Hey guys do you have to upgrade the suspension No, in fact you will find the ride to be better than with a MT. HOWEVER - there are many who would recommend upgrading your suspension no matter what tire you use. (I have an 02, would like a better front fork suspension, just too cheap at the moment) and are dynabeads a definite requirement No, but IMO they do work well, however I've used the standard lead weights and they have done well by me also. If use dyanbeads, recommended amount is 3 oz in the rear, 2 oz in the front. ? I would like to find somebody close to me that would let me test ride for a couple miles. If you want to make a ride NORTH of Detroit (no, I do not live in the city even though my insurance company charges me like I do :wrong:), you would be welcome to take a ride with me and my riding partner. Thanks in advance.
You'll get different inputs from our esteemed members regarding the relative safety, reliability and other crash-and-burn items of using a CT on the wing, but IMO I will never go back to a MT. And besides, we get cookies :yes1:

Pick one of the popular car tires ( I prefer a runflat, personally), get it balanced (may not even need any wts, or use dynabeads if you want them), and RIDE!

Only a very few people have not liked the ct---almost all love them!

:clap2:Way to go Ray. I am sure you'll be quite happy shorter4. The Pirelli is a good tire. I should know, I have thousands of miles under my belt chasing one all over the VA/WV mountains.
