Re: Front TIRE size

Yes on my 92 1000 I have a 130 profile on the front and a 180/55 on the rear. I like the meatier look, however the bike is a bit reluctant to turn, especially on tight transitions.. very stable @ speed in level flight though

Re: bugs and gas mpg

My favourite way of removing bugs is to use a solution of dish soap and water. It should soak a bit and then the bugs come off super easy.. spritz rinse with a preasure washer or whatever

( imperial) on all legs. bike seems to be running a bit fat but still pulls good and hard. My 400 GSXR consistantly gives me 60/65 m.p.g., ...

Re: bugs and gas mpg

Put 300 k on my 92 FZR EXUP this morning. Topped off tank zeroed trip meter and refilled after 200 k. kilos travelled devided by litres consumed multiplied by 2.84 gave me 33/34 mpg. I rode with spirit. I'd like better but expect this is about normal Yosh pipe. Dyna jet kit.. seems normal not Fat or...

Automotive oils should be avoided as any friction modifiers will eventually raise clutch grip issues Hop this helps Allan P.S. Just ...
