    General Ninja 650R
    I'm new here and I am happy to have found your forum... I picked up an '07 650R from a buddy who needed fast cash. He bought it for his son who just wasn't into it. On the ride home, the odometer rolled over to 2,800 miles. He kept it garaged and it runs great. I had ridden it a handful of...

    Been a long time since I've been on here. How is everyone doing? If you don't mind, please post anything here so I know which members are still alive and kickin'. I'm too lazy to scan through all of the sections to try to figure it out myself. I'm still riding the Victory Cross Country...
  3. Replace Stock Tires

    Ninja 650R Maintenance
    My bike has just rolled 7,500 miles on my Stock tires, and the wear bar is flush on the rear tire and there isn't much left on the front tire. I have quite a bit of recommendations for The MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tires. I have found them for around $300 shipped. Can anyone give me 1st hand...

    I'm new to the forum and learned a lot of great info. I need help finding a long-lasting rear tire. I do a lot of commuting and mountain riding. I only got a little over 4000 miles out of the factory tire. Any info would be great.

  8. Front Tire Size Hard to Find (130/90-17)

    General Mean Streak
    I have 8500 miles on my 2006 Meanie and am looking for new tires. I was surprised to find that the "stock" tire size 130/90-17 does not exist for FRONT tires [anymore...?]. I have found plenty of rear tires in that size, but I do not want to put a rear tire on the front of my bike. Others I...
  9. So I tried the Shinko Apex

    General Z1000/Z750
    I needed a rear tire for my 2003 z1000, I was going to get a set of pirelli corsas or mich. powers. But I really was woundering about the shinko's. I've heard alot of bad stuff about them like how they are straight drag tire etc etc. and how they suck. But no one seems to have actually bought...
