|Subject: New Pirelli Diablo's and front brake pads Sat Feb 14, 2009 9:27 pm|| |
I just had my new Diablo's put on today along with the front brake pads. The service manager noticed that the front pads were almost gone but my rear were still in very good shape. The ride is so much smoother with the new tires..as it should be. I barely feel the bumps now. They also replaced the front pads with a higher quality brake pad that are supposed to last longer than the OEM pads.
He also noticed that my front fork seals are leaking so he ordered them and I just need to bring the bike in to have them replaced. They have leaked a bit for a little while but I just thought I would have them taken care of when I had the tires changed.
But the ride is so much nicer and smoother. It's always nice when it is time to get new tires, other than having to pay.

Pirelli's Diablo are fantastic tires for winter and rain!
It is my favourite set!
Play attention in summer, (I don't know how are seasons at your latitude) the rubber has a grain effect in presence of high temperatures and have a drift effect!
