I had them do front and rear of mine last September- It's made a dramatic difference, plusher all round and has has added a little to the comfortable cruising speed, just by improving the road holding.

Tyres and Wheels / Re: Change the tires
« Last post by __Ray__ on Yesterday at 09:22:18 PM »
Do you change the complete wheels or just the rims to accommodate those sizes?
In the ideal situation the 10 wider in the front might work but the 20 wider on the back will change the shape of the tyre too much.
I would recommend the Michelin Anakee Adventure in the right sizes, good grip and handling with a good lifespan (i do about 14k km on the set).

I'm on the Conti TA3 at the moment...........fantastc grip on the road. Great in cold & wet weather.

Next tyre change I am going to go to the 170 rear and 120 front........this will give a better choice. I would love to try Dunlop Mutants.

Suspension, Forks, and Chassis Set-up and Mods / Re: K-Tech

When I had the front and rear reworked on  my bike with Wilbers kit by Revs in Halesowen it was the front that surprised me the most and was the most noticeable.

Suspension, Forks, and Chassis Set-up and Mods / K-Tech
« Last post by mad-dawg on Yesterday at 02:47:58 PM »
3 weeks ago I had a couple of days touring Dumfries and Galloway, then back past St Marys Loch and down the A68.
The road surface aint brilliant (lots of pot holes, worn sections and corrugations) and I got so sick of the harsh front end and the aching wrists and hands pushed me over the edge.

Rang Brook suspension in Bradford, took the forks in and had K-Tech cartridges and springs fitted along with bushes/seals etc, turnaround was 4 working days.
Picked the forks up, fitted them and last weekend did a very similar route (about 600 miles) over 2 days.
Now as others have said it dosent transform the bike but it removed most of the harsh damping, the rebound and dive are much better and it corners well enough for my skill level.
It was useful to run the same route as a comparison ( I have convinced myself it was worth the cost based on back to back test  :007:)

The only drawback is that I think the rear could do with an upgrade but will need another Scotland trip to decide for sure  :008:

Hey Mike, couldn't resist letting you know that today I learned that the 2021 750X costs €8790,- brand new, what?! :005: and just €9900 for DCT in The Netherlands. I have my eyes set on the T7 due to it's height and offroad capability (and those gorgeous gorgeous headlights) but it's 4K more. And with the coming of a new Transalp, possibly and most likely presented at this year's EICMA for Honda's 2022 lineup, I'm hoping they use the same engine, weight and price range. Damn, I need to sit my ass down on one of those new NC's. I thought the NC was well over 12K+
Honda lowered their price for a new bike, instead of rising it as one would expect. I'm still baffled... If I ever sell the CrossT, I only need a few grant and I got myself a brand new bike.

The Netherlands is generally the most expensive country in Europe when it comes to buying new vehicles (lots and lots of tax), so I'm guessing the bike is going to be an absolute steal in the US!
