No rule that I know of? I don't think it was me that posted that.
Joe, no I didn't get up at 6 am either
Anybody got experience with Pirelli Scorpion AT 90's? I'm thinking I want something a little more street friendly than full knobbies.
A friend of mine runs 'em on his KLR. He's happy with the overall performance. Good on gravel as long as it's not too loose or deep. Absolutely suck in mud and sand.
IMO, this is pretty much true for all the 80/20, 90/10 tires. There's always a trade off.
I think the rear Scorpion is "ok" for around here, I'd still run a knobby in the front though IMO. My DR had Scorpions on it, the front was lacking traction on gravel.
Doh!!! I was replacing the counter shaft seal on my Strom today and I didn't realize there's a seal retaining plate (should have cleaned up all that caked on dirt and oil! ) which after having such a hard time getting the old one off I should have noticed. Anyway, while trying to get the new one on I managed to not only screw up the new seal but also jacked up the plate. So now I have to wait on parts. Oh well, at least it's only a $15 screw up.
Thought that only happened to me! Oh well you know how to do it now and could like you said cost much more money.
As the old Matt would say, you fu#$%^g dumb A@#! Thats a bummer, I've done stuff like that too. Sounds like you got off cheap!
I still remember like yesterday changing the power steering pump on my Jeep. I was pissed and beat the old pump in the driveway, it was mangled. I walked in the parts store and bought a new pump and he handed it to me with no pulley on it, and when I asked he said you gotta use your old pulley off the old pump....whoops!
Dang! You could have took it to the dealership and paid $120 labor to do it and saved that $15....
There are a lot of times it cost me money to do it myself and it cost more than if I had let someone else do it but at least I knew the next time. I hope
albie, hope your parts come by Thursday, or were you planning to ride mandem with me?
Heh, yup usually don't screw up like that more then once.
Mandem, I don't think so.
I've got them on my 950. Best tire I've ever run. Incredible performance offroad, equivalent to a DOT knobbie IMHO, and they are quiet and sticky on road. Plus they last. I won't run knobbies anymore, no need to.
I been busy today..coy and I drilled out the busted engine mount bolts in the block..two bolts the drilled walked on us and not center drilled The bolt on the bottom looks good and centered..no heat on any of them tho. Easy out won't budge em..all are soaking in PB blaster over nite..we think that the two top bolts will require time certs as it looks like (we cant tell anyway) we may have gotten into the threads on the bottom side of the bolt holes...I may use a dremel and see if I can grind away some of the bolts in the think..and I am pooped!
Very interesting. I fly an L-4 now, but waiting on a 407 training date. A hot rod it is, but I prefer the A-star. Great machine, and very simple to operate from the pilot's viewpoint. Mx is someone elses problem, but most mechs seem to like them. Hopefully our paths will cross on the back roads some day. I will be the idiot going to fast on a DR650.
I have a WR250 R 2010 3500 miles need to sell .
Trades? 04 KLR650 or 09 BMW G450X?
