Could you please share more details on this? I am not aware of these benefits.

Suggest you just Google Secondary Air Injection Bonneville and you will find tons of material and different ways to do it right from jugaad to using kits

I'm looking for a King and Queen seat in good condition for my Bonnie. Please let me know if anyone is planning to sell. I would be interested.

Am now going to take the plunge once am back home!! Did you notice any drop in FE or anything out of place at higher speeds or a change in the feel of the bike in hot weather when it really heats up? Is it all that positive?

Too early for me to comment on FE, though I don't believe there's going to be an impact. At higher speeds it feels eager like before nothing more nothing less. I think its in the lower speeds that you feel it much nicer.

Friends, I'm looking to replace the rear tyre of my Bonnie as it has a bad puncture and is running on the regular repair that I'm not too confident of, it already leaked twice so they have stuck three adhesive sticks into it which means its a fairly large puncture. What are my options for a replacement? The stock Metzeler is pretty expensive and the size is 130 80 R17 65H. One popular option seems to be the Michelin Pilot Street 140 70 R17 66H. I know it might reduce the GC a wee bit, but I guess it is fine. Any feedback would be great.

Suggestions and other options welcome, I would really appreciate this.

Hi Dinesh, I used the Michelin was my second tyre change. It is decent on good roads and also at a little higher speeds. But it is not as strong as the metzeler. I did get a few punters on the Michelin. Currently I am on Metzeler Tourance, but it is is amazing. it is already on 17K-18K kms. the Michelin gave me only 13K. the Tourance costed me 18K I think for both front and rear. The issue with Michelin is that it does not have the correct size for the front. So I had put the Harley's front tyre, since I wanted to maintain both tyres from same brand. I got the tyres through Nikhil, member here in this forum.

I went in for the Michelin Pilot Street 140 70 R17 66H. I removed the wheel at home and took it to the Tyre shop for the change, brought it back and installed it. Don't know why they have made the rear tyre change such a pain. Not difficult but lot of stuff to be taken out and reinstalled
- both the silencers need to be taken out
- the rear brake caliper needs to be removed
- the chain guard needs to be taken off
- the chain needs to come off the sprocket

There are two spacers on either side of the wheel that needs to be slid out and stored properly. Once the wheel is off, the Sprocket along with the cush drive needs to be slid out and stored (there's also a spacer there). Make sure you note down the parts and the order in which they need to go back so that you do not make a mistake. After installation, also make sure the chain is aligned and has the correct slack.

Here's a picture of the installed tyre.
