    Most of the fastners on mine are stainless so I'd not want to spend 20-
    on these. 10- would have been another matter.

    Scored a set of RS wheels on ebay recently so I'm quite pleased about
    that since I'll be able to run radials and will have a wider choice of
    rubber. Well that is if they fit...

    The BT45s on the bike at the moment have done about 9,700 miles. The
    rear is close to bald and the front has some alarming splits in it.
    This is the third set of BT45s I've had on the K, the first set was on a
    base model (with lower gearing) and the rear got ripped up a bit. The
    second set were fine and now this set have split at the front.

    I don't think the BT45 is really that suitable for the K based on my
    experience. Maybe it's a weight thing?

    Have you considered Atkins?

    Do you get a decent milage and grip from them, you cheeky ****.

    Reputed to be puncture proof, to the extent that it does away with the
    spare tyre ...

    Wooo, how much did the wheels go for. That'll make a *huge* difference, you
    can run modern radials such as BT020's. If you tie that up with a damper
    installation the fast cornering stability and strait line stability over 90
    with luggage should be transformed.

    Too much; 127 quid including P&P but if the BT020s on them are half worn
    then that's about 80 quids worth of tyres... plus if I flog my existing
    wheels (or at least one of the sets) it should raise the other 50- or
    so. Maybe.

    Damn that's a bargain. Generally more like that per with no tyres.
