So I decided to do some tire swapping today. The knobbies just don't last when hitting the pavement. This is the wheel change setup that's worked great for almost 10 years. Sorry I forgot pics but the Tubes are AWESOME!! Dave at Get Dirty Dirt Bikes sells some Ultra HD tubes that are every bit as thick and good as the Bridgestone UHD tubes. At half the price!! I'm using them front and rear along with the Ride On Tire Balancer/Sealant. http://shop.getdirtydirtbikes.com/110-120-100-18-STI-Ultra-Heavy-Duty-Tube-TB0090U.htm http://shop.getdirtydirtbikes.com/Ride-On-Tire-Sealant-Balancer-RIDE8.htm For tires I went with the Kenda 761. It's something like a 90% highway 10% dirt tire. Changed the gearing to 15/45. I want to test my bike to some serious highway miles over the next few months. After getting rid of my Ninja 650R, I'm itching to do some cool desert loops.
