You DOG,
When can i see/feel your bike with new rubber?
2.50 front is a good decision. After riding zma's, Enfields & all, the RXZ felt like a pocket size rocket. A short ride on your bike refreshed too many of my college day's memories when i used to ride the RX100/Shogun like a quick - gun - murugun.

VFM & a feel good bike.
Way to go bro, my search is on too, lets see what i find.

Ride safe,
see you soon.

Yaar the rubber feels good, but the other day i went into a BAAD pothole. The handling has been a little off since then. Have to get the cone set checked.

I received a quotation of 8k to 10k for my fiero as the fork leg also need to be replaced. 4k may be only for the disc brake.

Just bought the entire Pulsar fork kit along with the disc. The only thing not needed was the T-plate. Got a bill of 8k.
