Best bet yet I reckon, it has got to be smothing with a direct relationship to the worn area, deffo NOT anything to do with bouncing/shock absorber setting as that would be random position of the wheel when landing.
If there is nothing wrong with the brake rotor, then I would be contacting the tyre manufacturer to see if any similar complaints have been noted regarding compound failure from that batch

This is more meaningless drivel, I have explained that this problem was caused by a not balanced tire assembly. There is no mechanical problem with this bike, Check those shocks. I publish only useful professional information from a 65 year experienced rider and professional scooter mechanic, Tool and Die Maker and Master Machinist Not from some inexperienced kid.


Just because my opinion differs from yours does not automatically mke it wrong or meaningless
drivel, what's more I honestly do not give a flying ferk how many tyres you have fitted or what qualifications you have, they do not automatically make yours the only opinion that matters.

I do not publish opinions, Only factual information.

I'm getting bored with this.

Lloyd - you can only give your "opinion" on this (albeit with years of experience). You can only give "factual information" if you actually work on that particular scoot and find the real problem.

I've worked many years in engineering, worked and repaired all sorts of vehicles. I would never be so arrogant as to assume I knew what the problem was without first inspecting the scooter properly and even then it may need a strip down to check before the true nature of the problem is discovered.

The constant sniping and bitching is bringing this site down. It seems everyones opinion is the ONLY possible answer.

Isn't bitching and sniping all part of the game on forums, just like it is in everyday life, and what pisses one person off is like water off a ducks back to another. Or using negative and negativity, buzz words often used to label someone with a differing view or opinion to theirs.

It doesn't help that there's this current trend of hanging new posts on old topics that died the death years earlier. Or starting new topics asking about what a quick look in the Owners Handbook would answer on the most basic of things like tyre pressures, rear shock settings, even how to start a Silver Wing.

As for tyres, what you choose are up to you alone, a bit of online research gives you the options which are now more than the Bridgestone and IRC's recommended by Honda back in 2000, and of course tyre technology has moved on a lot since then.

One riders positive opinions of Pirelli, Michelin, Metzeler, Dunlop, Metzelers etc on the roads in their part of the world are probably different to another rider who's bought the same ones. Throw in the variables like road surfaces, and the way they ride, and if they're only out in this 'riding season'. Then there's tyre pressures another thing that members can't agree on, and that's before you open that can of worms on the use of car tyres.

Wonderful. You get told off for adding to old posts but if you start a new one you get told off because you didn’t search the archives! I’ve quickly realised this forum needs to die (or at least some of the regular contributors do).

You mean the same regular contibutors that advised you against using Loctite on the clamps of your brand new still with the labels on Airflow?   Smile

I see your ego still needs stroking! The rest of us can form our own opinions.

You're still sulking so I'll trouble you no more.

Goodbye bloke from near Brighton, and have a nice day as regular contributors from the USA might say.

Amazing arrogance. This forum is closed to anyone else with attitudes like that around. Hence my post a few posts above.

Time for everyone to chill out. I've sent PM's regarding this schoolyard dustup. Consider yourselves forewarned.

Attack the post, not the poster has been posted several times.
Giving reasons for it does not justify it.

Next is the search function being a bit wonky causing many new members a fit of frustration.
Many new members are purchasing used bikes without manuals, yet are degraded for coming here to search. Using Google site search results in better information for me. But, learning the quirks of this boards only takes a while IF used regularly.

The point of continuing this thread is valid, contrary to the above post. It is a fact that manufacturing changes over time. Recalls/defects occur within certain time periods on occasion. Ceasing the discussion in the thread would assume there can never be a change in the future that affects quality and recommendations. Questioning a recommendation after a period of time can validate the recommendation as still valid should the inquirer accept the onslaught of escalating insults. Reasoning that lacking a previous response would indicate no change is an error due to several not willing to be the focus of the insults until someone else is brave enough to initiate a post.

Regular contributor argument is invalid. I'm a low contributor due to the fact most of what I know or am learning has previously been posted. Also, having knowledge of something someone posts does not invalidate it as others that do not have the knowledge may glean useful information or support from it. This forum is about support as well as useful applicable knowledge.

Edit: I was typing while you posted. This was 2 minutes after you. Delete if you think unacceptable.
