FCR Baby!! Now I gotta get off my lazy ass & order the bits n pieces to make it fit.

I also had new tires mounted & balanced (Thanks to Cyclegear in San Antonio!). I went with the Maxxis 6006's. I really like the way they look on the bike & have read good things about them from other TT'ers (Thanks ipschoser1!!). I haven't had a chance to ride, yet, but hope to in the next couple of days...

While I had the wheels off, I went ahead & tore the steering assembly, swingarm & shock linkage apart. I cleaned & greased everything. It all looked brand new inside, with what looked like vasoline for grease. I cleaned as much of that crap off as I could & regreased with better grease. I didn't have any trouble with any of the bolts, including the swingarm pivot bolt. I've read about other guys having a hard time getting it out, so I was dreading it. Admittedly though, I haven't ridden a lot off road & have avoided water crossings like the plague, which may explain why.

Hopefully I'll install the FCR in the next couple of weeks. I'm also about to order new springs for my suspension. I'm wondering about using the 5w fork oil or using 7.5w. I need to read a little more about it. I'm not sure if using heavier weight oil is beneficial to me or not.

Keep ridin' fellas!!:worthy::smirk:

I hope to get the FCR someday, have fun with yours :applause: . Let us know how you like the 6006 front tire, I have one on the rear and I think it is a very good dual sport tire, I have about 2K mi. on it (more street than dirt) with plenty of tread left

I just picked up my Maxxis 6006 tires, it looks great!!! Can't wait to put them on. Did you get the 120 rear? I opted for the 130, I hear great things about the tires.

I went with the 130 also. I like the way it looks! I did a little dirt riding today & they hooked up real nice. They're a little squirly on the street, though. I'm sure they'll get better after a few miles on them...

Thanks!! I can't wait to get it installed & tuned. Hopefully it'll happen in the next couple of weeks.....:lol: :lol:
