For the likes of you and me not a lot, a lighter front wheel will speed up steering slightly as it reduces the gyroscopic effect on the wheel as you would have to use and create less interia to turn the wheel. Any weight saving is good when your doing long offroad work and know you'll be knackered by the end of the day.Both my wheel are shagged, what's the benefit of having lighter wheels?
Simple, You Can't, i've never seen an xr without loads of play they are all like that just another characteristic of this bike:blob4::blob4:Now can anyone tell me how to get my front sprocket to stop moving on the spline? It has alot of play on the shaft. never jumps teeth though.
you can do it one at a time if you wish and if you do it one spoke at a time there is less chance of getting run out on the wheel but it will be time consumingAll the front sprockets move on the spline, even on the xr250r, it does make you worry to start with but thats how Mr Honda designed them, and just to jump the thread slightly, I wouldnt mind getting stainless spokes for my wheels, is there anything wrong with taking out an old spoke and putting a new one in its place a spoke at a time until you complete the whole wheel. As opposed to breaking all the spokes out at once and sending it to a wheel builder, just thinking of my hard earned pennies ok
£550.00, (talon/excel combo) And I have a pirrelli mt21 on the rear and a enduro comp on the front. Great combo for every surface.They're lookin' real nice there Kristian! They match your graphics really well. Out of interest, and if you don't mind me asking, how much did they cost you? And what sort of tyres have you fitted?
