Keep us posted with the PR5........ I'm headed in that direction, once I wear my Angel's out :lol:
Interesting looking tire, very large tread groves, the front looks much improved, with a slick type outer edge which will help with feed back when cranked over hard on the gas :D

Re: Anyone try National Cycle V-Steam wind screen.

I don't care how good a screen works :shock: , its about the "looks" if it works great but looks shit, I'm not interested :x , now if it looks great like this V-Stream, and its better than the standard, I'm interested :P , but for now I'm happy with the stock tinted screen.

Re: tyre monitor

Was told by my dealer that they could not alter the pressure sensor warning setting. The only thing they could do is turn off the warning. Common complaint here. Thats what i believe to be the case, i had mine turned off while i ran the M7RRs, then got it turned back on for a set of Roadtecs., i do...

Re: tyre monitor

thanx will try that dealer told me it might not of been calibrated correctly in book it says 42 cold 42 cold is way to high for the Angel GT tire, even with the PR4s you would only go as high as 40 cold. I notice my rear gains 4 psi (cold to hot) and my front gains 3 psi on normal general riding. i...

Re: Flat Tire

I found on my first tire change on my ex 1290R, that the nut came off real easy, 2 foot bar and socket, and not a lot of leverage, but the second tire change, and after torquing it up to 220kn myself, i had to use the ratchet gun to remove the nut. i smear a little grease on the threads also.

Re: Do the vibrations get better?

16,000Kms on mine, mild vibration, bars and right peg i think from memory, but mild, its a twin (a fucking big twin) the engine does smooth out, it takes about 1600Kms to fully run in and settle in. I have a 640 track bike, now that thing vibrates the shit out of me. :D
