So, how we all going on tyres?Just fitted my 5th rear at 28,000 ks
Sticking with the Mitas EO7



Just asmall tech tip also.............. use the axle in from the wrong side initially to line up the hub splines in the diff, once its in, pull the axle and insert from correct side


Also, am I the first to run a dual battery setup?

Fitted the first set of K60's to the bike before the last trip.

It was interesting.

Tires covered in wax, raining as I set off, road only trip, putty road first...Like I said interesting..

After 500Km I think some of the nipples had actually worn off.

Different world these tyres.

Now I suppose I need some protection to allow me to boost my real off road skills. I knew this would happen.

They did throw some good roost all over my mates RT at one stage though. They have their uses.

It looks great, Im anxious to try it!!!


So you're leaving the 17" rear for now? I think I've seen that setup before.....



Let us know how you like it.

You are a bit exaggerated!!
There are quite a lot of bikes with this setup.

Yeah, Im living the 17 rear wheel for the moment.

I dont know why in Spain (and I think in Europe) there arent Excel 21 rims with 32 holes.
After months searching Ive found a workshop in Barcelona specialized in supermotard kits and they found interesting my project. They find this rim in a Spanish manufacturer, made the modifications and now we are going to try it.
If is strong enough they want to sell it as a kit and then perhaps we are going to try with the rear wheel.

I think is going to be a beast!!
