Just ordered new shoes

Post  jpierce575 on Tue May 28, 2013 5:51 pm

for the scoot!

I wanted to go darkside but am under a time crunch right now, so I ordered a set of Michelin Commander II. They are getting really good reviews on the Kawasaki Vulcan forums so I thought I would give them a try. I have no idea how many miles are on the Bridgestone Exedra Max that are on there now, but the rear one will not last another 3000 miles, and I don't want to make the trip to KSL cutting things that close. I haven't been happy with the front one anyway, so it's time to change.

I am sure that I will go darkside next time, unless this one lasts like everyone says it has been. I just don't have the time to change it myself right now. I am getting them from the same dealer that I bought the bike from, he has treated me pretty good so far and the price on these was almost as good as I can get them online myself.

My new rear tire is scheduled to be delivered Thursday so hopefully Friday I can have it mounted and put a new one on the front at the same time.

Brake pads were delivered today and once I get the house clean and the garage empty(AGAIN) I intend to swap air filter and perhaps get CB installed

The bad thing about mine is that I have no idea how many miles are on them. I have put about 5000 on them myself, and they did not know how long they were on there when I bought it. In the last 2000 I have seen some severe wear on the rear one, so it's time to replace it. The bike has almost 17000 and I know they aren't the originals, so that means probably about 8000 on them now. For the price they charge, I would have thought they would last longer. I might get another 2000, but that is gonna be way too close for my comfort. 80

Well finally I got my front tire mounted today.  It was on backorder for 2 1/2 months.  23     They found a different supplier that had one in stock.




Also a couple pics of my Grasshopper backrest I just got
