  1. Suspension / Tires / Wheels / Brakes
    Thought I would throw my thoughts out there because I don't know anyone else who has put a set of these on a Blackbird yet. Metzeler have finally made the Roadtec 01 available for purchase here in Australia. Not the cheapest here at $480/set, but as I keep telling a good mate of mine, "I'm...
  2. Suspension / Tires / Wheels / Brakes
    Hello fellow Birdies After a dreamy first 7.000 km's on my 2001 Blackbird, time has come for the tires to be changed. I won't go into what tires to buy, since I already bought a set, and I don't wanna turn this thread into a religious cat fight :) However I do wanna know, how you go about...

    Before you think anything, I never do them - I object to removing 100's or even 1000's of miles worth of use in the space of a few seconds! I just wonder if they'd be possible, logic suggests not? Thoughts? :rolleyes:
  5. Suspension / Tires / Wheels / Brakes
    Hey all, this is my first bike in a long time so I don't know of shop to get this done. I've looked around for quite a while but can't find much online. This is for a set of my own tires. Also, though I've never removed my own wheels it appears to be much cheaper to remove them so I'll figure...
  6. Suspension / Tires / Wheels / Brakes
    I just installed the cont/conti motion sport touring tires (z-rated) (thanks ciscokid!) on my bird and they are great.. BIG difference, happy with performance thus far. BUT I'm getting some pretty intense noise and I really can't tell if the noise is from tires or a bearing. It's a high-pitch...

    Hey guys. I finally got a way from the hard riding sportbikes. Well, kind of. Still love my RC51. Anyways, I have a 2003 CBR1100xx and had questions. 1. If I stay with current set up(stock), what is the best chain? I like D.I.D. 2. Should I do a sprocket change? 3. Power Commander worth it...

    Hey Gang I'm relatively new to the site and I have lots of questions, yet don't really know how to navigate to get what I need. I own a 99 Black Bird and am in need of advice on several things. My challenge is that I've just reentered the work force after two years of un/underemployment. I...

    Bridgestone Corporation | HOT MC | BATTLAX BT-023 SPORT TOURING Has anyone used these tires? More specifically, the GT spec tires. Would be great if someone could opine on whether the BT023-GT spec tires would work well on the Bird... my riding is typically in hot weather, on reasonably uneven...
  11. Suspension / Tires / Wheels / Brakes
    Hey everyone, Ok, so the short of it is, I find myself living in Arizona...probably will for the next 6-12 months. What does this translate to...crappy (and I mean crappy) roads - pitted, rough, uneven, gravely, unfriendly (even to the best suspension), roads. :thumbd: Need suggestions for...
