up on the front too.
I'm thinking I'll stay with the 19 inch. Decide after I speak with them and see what options
they have.

Butter rim POS.

This is a clear case of rim abuse. You should be ashamed.

Holly... How that happened??

I'm running at 20 something psi and never had anything like that, and with the feather weight of 600lbs, I can't really avoid them by lifting the front.



Sorry for the crop quality, but you can get the picture.

Edit: by them, I mean rocks.

....that he doesn't just whack it back into place a bit.

pluric, you need to fill your tires with dry grass or foam rubber I think.

Did that happen from the wheelie or was that previous damage?

Cheers dude. She is actually doing very well. We are manipulating it a couple of times a day and although painful (probably now due to the torn ligaments during dislocation) she is starting to use it for simple tasks.

I think you are right, his business card states "FUJII, Hisashi". So does that make his given name Hisashi and would I address him as Hisashi San or Fujii San ?

I ask as I actually need to email him. Why you ask ?

Because the next day when I went to pick up my air filter and pay for the bikes check up I was told that he had paid for it.

I am humbled....... and I need to thank him. It would be nice to do it properly.

Wow, very nice of him. Fujii-san would be correct.

Could you please tell me where you get that shock?
I am trying to figure it out from the photos, yet can't really make out the name.
Thanks!

Only problem is it's 25 degrees out.

He redid my front forks too. If it's good enough for Dallara it's good enough for me.
Penske shock.
