I was referring to the actual size as underlined in the photo attached to my post, not the brand of tire.
To be clear, I was asking if anyone has tried the 110/90-19 front vs. the stock 120/70-19 and a rear 150/70-17 vs. the stock 170/60-17. If not, no big deal. Just curious.
Ahhh. Didn’t read did I. There’d be a greater range in 150, in 170 you’re stuck with what fits a GSA, MSE or 1290SA. Along with the price that bike shops reckon people who can afford those are willing to pay.
Sorry @Dracer35 , I’ll pay more attention next time.
No worries. I was browsing around just now and seen another aspect I didn't think about. Looking at the MotoZ Adventure rear tire. The 150 rear is $60 cheaper list price than the 170. As quickly as rear tires disappear, it never hurts if you can get a better deal on them.
Got some days off, want to go and see an old mate about 2 hours away via some great roads but we’re getting a bit of “weather”. Just thought you blokes in the Arctic regions might feel sorry for me....
Needed a little time alone with this pretty lady.
Great Pics but looking frigid!
It was around 32° F or 0° C when I left but heated gloves make all the difference in the world for me.
Just happened to pop in here thinking about the Caponord I test rode but didn't buy...
Great photos! I would love to see the color bike on the B&W background. That would really stand out. Photo shop? BTW, my Triumph Explorer is the same color as your Aprilia. When I compared the two, I just liked the Triumph triple better, but did like the Caponord.
I don't have any photo editing software but I could probably download something. I just shot these with my phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 8) using a few settings on it.
Funny you mention that. I had a Triumph 800xc before the Caponord. The triple was great on the street. So smooth. Before that I was riding a ktm 950 Super Enduro and I really missed the the v-twin sound and down low grunt. The Capo checked almost all the boxes for me except weight and suspension travel but I still absolutely love the bike regardless. Still think it's the best kept secret in the adv bike world.
The weather sucks here....
Wanna swap? Week 3 of 100f plus. Over it.
Tempting... Id rather heat than cold. Lol
Had a little free time at work and came up with this. Is that what you had in mind?
There's a leftover 2017 Capo Rally for 14500 CAD at the dealership in Edmonton. Everyone in this thread seems to love their Capos but I'm wondering if there are any common problems to watch out for on the capo? How has everybody found it on more dirt oriented rides? Obviously not a dirt bike but will it handle better than some reviewers imply?
I've heard rumors of people getting new leftovers for around $13,500 but I can't confirm this myself. I bought a very lightly used 16' model because I wanted the green and the price war right.
The floats in the tank swell from ethanol in the fuel causing the fuel level sensor to stop reading correctly. There is a recall for this which has already been performed on my bike and it's starting to do it again. The dealer closest to me said that it happens on other manufacturers bikes also. Personally I just reset my trip every time I fill up since the fuel gauge is odd anyways. The first several bars go away pretty quick and the last small bar seems to last almost half the tank. Only other issue I've had is the red warning triangle on the dash came on because of an error with the electronic suspension. The dealer didn't know what it was or how to fix so they said they contacted some Aprilia master mechanic named Brad. He sent them an updated firmware for the suspension and that fixed the issue.
Offroad performance all depends on what your comfortable with. My previous big bike was a ktm 950 super enduro. The Ape definitely weighs more and doesn't have nearly the same suspension travel or ground clearance but if you are a confident riding a big bike offroad, it'll do ok. It's good enough I can walk away from my buddy on a dr650.
Here's a little video my buddy made. Should be a little bit of the Caponord in there.
there is a yellow left over at seacoast sport cycle in Derry NH for 13500.. Sucks.. i paid 16500 3 years ago...
Are the Trax boxes mounted on the factory racks? Been looking at Travel Pack Caponords and have a set of Trax but didn't see any SW Motech racks for it.
The trax bags require the rally racks with a sw motech adapter plate. Even then it is still requires cutting the pins off and drilling holes for the bobbins.
The travel pack doesn't have racks since the bags mount to the loops beside the rear seat.
Givi racks PL series and Givi Dolomiti with adapter (included...) There're in black too.
