"Great sport touring tire, I got these tires specifically to ride from Lincoln, NE to Jacksonville, FL and back, with a couple trips to The Dragon's tail. Over 4000 miles.
At the time if this posting I have somewhere around 7-8k miles on them. With 4/32"-5/32" left on them. There is a flatspot, but not very noticeable, the center just looks like its flattened out a bit, but there is no noticeable lip. Does incredibly well in the rain, had to accelerate past semis on my trip to florida in the rain, felt like I was riding on dry roads!
One thing though is since they are a sport touring tire, their grip is pretty low if you do a lot of canyon carving. Until the tires are warmed up I will slip, EVERYWHERE with any lean angle over 30ish degrees I'd say.
This tire is also quite a bit heavier than the Pilot power CT2, and will add a lot of rotational mass to your bike (read: it will make your bike handle more sluggishly), when I'm pushing through chicanes I have to put a lot of force into my handle bars to get the bike to turn/flip over.
Great tread life! Lower grip until warmed up, even when warm still not very sticky. Most people don't ride to the limits of their tires. I routinely skirt with the limit of theses tires on my gsxr."
Complete chain tool for most 520, 525 and 530 standard and o-ring chains. Break, press, and rivet your chain with one compact tool. Will rivet hollow nose master links (will not rivet solid soft-nose pins). Will push pin completely through link/side plate. Hardened body, riveting tip and breaker pin for strength and durability. Removable handle for compact storage. Perfect for your trail/road tool pack if you have a chain with a rivet master link. One year limited warranty.
"I have this tool and it works good for riveting chains and pressing the plates on. But as a breaker it doesn't do well... The pin used to push out the old links sheared on me. Thankfully I had cheapy harbor freight chain breaker that did the job fine. I feel better riveting chains on with this tool than the jerry-rigged harbor freight tool. I would not recommend using this as a breaker tool though. Not durable enough in my opinion."
Graves Motorsports Swingarm Shark Guards mount on the underside of the swingarm on the chain side in front of the rear sprocket. The Shark Guard is designed to help prevent injury to hands, fingers, feet, toes, etc. that can get caught between the chain and rear sprocket in the event of a crash. Fitment: The Graves Motorsports Shark Guards have a universal fitment and can be used on motorcycle swingarms with a flat underside and various sportbikes where a flat bolting surface is available.
"Good build quality, nice solid aluminum, but the bolt holes are not really accessible.... the one near the inside radius is fine to get to with a allen wrench, but the one on the outside is an absolute nightmare. It took me 5 minutes to tighten that bolt due to not being able to fit even the short end of a allen into the space. They really should drill a hole directly down from that bolt hole so you can reach it easier.
Be wary to install this you need to drill into your swingarm and tap threads for it.
One thing to take note is that the part may interfere with those swingarms stands that cup the swingarm. As I have to remove the back bolt and rotate the guard forward so I can put the swingarm stand further up to remove the axle and what not."
You got a great quality helmet from HJC now you need to match the face shield with your riding conditions. HJC puts a custom twist on the available shield for your helmet. They developed the RST mirror coating that reflects light with the vacuum applied metallic compound coating. The gradient smoke and hi-def orange change the lighting on the upper half of the shield and remain clear on the lower half for unrestricted visibility. Note: the HJC HJ-09 helmet shield fits these helmets: AC-12, CL-SP, CL-15, CL-16, CS-R1, FS-10, and FS-15 as well as all Joe Rocket Helmets.
To keep your undertail clean, nothing works better than rear huggers. PUIG rear huggers are delivered with all needed hardware and very easy to follow instructions. Paintable material that will perfectly fit your bike. Constructed from durable ABS plastic. Carbon look. Anti-vibration mounting system to assure a long life. Note: Image is for display purposes only and actual item will vary according to fitment.
"I bought this for my 06 gsxr 750 and it came with laser etched name plates on the sides with a big "R". It looks pretty good, though from up close you can tell it's just a fake carbon pattern. I believe it's just a painted pattern, not hydrodipped. Why I wouldn't recommend this to a friend though is that one of the mounting holes snapped after my second ride! The bolt hole on the left side (above the chain) the plastic cracked and snapped off... terrible plastic quality if you ask me."
Woodcraft engine covers are designed to keep your bike oil tight in the event of a crash as well as to give your bike a custom look that will make you stand out from the crowd. All of Woodcrafts covers are 100% CNC-machined from 6061 billet aluminum to give you both great looks and exceptional strength. Right hand side starter idle gear cover. All gaskets included (if necessary). All mounting hardware included.
"I had the stator cover for my 06 gsxr 750 and wanted the starter cover to match. Feels beefy and good overall finish. Though it seems that if left in the sun too long the color will begin to fade to a very dark black/purple finish instead of the full-on black. Feels a lot beefier than the stock. You won't be saving weight with these, but I'm sure they'll survive a crash way better."
Woodcraft 2-piece engine covers are designed to keep your bike oil tight in the event of a crash as well as to give your bike a custom look that will make you stand out from the crowd. All of Woodcrafts covers are 100% CNC-machined from 6061 billet aluminum to give you both great looks and exceptional strength. The patented replaceable stainless steel or aluminum skid plate adds wear resistance in the most vulnerable area and can keep your cover both functional and looking good through multiple crashes.

As a clutch cover protector, this piece bolts over the top of the large clutch cover and protects it in its most vulnerable area. Comes with the trademark Woodcraft removable stainless steel skid pad; other materials and colors sold separately. All gaskets included (if necessary). All mounting hardware included.
"For the price it seems a bit on the expensive side, but then again what wood craft part isnt? It's unfortunately gone through testing already, but it held up great, saved the engine cover! On my 06 gsxr 750 all you had to do was replace 3 bolts (they included allen bolts). The skid plate bolts on from the opposite side."

"I got a little over 14,000 miles on the sprocket before it needed to get replaced (and mainly because of my chain stretching). riding was split between 20% hard riding and 80% cruising/street. Looks nice, but due to it's gold color, road grime and most chain lubes will make it look dirty."
Pilot Power 2CT tires add two-compound technology to the already renowned Pilot Power range. While 2CT technology originated in MotoGP racing, Pilot Power 2CT tires are intended for the most demanding sportbike riders, who use their bikes both on the road and for track days. Its tread surface is divided into three separate areas, incorporating two different rubber compounds. This helps provide numerous benefits in terms of dry grip, lean angle, handling and progressive acceleration and braking on wet surfaces. Track-day tire thats equally at home on the road. Real MotoGP technology from the tire company that introduced dual-compound tires in GP racing. 20% softer rubber mix on the edges of the tread yields phenomenal cornering grip. Lean angles up to 51.2 measured on Michelin test track. Precise handling and feedback. An extension of the Pilot Power line, not a replacement. The Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires are rated W and up to 168 mph.
"I've put around 5500 miles on my tires, and am at about 3/32 - 4/32" left at the center (I do mainly street riding), my friend has bridgestone tires (stock on the new zx-6's) with 3-4k miles, and is already under minimum at the center.
Great cornering traction, I have had it get greasy on me on a super hot day when I was taking clovers but otherwise on dry clean pavement you can easily go all the way down to the edge of the tire and still feel confident.
The interstate will eat these tires so if you do mainly highway miles go with a harder tire, after 100 miles on the interstate and I got a pretty bad flat spot."
