Re: Winter Lay-Up

You can have fun during the cold damp winter months, find your limits and stick to them and your insurance wont cripple ya. My SM-T is laid up on a sorn put to many miles on it over the years so now usin me k12r for a couple of years see how it copes with the winter salt.

Filed the edges of pad material down at 45 degree angle at both edges. Seems to have helped a little. Squealing is only there just before you stop.
