I Ride: 1996 Kawasaki Ninja ZX6R
Update: this weekend I replaced all my wheel bearings front and rear with an All-Balls set, installed the new (to me) lower yoke with new bearings and plenty’o grease, and installed my new (to me) front fender and carbon fiber (painted black) rear hugger.
The tires were the worst mistake of my life in terms of doing it myself... took me all day yesterday just to get them on the rim (ruined my paint job in the process of course but I’ll fix that later), and could not for the life of me get the bead to fully seat. Took it in this morning and five minutes and zero dollars later I had filled tires. The cornering characteristics are totally different now, it feels like a completely different bike and will take a bit to get used to, but I can already tell they are super-glued to the road compared to my Continentals.
I tend to get things right on the second attempt
