Re: Alaska (Tires)

A friend of mine is only gonna get 2500 miles out of his rear Pirelli Scorpion(STR maybe). His KTM 1290 has 160 horsepower and he is resorting to Rain mode to save tires. LOL I was going to Suggest TKC70. I have been kinda impressed with the Anakee 3 tires on the F800GSA, but I have a set of the Mot...

Re: Beakster Bash "Sweet" 16!! - Franklin WV 5/15-5/19

I'm working on the calendar for this. My kids and wife have too much stuff going on. Worst case is I day trip it down. But you guys from out west will love West Virginia. Just hope it doesn't snow.

Re: Need new tires....what do you like?

I was always a fan of the Bridgestone T30. The price was good enough that the 3 rear to 2 front wear rsatio was still a better price I never found them lacking for traction

Re: Pilot Road 3

I liked the Pilot Road 1 the best of all of them. I ran several sets of the Bridgestone T-30 before I sold the 1150R. The Anakee 3s that my 800GS was fitted with have been very good in all riding conditions and could mate up with a PR3. May be a few bucks less than the PR4 too. Michelin has become v...

It's a definite improvement over stock. I waited a long time before getting one, and then kicked myself for not doing it earlier.

Also had a fuel filter clog and leave me on the side of the road, but was able to be back up and running a couple of hours later. on the 4 spark bikes the stick coils are a pain but shouldn't leave you stranded.

Re: Howdy from Texas - Request for Input Before Purchase

No leaks from under the engine in 87k miles on the silver R and none in the 17k on the red r. I used Mobil 1 oil the whole time. I did have some leak from forgetting to put the fill cap on once. LOL

Re: Dayco vs. Bring More Wallet?

I got one at the dealership. There are different belts based upon build date and alternator. I actually have a short belt that won't fit on my bike although that is what came on it. long story. I didn't change the belt until 86,000 miles.

Re: What octane gas do you put in?

Use the lowest octane you can with the engine "knocking". You'll know if it knocks. In the warmer months, March through November, I can't get away with anything under 93. Have you hit 160k yet on the odometer? I just always use 91 or higher. There are also certain areas of the country tha...

Re: dry, cracked fuel lines

TThe quick disconnects definitely should be upgraded, and the fuel lines are an easy repair/upgrade. Also a good time to upgrade the clamps on the fuel lines.

Re: All in one biking boots: tall sole, weatherproof, no laces, and work appropriate

I have 2 sets of BMW boots. Got one on Closeout for $77 in 2003, and still ride in them. The newer(All Round boot) pair was also on sale at around $160. They are probably 7-8 years old. Both have been exceptional, and the old pair is one of my most comfortable shoes period. Feet have been wet once i...

Re: Tire Time

I've had several sets of Bridgestones. I like the T-30 Front, and the rear is OK. Good mileage and grip on front. Good grip but not great mileage on the rear. May be wicking it up too much.
