Got my new front tire today and my new tube, read label on picture carefully. Anyway, I spooned off the old tire and on with the new in less than 45 minutes and took my test ride. Where I used to hate to venture up toward 55 mph, is now a breeze. The singing stock tire is gone and the vibrations at 50+ mph. I wonder if the rear will be that big of a difference. Good thing I didnt need a tube. Got to reading the package and since they sent me a cheap chain, I called them to get my tube and send their chain back. chain.jpeg

There should be some standard limiting just how junky a chain can be. Who here needs such an inexpensive and crappy chain when a much higher quality chain is available and for not all that much more. Given how difficult the front sprocket is to replace I would certainly invest in the highest quality drive components just for the extended change intervals.

...and if you think the stock front tire sang, you should try riding the TW with an SR244 on pavement! I need earplugs when I ride on the pavement! ...but then again I ride mostly on dirt!

If you spend most of the time on pavement the 203/204 combo works very well. It all most turned the Dub into a sport bike on the Dragon.
