I know, I know....

You all told me against getting the body pieces for my bike, but I got all three tail pieces for $70 shipped. What do you guys think? I will not be replacing the side pieces that go over the engine. I'll still be looking for the fairing though, if the plastic weld doesn't work. Tires are also a priority. Anybody have a spare 110-70-17 and 150-60-18 lying around????

People take these things too seriously!

I have a spare BTO56 rear if you want it. I'd really recommend just buying a new set of tires but if you need something just to get you by for a while the one I have still has a lot of tread left, it's just a little flat in the middle. I have BTO10's on mine and I'm pretty happy with them but the front is starting to cup and I've heard of other people having the same problem with them.

I have BT010's on the little beast, I love them. I think you can get them at Chapparel fairly cheap.

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

Rick how many miles do you have on your BT010's and is the front starting to cup? I have probably 3,000 on mine and I'm happy with them other than the front cupping.
