View Full Version : Some updated pics after replacing rear wheel/rotor/pulley...

9th June 2007, 22:22
I finally got around to installing my Avon Venom white-wall rear tire. The previous pic I posted (and the one on the AME site) is a Photoshop white wall. The real one is wider than that.

As long as I had the tire off, I replaced the pulley and rotor (to match the front). First time I got a chance to use my Harbor Freight tire-changer. I've got to say, getting the wheel dismounted, remounted and installed is a messy job -- especially since I didn't touch my wheel adjusters. Getting the axle back in place, while the bike is balanced on a jack, while aligning the spacers, caliper, rotor, axle and wheel, in 3-dimensions, with only two hands, is a royal PITA.

Any of my South Jersey/Phila XLF friends are welcome to use my tire changer, though, if ya need it.

Finished up the job yesterday and took it out for a ride today. Miles of smiles... :tour My last -- LAST I TELL YOU -- mod for the year will be the Progressive 812's which should be here this week. That's it. No more...

Thanks. The close quarter steering, at low speeds is a little heavy. On the road, it's great -- really made a world of difference to me. A U-turn in a parking lot is a little challenging, though, but I can live with that.
