I don't see how they can fully flip up with ease. I've adjusted them to fit my hand and they pull up comfortably ,as I grip tighter. I would have to put force from the bottom (fully underneath) upon the lever and flick it up, to loose the grip, but this would be a totally awkward and incorrect grip position. I've always had adjustable levers and find them alright, but your experience is lucky and not a good experience.


Hands on the grips, and in a panic you instead of reaching over the lever and then closing your hand in a downward gripping fashion, suddenly throw your fingers straight out without lifting them. They'll contact the back side of the lever while pushing up as the fingers straighten.

I have the R&G Racing Offset Spools that are also supposed to be protectors. However, as I found out today, you can't use them to remove the rear wheel when you get a stupid nail in your almost new tire.


They do look nice and do stick out some, and do kind of look cool back there.


Two more pics in the gallery.

Can you fire these whilst riding the bike?
What do you fire them at?
Isn't it a bit dangerous?

Surely this is a genius idea for a gymkhana event?!

Yea that sucks. But since the stock tires suck really bad, I can't say I'd be too stressed over it. I can't imagine these tires in the cold (they sucked in the warm).

As for fixing the tire.... Your gonna get many that will say just plug it. I would only plug a tire to get me home...and if tires isn't old (and hole isn't in center), I would take tire off wheel and do a proper patch from the inside. You will likely spend $40 -$80 to do that but I wouldn't do it any other way.

Or, spend the money now on new tires and it will handle better and be safer all around.

Tyres and Wheels / New Bike. New Tire. And a nail.
« Last post by ProfJeff on Today at 01:50:36 AM »
One day this week was to be over my 45 degree AM / 55 degree PM ride window, and it's Monday so not a bad way to start the week.
Pack the luggage for work.
Bundle up.
Start bike to warm up.
Secure luggage.
Helmet and glove up.
Start bike.
Go to roll it backwards to check it out. It won't move and feels funny.
WTH
Get off bike.
Look down.

Monday morning down the tube.

I haven't even had it a month yet--that would be tomorrow. I was planning on new tires in spring and use these "bad ones" through the slow winter months.
So......do we think it can be fixed? I'm guessing it's not likely.

Oh, I did take the other bike to work (Yamaha Raider, it's much warmer to ride at this temp too!)

I have a set of factory kawasaki ones and the are good. No problem with scratching or fitting. They have got a little shield on them to help protect the swing arm.
