Well, I stayed pretty close to home only traveling on roads that I know well.
1. Front tire was making more noise than rear,or so it seemed.Cold pressure was 36psi...upped it to 39 to try and it is a bridgestone G 709 exedra radial..
2. rear is a dunlop E3 elite about half worn.and its at 42 psi...left that one alone.
So I guess I will need to live with the noise cause my money has run out-bought the bike,got some chrome,new F4 +4windshield,rear speaker kit,fog light kit, highway pegs ....so it is.... what it is.... for now.
Still have a little drip hanging off the bottom from that anti freeze leak where everyone said there should not be any fluid in that area. It comes out of the weep hole but it has slowed down. After todays ride there is one drop hanging on the engine but has not dropped onto the floor. Last time I rode less than half mile and had the floor wet,so its getting better,just can't explain why its there.
Gotta get back to work now but will try another ride Sat afternoon for sure,just some local stuff to see if upping front pressure helped at all.
And I might add the wing sits taller for me. On the cruiser I sit flat footed at traffic lights,but on the wing I am on my toes more times than not,understanding the ground is seldom level...
..I learned the hard way a while back... wearing sneakers , when I stopped at a stop sign, put the feet down and they started to slide on the road dirt.I would have fell over like a dead duck but no traffic was in sight so I gunned it and took off but scared the life right outta me, will never make that mistake again.Boots and (1/2 helmet at least ) always,and I carry a first aid kit when going on rides.
