Am I the only one that went to Diablo Roso III.s ?
I've been reluctant to go with a full sport tire (as opposed to a sport-touring tire), thinking that a sport tire might not be stiff enough for the weight of the bike.

Re: Tire replacement choice ??

...I'm gonna try the S22 next, I need that faith in the grip of the tire past 55 degree lean, and therefore I need clear feedback... I'm sure you'll keep us updated on your thoughts about the S22. I really like my Angel GT II's, but I hate the grooves. I think Pirelli made a big mistake in trying t...

Re: Inspect and Lube Rear Wheel Bearings

...The dealership did not check the bearings at the first service (app. 7500 miles)... The service manual specifies a wheel bearing check at 7,500, 15,000 miles, etc.; however, the check does not involve disassembly. It is only a check for play and binding, so a lack of lubrication might not be cau...

Re: Saddlebag internal pockets

Can anyone tell me the name of the company that sells internal pouch liners for the saddlebags. The ones I'm trying to find are the mesh flat liners that install with velcro and dbl sided tape to the wall of the inside pannier, and are suitable for organizing small flat items. These "sleeves" are f...

Re: Heated grip temperatures

The "OEM's" on my Versys 1k are Oxfords. They put out a ton of heat, much, much more than the grips on my SX SE. Plus, they have 7 settings (since now we're counting off as a setting).

Re: accessory socket question

Although, I have to confess that the under seat storage space on the bike is so small that to save space, I cut the lighter adapter off the compressor cable and soldered Gerbing type connector so I could plug it into my heated gear outlet. That done, I can fit the compressor, plug kit and a few tool...
