New 888

Hi all
Tyres, boring topic I know.
Checking the tyres prior to my up coming trip to NSW the rear was leaking, took it off and realised it would not make it all the way, so I have the new Metz 888 going on the back I would have got my usual 12k km out of the old 880. Looking forward to finding out if they are any good.
see you soon NSW

Re: New 888

hey!! none of them were my fault, it just happened.
New rear tyre 888 on and ready to go, boy! they just clear the swing arm by a bee's dick. We just have to pack up the camper and bikes. I have a vibration coming through the pegs not sure what that is or how long its been there, its at a certain rev range and may be normal. I have taken the foot boards off and gone back to std pegs for the trip.

Re: New 888

Hi all, we made it home without incident, we had a great time also got to catch up with Chris n Kerry in Sydney, Chris checked my bike with the diagnostic tool and it passed all the tests, thank goodness.
2740kms Total for the trip and the new 888 looks great with no centre flat spot.
