Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

Sorry. I was fighting a tire for literally hours. Couldnít get the bead to seal all the way around. Finally just had a couple whiskey drinks and held the air on with my eyes closed.

I went through same thing with Q3+ and they never we right after. Even did the nylon strap trick at 60psi. Don't know what it is about them but wish they weren't such an issue but outside of that, I liked them.

Ibuchon- thatís incredible work, thanks so much man.

Caz - I started to type how godawful that combo is, but it might be getting into ďso crazy it might workĒ territory. 

An update on motocomposites:

By 1 hr from close of business I hadnít heard back yet, so I called them.  Talked to a new customer service rep who hadnít heard anything about my case and said no one had read my emails from Friday.

He looked at the pics and said he agreed thst all the issues were issues, and that he was filing a claim with the factory in China, and that at their discretion it was refund or replace.  They donít have the matte twill in stock, so I can send the whole shebang back and get a matching set of glossy twill parts of the replacement route is chosen.  Iíll know tomorrow.

I may also give them the option of giving me a few hundred of my money back and me keeping the parts as is, a training partner of mine owns an auto paint shop that does carbon fiber restoration and was fairly confident he could clear coat/epoxy/sand etc the parts and get them in pretty damn close to perfect condition (well all but the scratches on in perfect condition, the scratched one pretty close) for about 100 bucks. 

Iíll let you guys know.

You have to be careful what you wish for I can see the Kawasaki designers seeing this and planning it in the next round of colour changes.
Better to arrive 10 minutes late in this world than to arrive years too early in the next.
