What tires are you running?kencorsun said:26,000 miles since May. New clutch (recall); replaced clutch master and slave cylinders. Rear brake stopped working TODAY. I'll bring it into the dealer this week to check this out and get another set of tires.
Other than that and the transmission clunk (1-2) all's well and I think the bike is terrific. It is far better than my '98 K1200RS (with 170,000 miles) which I still ride and enjoy.

Did you get the recall information without prompting, or did you have symtoms of a problem and then get notification?
Inquiring minds want to know
Damn! Problems like than cause you to lose confidence in the bike. Glad to hear you got through it. Keep us posted as to the problem.Catatafish said:FYI, I also had a big pucker on my Saturday twisty ride. Entering a corner, I got what felt like a stuck throttle. Heavy trail braking all through the corner as I fought the RPMs with braking. RPMs would drop when I braked, but as soon as I pulled in the clutch it would immediately go WOT. After the corner, and after almost rear ending the guy in front of me, I was able to hit the kill switch. Subsequent revving resulted in what felt like a 10,000 pound flywheel. Revved like a car and sometimes would hold the high rev for a few moments before coming back to idle.
Just under 8k, been to the shop 3 times. I'm concerned.
When I originally responded I was running Metzeler Z6s. I decided to get Michelin Pilot Roads this time just to try them. I'll let you know how I like them after I ride a couple of thousand miles.Faust said:What tires are you running?
