Nice dial gauge adaptor! I have a small one that can actually go on without removing the tank...a bit tricky with the H2..


Just tried it now with tank mounted. No problems at all, neither on nr. 2 cylinder. Must be more room btw. engine and tank on a H1, compared to a H2. What do I know :lol:

Shortly after getting my H1 together and running I was dragging the pegs at Deals Gap with ~20 year old K-81s... :oops:

The K81's come in two different compounds. The Metric sizes are a modern sports compound, while the Imperial sizes are more a touring compound, both work fine . It's not too hard to scrape the mufflers/pipes on a H1, everyone threw away the centre-stand already, yeah?! :think:

Rod - do ya know if there is a code (numbers / letters) written on the side of the tyre, so one can tell the compounds from each other?

That is cool, Peter, I went and had another look, and the softer compound has a "GP" designator after the tire size. :thumbup:

Yes - I managed to find them on this site http://www.wheelhousetyres.co.uk/130-80-18-66h-dunlop-tt100-gp-rear.html (I' m not releated to this company in anyway)

Mine however, are the non-GP compound, which makes them considerably cheaper. But I guess I'll have to ride more sedately (which were my intention anyway )
There are other bikes if I want to drag a knee:

This means suddenly on a curve the rear wheel Falls down so you need stand up the bike a little and it's ok. On the left side you still run the central stand on the tarmac :D and on the right exhausts and footpeg :mrgreen:
