Duro HF918 Rear Tire - Review

I am sure many of you have seen this tire and automatically dismissed it because of the off brand and the low price tag.
At around 9,000miles my stock IRC was trashed and the wear bars were beyond...

I think you can add at least .2 or .3 gallons from the top of the plate. When I go on longish trips I take the extra time and it's amazing how much additional fuel you can squeeze into the tank by...

I'm still waiting for official confirmation if there is going to be a non-restricted version of the new 500s coming to the US. Either way, I'm 75% sure the CBR500R is going to be my next bike, but if...

Remember, he get's his info from sources specifying the CBR at 12 ft/lbs of torque, peak power at 9,900rpms and a 12,000rpm redline... So I'm sure your sources are more reliable.

With ten thousand threads on how to make your bike more visible on the road, I never thought I'd see one about making it LESS visible.

My non-abs with a LV GP Corsa pipe, 3/4 tank of gas and my tank bag on it comes in at exactly 340lbs (weighed at the Columbus science museum). With me on it, came in at 505. Not too shabby.

I'd be interested in instructions on changing brake pads as well. Mine are getting pretty worn. Especially the rear.

As soon as you release the clutch the bike will start again. It won't lock up and throw you over the bars, essentially you just push started the bike.
Motorcycles don't need a starter.

Shift points:
2nd - 25mph
3rd - 42mph
4th - 61mph
5th - 75mph
6th - 85mph

That's how you take advantage of the little Thumper's full potential.
