When I had my tyre replaced recently the mechanic mentioned I needed new shock absorber bushes on both rear shocks - he showed me one of them, but he didn't have the replacement parts.

I ordered the 4 bushes from Honda - $20.85 for 4.

Just replaced them this morning and used some red rubber grease on the fittings as well when re-installing.

Here is a picture of what the old ones were like - in a word - stuffed..

Ask the gurus / Removing the insides of silencers

Is there an easy/correct way of removing the insides of the silencers?
Just came back from Gosford on Saturday morning - the ride was a bit cooler than normal, not a huge amount of traffic- but anyone in the Sydney region knows that Pennant Hills road is a bun fight irrespective of time or date.

And just to let everyone know - I like my rear car tyre on the valkyrie - so will be keeping it on for quite a while.  2angel

I have run Sport Demons on my other bike for a couple years, I'll be getting a pair for the CX when these ones are due for replacement. They might be a little pricier but they are great in the wet, and mine still have good tread after ~20,000km in the last couple of years.

I use Pirelli Sport Demon. Good wet weather grip and good price.

No balancing?

Mount the tyre with the yellow dot next to the valve stem , inflate , rotate on a piece of bar locked in the bench vice , check if it needs any added weights  last one I installed  didnt so I was happy ;-)

Have a Metzler on my 500 cafe bike front wheel - about to remove it as its worn in a triangle shape and is pretty awful. Putting a Shinko,Sportsmaster 110 in 100/90 - 19 on in its place

You can't go wrong with a Metzler but those Bridgestone BT45 sure do hang on in the wet.

Old thread but anyway....

That was a 'speed hole' for adding lightness.

And a tip:   Do NOT google this:

I've just had a look at my Goldwing and yes, the tread pattern appears to be going backwards.
I wouldn't worry about it as I've found the Lasertecs to be an excellent all round tyre.
