OK, with no trimming, or any other modifications necessary, my wife and I have ridden two-up with this tire on, and nothing rubbed, at all. I am about 165, and she is just over 200. My suspension is tightened all the way, but I've had it that way since day one, anyways. Well, happy trails!!!
IF YOU WON'T STAND BEHIND OUR TROOPS, PLEASE, FEEL FREE TO STAND IN FRONT OF THEM!!!!
Glad it worked out for you, once you get used to it you will ride very confident!!! I'm going to put a rear MT on my front, it needs replacing, i will let you know what its like, safe riding, Street out!!
ok every one i have considered going to the dark side on my 09 900 and have a few questions. hows the cornering? i like to corner as fast as my bike can with out scrapping or maybe just a little. is fuel economy affected or acceleration? next would be whats the best size and tire for me, i live in Washington state and ride in the rain all the time so thats a big concern for me but also a reason on why i want to change. any info is appreciated
mad i have 1700 miles on my ct. dry cornering there is no difference, wet streets mean i very conservative. the bike does move around more when cambers of the street slant this way and that... 25% of my mc tire would be gone now...no wear is noticed on ct. when you go ds you will play with the pressures... be safe have fun
tire life and increased rear breaking power is my biggest reason to swap. i have plenty of life on my current mc tire but when i do replace it i want as much info as possible. i replace my tires at least once a year so not replacing my rear will be a hug money saver. is there any difference when cornering?
Without getting on a soapbox I suggest you very carefully check how well your bike stops with a car tire on it before you put too much faith in it. I found in my own situation that my car tire skidded much easier than a MC tire did, causing a longer stopping distance, so I had to quickly learn to leave myself more room to stop than before.
I'm just saying, check it out or you might possibly regret the results you get.
Question everything, it's your health and well being at risk.
