    I'm running a 280 Metzeler Marathon on my 10 inch rim. Currently has around 4000 miles on it and a lot of tread left. I think it's an 880 though, not a 888.

    Sounds kind of like me and my Ford Lightning. Other Lightning owners say it's just as much fun hood up as driving. I seem to do that a lot. LMAO!!

    I agree with Judah. I paid $10,999 for my 06 in July 06. I've got about $7500 into it. No way I can sell the bike for anywhere near that amount. As nice as it is, and it's much better than a stock...

    The only time I ever adjusted the bottom of mine was when I put a new cable on in 2014. Other than that, I do top only. I've never had the cases open on mine, going on 37,000 miles. Still have the...

    I check my air pressure before every ride. I have a compressor, so it's easy to add air when needed. For some reason, the Metzelers that are on the bike now rarely if ever need air. They hold air...

    I use the same 75/140 that my Ford Lightning specifies. Since I always have that in the garage, and change the final drive when I change the oil, I just use it. Hasn't hurt a thing.

    I have one inch lower risers. No one makes a one inch shorter cable. LOL!!

    Fortunately the stock length works just fine for shorter risers.

    LA Choppers xXx Big Airs. Likely the largest best breathing air filters out there for these bikes. The bigger they are, the less restriction they impose on incoming air.

    Longer or shorter? There are both you know. I have one inch shorter risers on mine. But most prefer two inch longer. Visit Mean Cycles website. There isn't much they don't have for our bikes.

    Fuel filter is more than likely the culprit. On my 06, I had to change it the first time around 11,000 miles. The second around 22,000. The third around 33,000. So around 11,000 per filter. Pretty...
