HERE WE GO !!!

Post  Mad Mex on Tue May 04, 2010 12:20 am

Tomorrow is the day ! Front/tire arrived today got the rear last Tuesday & the Dyna Beads came in yesterday. Found a shop to mount the rear. I mounted the front tire ( by hand w/tire irons just like the old days) & Installed the Dyna Beads couldn't believe how easy they went in.. Going to clearance the fender struts while the tire is being mounted. Hope to ride a little tomorrow if the weather holds. Once the tires on I'll take a few pic's & post . I selected a Bridgestone Potenza 019/205-60-16 V
Got it for $89.00 + tax $95 & change O.T.D., At Lakewood tire in Lakewood, Ohio they couldn't believe what I was going to put it on. They are located at 140th & Madison ave. So go see them they will work with you to find a go looking tire that will work for you !!

YEEE HAAAA!!!!!!

great! Let us know how it goes and take some pics. Remember to take it easy to adjust and let the mold release wear off the tire...

What is

Post  Mad Mex on Wed May 05, 2010 10:03 pm

What the heck is mold release ????

I've been riding for 2 days a little the first day (about 20 miles). It felt a little unstable I'm running 42 lbs of pressure I think It's a little to much going down to 38lbs tomorrow . Got caught in the thunder storms in Cleveland today had to ride hard & fast to out run them at 110 mph felt real good. No luck got wet anyway. But sure felt stable in the rain. Feels funny when turning I think I just have to get the air right & relax. Well I check back in a day or so.

Speed differance ?

Post  Mad Mex on Wed May 05, 2010 10:19 pm

OK I'm running a 205/60/16 Bridgestone Potenza G019v what is the speed difference going to be Greater(more) or smaller

(less). I can feel a difference Like I have more at the big end ? Right or wrong ? Somebody explain to me no understand SE'

Is it like putting a smaller sprocket on the rear, more top end is gained. going larger more low end is gained . SE' It feels like

the engine is working less at the big end.

Here is the comparison between the stock and your tire

Specification--Sidewall---Radius--- Diameter---Circumference- --Revs/Mile- ---Difference
180/70-16 -------5.0in -----13.0in --- 25.9in ----------81.4in ------- 778 ------------- 0.0%
205/60-16--------4.8in------12.8in----25.7in----------- 80.7in--------785------------- -0.9%
205/65-16 --------5.2in-----13.2in-----26.5in---------- 83.2in---------761--------------2.2%

Your stock speedo was off on the low side to start with, now it's less than 1% difference from that.... not much difference at cruising speed....
