    I worked on my front wheel, and found new springs: 5.4 front instead of 4.8 and 130 rear instead of 150
    And the guy at my local jewelry made a .50 hole instead of the original. 30 on my clutch oil jet. For free!

    I figure I'm going to buy a set of Woody's wheels for mine. I see zero point to re-using the rim or hub from an 80,000 mile bike.

    Time to end this saga and get the pig up and running again.

    Wheels swapped back to dualsport/fatsupermoto

    This tool rocks. If you've never used one I highly recommend one.

    I just removed mine because of the buffeting!
    Ended up cutting a tall screen down to this.

    Check out the Rottweiler CRG mirror kit. I found that removing the stock mirrors removed a huge amount of buffeting also.

    Nice job! I really need to do this to mine but I've never spoked/trued a wheel.

    How did this work out for you? I have the stock screen cut down about 1/2 way and it's ok.

    Seems better on a short test ride. I'm 6'6" and wear an Arai XD4. Great helmet, quiet in clean air but the peak was buffeting with the carbon screen.
