I decided it is time to get rid of my TDM, before selling it i am going to sell some of its farkles first. I put a Penske shock in the flea market for now.

I was asked recently how the IRC Trail Winner GP110R 4.10s18 front tyres (tubed, rears reversed)

like these http://www.powersportrider.com/CGI-B...5C&catpage=836

and TKC's 150/70/17 (tubeless) work on my TDM.



Personally I think they perform well considering the TDM's limited off road capabilities. Very stable in all conditions with no sudden surprises anywhere.

This is how I set them up.

Firstly with no rim locks, I unscewed the valve stem locking nut out to the cap so I can see any tyre slip/movement on the rim. (the valve will sit at an odd angle) I also put silicon sealant around the valve stem to waterproof the rim.

On Black Stuff: Pressure front 32psi : rear 36psi (loaded or unloaded)

On dirt: Pressure front 24psi : rear 28psi (loaded)
front 22psi : rear 24psi (unloaded)

I've only had one incident of tyre slip recently, but that was when I was trying to keep up with this lot



I didn't of course I'm not that good a rider, but was agressively trying with hard cornering & braking over quite rough ground at times.

I'm not a fast agressive rider usually, as can be seen from the tyre mileage of 9,000kms out of the TKC's and still going strong with the IRC's @ 13,000kms with 1/4 left.

With not much choice around, I'm quite happy with the results.

Hope it helps you guys getting out there...................where ever that may be

Cheers

itsatdm,

Is your TDM any more stable after varying your tire pressures as above?

Pirellis for TDM

Has anybody tried the Pirelli Scorpion MT 90 ST 100/90-18M/CTL 56PFRONT
on their early model TDM?
I have the scorp' on the rear now and happy with it but it is about time to replace the Sport Demon on the front and would love to replace it with something a little more dirt oriented. The circumference of the above tire would seem to be quite similar to the OEM tire unfortunatly they don't import this tire to the states. So is anybody interested in a little smuggling scheme?

I just can't seem to get around to the idea of putting a rear on the front but it just might come to that. The Sport Demon has done quite well on a few heavy gravel rides lately but I would like to get something more appropriate.

Decided to sell it

I've been on the fence for a bitm but I have too many bikes and not enough space so I listed my 1992 TDM in the flea market.
Though I won't be disappointed if it doesn't sell.

Here's the trusty steed all loaded up two weeks ago for our 2-up ride, 1400 miles up the coast of California and she performed flawlessy as usual. The bike didn't do so bad either!

Man it has been over 20 years since I was last in Koh Samui when I back-packed through SE Asia. Was a beautiful place then... I imagine it is much the same just twice as busy

Here's my '93 TDM850 on a recent ride.



I have just changed the bars to a Kiwi-X set that are wider and flatter thus giving more room for the handguards that have also just been added - Acerbis Rally Pro with spoilers.



I added the Eagle Screens touring screen a year ago.

That's what I ran on my first TDM. An MT front and an AT rear. They worked quite well although the front started cupping at about 3k miles. I was alwasys afraid of the lower speed rating on the freeway. That was probably a bonus to keep me under a ton....

Hey BTM.. Are you planning on doing the 2008 South Island Passes ride? I shipped my bike over to NZ last year and rode with a bunch of guys off the KiwiBiker site and had a ball.
