That rear tire looks just about like mine was before I replaced it. Cuts in various places, that didn't quite go through.

couple things

1. Has anybody seriously looked into swapping out the front end for a CRF250X or 450X front end, no speedo take off so should be either a straight forward bearing swap or stem swap.
2. Has anybody looked at CBR250 wheel axle sizes for a motard setup? Might not be but could very well be same axle sizes therefore quick swap for back road hooning.
3. Where oh where can I get a stiffer rear spring, this poor thing is gonna die on me soon. NOt too concerned with dampening yet as I'm used to old bikes with crap suspensions anyway.

They have lots of small rips and are shredded a fair bit, after only 2k kms...

I managed 3,600 on mine, but sadly only maybe 20% off road. The D606 has way more bite in dirt. 120/90-18.

Funny you should mention this. I just spooned that exact tire on this morning. I used my trailer for a work station.



I got 2500 miles out of the stock rear. It was getting pretty bad. I am now ready for a three week trip to Colorado. I think the front will make it if not I can find one out there I am certain.



The bike does lean a little more into the kickstand but not enough to cause any trouble I hope.

More of a "song" coming off the tire now. Hard braking with the rear on pavement, you can hear the knobs springing back to position at low speed. I've heard they are not so great on wet pavement, so I'm taking it easy until I get used to it. Also heard they tend to flat spot if you do a lot of street. I've got to figure out air pressure also, it's different with the TUbliss system. 91 degrees here now, I was out early to beat the heat. I carry one of these in my Wolfman tank bag in case it's soft off road, or better yet, flip the KTM mirrors in, and lean it up against a tree. http://www.lowes.com/pd_55761-53911-...7C1&facetInfo=

SpeedoDRD

When I did the 13t swap, I did the GPS/trip gauge method, and re-programmed it, then re-checked it with the Garmin, and it was off. Did it again, and it was good. Just this week, with the D606 swap, I did the GPS/trip thing again. It seemed to be pretty close on mph, but I had Garmin/trip 82.0/79.1. Plugged that into the website, they said plus (green) 3.7, and then, it was way off. Did the Garmin/trip thing again,and it was Garmin/trip 66.1/79.1 and it indicated plus (red) 8.1. Just programmed it, we'll see. Too fn hot to ride now, I'll go out early tomorrow. I'm thinking the odo/speedo are off at different rates. I'd rather have accurate speedo, since the LEOs are out in force with radar to bring in extra funds to the town budgets.
