    Hello! New to the forum - looking for R3 advice

    Usually I found that the bearing on the rotor side is hard to move and, like you said, once out seems perfectly fine. This time I can't turn it at all, so I figure it's definitely time for another swap. I'm going with the Nachis this time. Thanks for sharing those specs!

    Hello! New to the forum - looking for R3 advice

    @Gregger how have those Natchi C3 bearings worked out for you? Mine are frozen and I need to order right away. How do you know which ones to get and where do you order- from the company or a reseller? I need the ones by the rear caliper. If you have the item # I would be very grateful.

    Cloned Corbin Beetle Bags??

    I'd like to see them when you get a chance and to hear what you think of them.

    Wow! These new fangled air bags require a new gas cartridge after deployment. What do you use to recharge your system? I'm guessing some sort of liquid charge and then you're good to go? :thumbsup:

    I didn't look at the video, but maybe Helite's design protects better than Kilm, where the brain clicks in on the back. On page 17 of the user manual from In&Motion it says... " https://us.inemotion.com/en/support/user-manual-inbox/

    Motorcycle airbag jacket

    I agree about the company being less well known, and it concerns me a little. Maybe some of our Italian riders will chime in. I have a feeling that it will not lock up when leaning out in a turn, but I've also wondered about that. If it did that is less than ideal, but I think it would take a...

    Motorcycle airbag jacket

    The Klim was my top pick- it uses the In&Motion brain, but looks like too many ifs, ands, and buts about deployment for me. 75% is nothing to brag about. You can recharge the system yourself, which is a plus over some of the other Ai brands. I just ordered the motoairbag MAB v3 with the fast...

    Motorcycle airbag jacket

    Yeah, Sonny, like you, as we all know, I ride a lot, nearly every day (14K/year) in these twisty western NC mountains. And pretty spirited, as I get 4-4.5K per rear tire, if that's any indication (we've both been on those tire mileage threads recently). Chicken strips are pretty darn thin and...

    Motorcycle airbag jacket

    I recently bought the HIT air MLV and decided to return it. With most tethered systems you have to get separated from the bike for it to engage. That means no low sides, high sides, or rear-enders until you detach from the bike, which I would try not to do. Next I was looking hard at the Klim...

    J-B-Q Lift Adapter

    It's not my design, so I can't take any credit. I saw something similar on the R3 site way back. Rather than holes with bolts, it had welded pegs.

    J-B-Q Lift Adapter

    Sitting on an ATV jack- it balances nicely. The next set I make will be a little longer. These are nearly flush with the bottom of the sump pan, but definitely relieve some of the weight from that area.

    Longest Life rear tire for Roadster?

    Well, I'm not touching the dark side debate. I get 4,500 miles or less from Exedra Max. Apparently it depends on road surface, straights vs twistes, and how much you love torque. I ride about 14,000 miles/year, so I feel your pain. I'm always changing tires. Had a rear flat yesterday, in fact...
