Dark Fury finally!!!!!

Post  DarkFury on Tue Sep 13, 2011 9:35 pm

Well, it took me about a year and 12,000 miles to wear out the factory MT on my 2010 Fury. Today I had the CT mounted and it put it on tonight. Rides just as good as the MT and looks way better. It is good to be back on the darkside. Twisted Evil I also painted and polished my rims while I had the tires off. Here are some pictures.

Here is the before shot.


And the wore out MT. I corner alot. Cool


I polished the lips of the rims and painted the spoke and hubs metallic dark grey.



Here is the CT right after I got it mounted on my bike this evening.


Made a couple of laps around the neighborhood. Even had my wife ride. No more paint stripes on the treads. LOL


I am running a General G-Max 215/45 ZR 18.

I have about a 25 mile commute in the mornings and it was a blast. I swear my CT handles better than the MT all the way around. I am loving it.

Yep, it is stock. The Fury has a 21" front wheel and an 18" rear wheel. I tell you, I ate up the clover leaf between I-12 and Airline Hwy this morning on the way to work. It is just like when I put the CT on my 1800 R, it eats up the corners even better. eat thumbup

Thanks guys. I look forward to meeting you Eskimo.

I found that I had a little wobble around 65-70 mph today on the interstate. I was running 41 psi in the rear tire. I dropped down to 35 psi. Will see how it does tomorrow morning. The wife and I road this evening and it was awesome. Of course, I'm preaching to the choir. LOL

Well, I didn't get any wobble until about 85 mph this morning. I might drop it down to 32 psi and see how it does. Of course, I am a slow poke so I rarely do over 70 anyway. Embarassed I did notice that with the lower air pressure the back tire didn't try and follow the tire grooves in the asphalt road by my house. That was a plus. thumbup

Post  valkman51 on Sun Sep 18, 2011 3:45 pm

thinking about getting generals for my VTX1800C. Was hoping to find someone that had them..You like them, I take it you do. Have you had them on a bike before? Your rims look great.

Thanks. This is the first time I have ran a General G-max. I road a couple of hundred miles this weekend and loved every minute of it. I swear I am taking the curves harder and faster with the CT on back. Yep, I am loving it.

Has the wobble gone away? Did you use weights or dynabeads to balance it?

I may have to try one of these on the Rocker when the time comes. A fury was on my short list when I got the Harley. I was going to get one with the Intersate engine (blackened), fat tire, and LED lights front and back, with Chrome rims. Only thing I didn't like about the fury was the gas tank.
