I bought a Valkyrie from 2001 year and I'm considering to put a 240-300 rear wheel. Can anyone tell me where i could find a change kit that will help me with that modification?
That's DeathStar to you, SurfandTurf! LOL!> You're right I haven't ridden with a CAR tire, but I ride with several gents that do. When I ride behind them, their patch is very narrow. If I rode to the Arctic Circle (9000 mi., RT) like 4 in my group have, I'd probably opt for a car tire, mileage wise.If you run it with less air the side walls flex and you keep about three inch patch on the ground. I found this especially helpful when crossing a road with a lot of crack batches or those black road snakes. On the gas in a turn I would feel the bike slide or slip when you would cross one, with the car tire it stopped doing that. And graystaryou and I have shared a lot of info you know your $hit, but have you ever had that type of tire on one of your bikes or even ridden one? The 205/55/16 I ran on that 1998 handled great. And as we all know these aren't sport bikes and don't have a great lean angle to start out with. The new 2014 and up is a lot better. But you could scrap foot begs in a parking lot on the first Valkyrie's.
