Hello I am new to this forum, I am in the Old World Spain (Europe) me what to mount tires on my car ... valky


Lo llaman darksiders.

http://mcdarksiders.forumotion.com/general-discussion-f6/


Despues de darle mucho al traductor me he animado yo hacer la prueba... como hablaban tan bien de ellos y estos son los resultados.

Esta es la moto de pruebas, Honda Valkyrie del 98, sobre 320kg peso. Los neumaticos traseros duran poco, menos de 10mil k.

Fotos del montaje, igual que cualquier cambio de nuematico. No hay que modificar nada en la moto. (con medida 205/55 R 16)

Ya que estaba en faena le quite los reductores que lleva el escpe de serie para dejar oir un poco mas la musica del 6 cilindros boxer.

Impresiones despues de unos cuantos kilometros:

Parece que se pierde un poco de agilidad en ciudad. No es que vaya mal la moto, pero si se nota que el nuematico no es redondo... la sensacion es parecida a cuando ya tenemos cuadrado el nuematico trasero.

En autovia y alta velocidad la estabilidad es muy buena, no se llega a notar apenas ninguna diferencia y en curvas va muy bien.

Afectan mucho las presiones, con 2,5kg iba muy seco, baje a 2,2kg y me gusta como va.


Con este post no quiero convencer a nadie de este neumatico, aqui en Espaņa tendriamos mas problemas que los Americanos para usarlos, ITV,etc. Pero realmente no va mal y la duracion debe ser 3-4 veces uno de moto.

A mi el invento me ha salido gratis, tenia ese neumatico usado de mi coche, lo usare una temporada para ver los resultados a largo plazo.


Un saludo y si alguien ha hecho alguna prueba similar agaradeceria sus opinion.

Vsssss

The installation I did myself. Remove the wheel and take it to a tire specialist to install it.

But in Spain I see a problem for these tires, the roads here have many circles
With this type of tire is not nearly as agile.

Will reinstall MC. Although my experience has been positive, with very good option in case of a puncture as an alternative in the absence of MC or adventure routes thousands of miles for its strength.

Hi Frangct,
We also have roads with many circles, (bends, curves or twisties) and most riders adjust their riding to suit the new tire by applying a little more pressure with counter steering, you may also need to experiment with different tire pressures. You may want to read about the Author Daniel Meyers experiences with fitting a car tire to a Valkerie, click on the link below.

Good luck and safe riding with what ever you choose, Jonno. Very Happy

I think Frangct is talking about roundabouts when he mentions the circles.

They just put in four roundabouts in my area of town last year, which at first, I thought was a dumb idea. After I went through them the first time on my bike, it changed my whole perspective. Now I find myself going out of my way to take that route and hit those roundabouts. Everytime I drag my pegs, real good, going through there.

We also have lots of roundabouts here in Australia, it is a system much preferred to traffic lights because it keeps the traffic moving, very popular in europe and the UK. I am going to the UK next year and will also visit France and Spain, will keep a look out for that Valk when I`m there.

In Spain it is very difficult to see a Valkyrie, there are very few. Here is the typical supersport motorcycle and Harley has the custom market.

Today I mounted the tires of my bike and the sensation was as if the bike weighed 100 kg. less.

I must say not bad for car tires for my taste but are higher in the MC behavior.
