DP, stick on weights look poor on these nice finished wheels. black does helps hide them. I prefer using Dyna Beads inside the tires. I had them installed in metzlers on my California guzzi. they work great and didn't bugger the wheels at all. I will be doing the same with this f6c when its time to change shoes. poncho

looking at this front wheel on a non abs model.. other than the tire tread/belt direction, it appears that IF after you removed the axle, this wheel could be turned completely around and re installed rotating in the opposite direction.. IF that were so, no axle issues that I can see, then you would be able to wear the opposite side of tire in a more uniform manor and perhaps extend the life a marginal amount mileage. ?


some may go all off **** sideways about tread and belt direction and how the tire is going to explode come apart at speed and you are going to die a horrible death and might even scratch your new bike.. ok. so what is your point? I'm just saying IF you wanted to, you could. poncho
