Post  stampman06 on Mon Apr 20, 2009 2:51 pm

having some bad weather the next few days so I decided to make the move to the darkside myself. removed old tire and tried the unmounted potenza 55/16 ,to check for clearence, had to remove the final to actually get it in there and looks like a tight fit but should work. bike shops closed mons. so i'll have it mounted tues and give er a try. can't wait. I'll let you all know how it went by the weekend. supposed to be around 70 here in pa.

Congrats dude! I told ja'. Just wait until you get caught in some wet riding conditions, then that thing is really gonna show you some stuff and how a motorcycle can't touch how good a car tire is going to be.

It is hard to believe that it works so well. It took me a long time to make the move, but once I did and got used to the tire. There is no way I would go back. (on a cruzer anyway) Glad you like and Im glad you are here.

yea, i'm glad i found this site. forgot to mention that i had to remove final drive to get wheel thru. even tried tire off rim prior to install and wouldn't slide thru. once thru, replaced final and had plenty of clearence. no grinding necessary. just have to find a 1300 final and try that out. still with the 1800 final and seems alright. not to worried bout speedo, don't look at it much anyways. too busy watching things fly by me. thanks again fello darkies!
