Default My lil Companion ...

Well its been quiet some time since I rode her ... Been parked at my farm .. Now if u notice the rear tyre is totally worn out due to use as a dirt bike more than a cruiser , its clocked about 38000 kms out of which about 25000 has been ridden on total dirt/broken tarmac surfaces. Now my question to u bikers out there is regarding fresh rubber for it ... wat is the best size of tyres to get for her ?? Is original size the best or is there a bigger size that u wud recomend ?

Also do u know of any guys who modify bikes , wud liek a better sounding exhaust to it ...



cheers

If you are going to continue riding in the dirt, then get a knobby motorcross tire for it. You will enjoy the new found grip.

What is the stock tire size by the way. 130/90 on 16" right?

get a new bike suited for dirt biking

using Cruiser for dirt biking doesn't sound a nice idea
it is mainly designed for highway

Lol .... trust me I bought her to b used on highways and city roaDS but when I used her in the dirt I realised she feels as stable on the dirt as a dirt bike so just continued with it .... The prob is that all roads in my area are dirt roads and very few tarmac sections. The only thing the bike is not very gud in is the snow .... the tyres offer no grip at all --- zero grip and on that surface the smaller bikes r faster and easier to ride ..

Im still waiting for some one to give me leads on a gud bike modifier ?? Does automech make exhaust systems for bikes too ?? Any idea

cheers

Check on X-bhp.com
I think KRP (Kaulson Racing) in Delhi has an exhuast kit for it.
