Very nice. Thanks.
michelin arent listing the desert in 17" anymore in the uk at least.
rocking horse poo........
I couldn't get the 17" Deserts in Canada either. Had to order them off Ebay from a US store.
Look at post 15 in this thread.
And be careful before cutting in the pulley. It's only a few millimeters thick where the wire rests. It cut through it but don't bother about that. Seems to work fine anyway.
I think you will get the best result if you take away some material at the point where the wire "leaves" the pulley on low revs (or should I say where the wire first touches the pulley when in idle). No matter where you take avay material from the pulley I think decreasing the diameter is the most important thing. Then you need to twist the pulley more to get full gas and that in turn should make the bike a bit less snatchy. It's similar to changing size of sprockets.
You should also try to remove as much slack ass possible from the wire. But be careful so it doesn't rev by it self when you turn left since the left forkleg will touch the wire on full left turn.
Allways a good idea!
I have also found that adjusting for a bit more slack on the clutch makes it eassier to handle the bike at low speeds since there is less risk that you release the cluth to much by mistake.
So before you start cutting in the throttle pulley you should try adjusting the slack on gas and clutch wire to see if thats enough.
And now i'm starting to quote myself.... :huh
Here's an easier way to disable the ABS for a day in the dirt: http://f800riders.org/forum/showpost.php?p=287766&postcount=20. It's just to remove a connector under the seat.
Thanks for that - a good one!
So did anyone lace an 18" on the rear? Issues with ABS?
How did you manage that? unless you shut off the key, If you are just doing a rolling restart then your brakes will be at at what ever setting you left them. and seeing they are tradition brakes not servo assisted like the 1200 i think you are mistaken.
I've had plenty of stalls and the brakes work with or with out power.
