Finally Swapped Tires!

I finally swapped the stock Dunlops for some Pirelli Diablo Stradas at about 4980 miles. Cords were beginning to show on the rear tire. I neglected to take any photos illustrating the condition of the Dunlops. A friend and I cut some rubber tubing in half to protect the rim and then set to work with a bead breaker, a valve stem tool, a couple of prybars, some tire lube and a piece of cardboard. If not for all the drinking and screwing around we probably could have finished in an hour or so.

A "friend" has a "friend" that will mount and balance both tires and wheels for $60.00 -allegedly. From what I understand, however, this is just a "guy" doing this himself, not a license

Next, I pulled out the two infamous plastic Honda clips from the front underneath the fairing. Here is a shot of the underside of the VFR where the left and right fairings are connected via the two clips. The clips are obviously shown installed in this ph
