up load your photos to photobucket , then you can copy and paste the {img} code to your posts.

QIMG]http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif[/IMGQ
it will look something like that but with the Q replaced with a [ at the front and a ] at the end
look in.....
http://s246.photobucket.com/albums/gg105/horseman8m/

just run your courser over the photo and a box will open under it and copy the img code , then in the forum when you post you can paste the img code and you got it.
good luck, have fun

Drove the bike for a couple of hours after the instal. First thing is that the tire fills up the rear of the bike, looks good. Riding took some adjusting. The bike seemed more stable upright. Cornering is a new experience, just a little more turn in is needed. I may need to increase the tire pressure. Recomendation on this would be great. I am happy so far. seems to handle bumps better. you can honestly tell that there is more rubber on the road compaired to the quater (coin) size rubber that a MT would be putting down. I guess I am getting a dollar bill size of rubber on the road with the CT. I leaned this bike as far as she would go with out hitting the pegs and you could easily see the area on the edge of the tread was hitting the road and there is atleast a good half inch of tread left before you hit side wall on the General Altimax.

Guys, my air presure was at 35 psi, I added 10 more psi because it felt a little soft in turns. Is this common? Should I add more air?

Thanks for the info. Since this is not a two ton car, adding air pressure above the recomended should not be that big of a concern???? with in reason,10 to 20 psi?? Question

M50 with 205/65

Post  the Ricker on Tue Jul 07, 2009 7:09 pm

My brother-in-law has the Barum Bravuris 205/65 r15 mounted on his M50. No mods needed. Some other manufactuers may vary.


He is very pleased with the tire.

Tire for my M50

Post  gundog on Sat Aug 28, 2010 5:04 pm

Hope someone can help me out on this..Have a 2006 M50 and bought a Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Poistion - 185/65-15 and my mechanic couldn't get it to seal on the rim. Worked on it for 3 hrs. 30 years expereince and tried every trick he knew. Side note..some of you talk about going to widder than 185. How can that be when a 185 is 1/2" wider than stock and 1/4" space to shaft drive. No wiggle room. thanks
Help!
