Tyres and Wheels / front tire wear
« on: July 13, 2019, 04:50:10 AM »
I just returned form a cross country tour, totaling just under 10K. miles. My front tire is worn out but the rear still has a few thousand to go. I put Michelin Piolet 5's on before I left because I heard they were long lasting. Not complaining, I know 10 thousand miles is a lot, but what concerns me is that the back tire has so much more tread. Isn't it usually one front replacement to two rear tires ? I was told by the dealer that the bike is front heavy, and because of the hot riding conditions, the front wore out faster.

Anyone have any issues or info about how to remove the shouldered bolt that holds the gear shifter on?
I'm on the road and had a spill that broke the bolt. I've tried to drill and tap the bolt out, but it's not cooperating.
Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated. I know Coconut has offered much advise here, so I'm hoping someone has done or read about the replacing of this f*&#@in thing !!!

Tyres and Wheels / Tires @ 20K
« on: May 01, 2019, 12:18:19 PM »
After reading quite a few posts about tires, it seems there is a lot of personal preference when choosing. However it does appear the there is a lot of others who do choose a tire that is a GT. Therefore I've decided to put the Michelin Pilot 4 GT"s on, instead of the Pilot 5"s even though the latter is supposed to be a "newer"technology. Any thoughts, or comments before I take the pants down and bend over ?? This 20K service is costing me around $2200 and I want to be sure I made a good choice.   :087:

Accessories and Products / Tank bag

I'm looking for a tank bag, preferably one that has a tank loc system. If not that, can anyone suggest one that works well ? I want to replace the original behemoth with one that has a lower profile. Thanks to anyone that may have a good suggestion.

Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring / Denali sound bomb
« on: April 15, 2019, 01:02:26 PM »
Anyone have any luck installing the Sound Bomb ? Have one on my Tiger, and it's a huge improvement so I'd like to fit one on the TTSE. I'm also open to suggestions for any other upgraded horn that is super loud. Thanks !!

Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical issues / 20k service
« on: April 12, 2019, 04:12:03 AM »
What's the general consensus about having the valves adjusted, as the manual recommends, at the 20K service ?
I was planning on having it done, but heard that the valves shouldn't need to be touched until around 50K.
Thoughts ???
