  • Tommorrow's the first ride on my TLR,

    With my new OZ wheels. With the addition of the wheels, and some lightweight rearsets, along with the many weight savings projects I've done, And beleive me it's really alot, the bike is about 50 LBS lighter! All along, as the lighter the TLR became, it seemed to be a whole different bike. I know I could have saved more weight with the Magnesium Rims, but I chose the forged Alumunum OZ wheels instead. I payed an excellent price of $1280.00 for the set. Still alot of cash. I took off Chrome Stock Wheels, only to put Black Rims on. I weighed everything, there was a 3 LB difference in the front wheel, and a little less than a pound on the rear wheel. I'm sure I will notice an improvement righ away. Tom Shuda

                  Question for you folks regarding weight loss - If I have replaced the stock cans w/Yosh RS-3's and also replaced the rear w/a 41 tooth Vortex - How many lbs have I shaved? Not to mention the warning stickers and reflectors too.

                  Oh yeah, pics man, pics!
