Brake Pads...

FWIW, on advice from a buddy with a 950A, I recently replaced both OEM front and rear brake pads with Galfer Green 1651 (formerly 1532) organic/Kevlar pads and WOW what a difference! These supposedly don't have the longevity of some of the other compounds, but are supposed to be easier on the rotors.

But the big difference I noticed was the great control over stopping power. A little pressure on the brake pedal or lever and it gives a little braking, as you increase the pressure the power is progressively and controllably increased. Very confidence inspiring! These will be my brake pads for the SE from now on. Got them from Black Dog Cycle. Price is about $35 front or rear.

After the first ride I don't remember it being an issue.

regarding fork oil

My current fork valving works well (stock spring) but my dampening clickers are very close to max (max compression and -5 rebound). Fork oil weight is 5W. Would it be a good idea to change to 7.5 oil, or something in between 5W and 7.5W?
Another revalve right now is out of the question.
What do you think?

How does one get to the air filter? Do you need to remove the tank

Heideneau K60 rear vs. Mefo Super Explorer on SE

This is for those of you who've run both the K60 and Mefo as a rear tire on the Super Enduro.

I've run a couple of Mefo rears and have been pleased with their performance for what it is and my riding. I currently have a K60 front on my SE and prefer it to the Mefo front.

I'm looking at putting another rear tire on in about 1K miles and would like to hear feedback from people who've used both these rear tires as to:

1) how many miles did you get with each
2) handling on road (dry and wet)
3) handling on gravel/hard pack

Thanks!

The manual says the SE puts out 450 Watts. Can I run heated grips and a 90W heated jacket?
