    Duro PowerMax Fine Tuning, Russian Style

    Here is a clever way to shave a Duro to remove swing arm clearance issues, remove weight, and re-profile to loose some of the square cross section.

    If you do not have an extended swing arm but desire an ATV tire perhaps this technique from the Rodina might be beneficial.

    Edit: I really like the rear brake/turn light combo. Anyone recognize this?

    Nice, Been there done that
    Avon tire on the old Maxim ran wide and rubbed on drive shaft housing. I just used a big rasp file.
    Of course that was back in the day when motorcycles came with centerstands.
    His results look pretty good. Pretty smooth radius.

    And the video gave me an idea to fabricate front and rear work stands to elevate the TW when doing some work.

    One of those grinders can be had at HF for about $10 -- when on sale. What a great idea.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!
