Anyone on metzler me880 160/80 b16 with rear stock rim? Stock size is 150/80 but read that metzler is slightly narrower therefore 160/80 will still fit without rubbing. Izzit true? Tks

 

With non-shortened rear shocks it should fit without problems, plenty of americans use it.

I have the best signature.

I'd just like to tell you guys out there to be extra vigilant when sending and collecting your bikes at the HD dealership. Especially if your bike is getting some mechanical/electrical work done on it.

 

It has been a gawd awful 7 months ding donging my bike with the dealership. Apparently the mechs there don't have sense to check that everything is in order when returning the bike to their owner. Very very very unprofessional and inept I must say. Can you imagine a dealership of HD forgetting to put back a bolt on the crackcase? Not torquing sparkplugs and not plugging in the plugs to the alternator? Oh and my bike was with them since last sept and I only got it out in Feb. Afterwhich there were weekly tows back.

 

The whole episode was so depressing that I so nearly wanted to quit riding.

 

So please bring along a torchlight and make sure all bolts, connections and hoses are in order before riding off.

 

And for me...never again.

 

Cheers!!

 

Quit riding? Why dont you just seek other options?

The stealerships have a pretty lowbrow reputation almost in every country -_-

twin performanance toh guan. but you have to get used to the 4 floors of slope :eek:

Always ride safely and defensively.

Repair bike cheap and fast,

Repair body expensive and slow.

 

There is only one best mechanic for your bike...YOU

if you are getting a brand new harley, then i think they will give you a 2 year service package or 4 servicing which ever comes first

 

there are many indy shops around sg that can service and repair hd.

pay attention on your oil servicing schedule and your hd should serve you well

wanna ride with madness?

Both Avon & Metzler Tyres for sporty are out of stock! :dozed:

 

Tried ebay? I just changed to Dunlop 404 on the rear.. Prefer the Dunlop treads. Made in Japan.. err bad timing i guess they're going out of stock for a while too.

No I am getting a second hand. I am thinking of Custom Cycles due to the fact that it seems to be the closest to where I live. Any indy shop that you yourself go to ?

Btw I've got the header rewrapped and was surprised that there isn't any rust on the header! Looks like the header is made of stainless steel... :thumb:

What's up HOGs!

 

It's been a long time since I last posted. Am starting to get irritated by my loud straight-through pipes on my Iron o_O :slapforehead:

 

Especially now I have moved, and I have to park at multi-storey carpark :giddy:

 

Anybody letting go of softer pipes/have other pipes to recommend do let me know? I might even consider putting back the stock ones ... x_x

 

Thanks a million!
