  1. FYI I shaved my squared off rear tire yesterday and it worked out well!

    If anybody wants to try this out it worked out well for me. My rear tire was becoming distinctly square from all my highway commuting so I decided to do something about it.

    Is there a tuner local who can do what Nels does at TwoWheelDyno? I can't cross the line at this time even in the Spring/Summer. Insurance issues.

  5. Sparkplug, stripped or just the gasket?

    So I was tightening down a sparkplug and I felt it slip after some tension. I stopped tightening. Did I strip it or is that simply the gasket sealing? Used a faulty Cambodian tire torque wrench... I don't really want to take it out as it seems to be tight and holding... it's not moving. It felt...

    Trying to find a guide to which rim widths support which tire sizes. I have looked at a couple of tire sites but they do not break out that info.
