  1. what sets bikes weight/capacity limits?

    What is the main reason for setting bikes capacity? Is it the suspension?, Bikes frame/sub frame strength? or tires? And does anyone know the limits on an 07 gsxr750? I can find the bikes dry/wet weight, But not carrying capacity. Im running metzeler sportec m7 RR tires if it matters.

  3. Who's plugging tires these days

    Picked up a screw right in the middle of a tread block on a two week old Dunlop Q3. What shops out there will still do a proper mushroom plug on the inside of the tire?
