|hyperbuzzin||Ohhh, ya mean the interior of the tire, not the tread.... I see.|

I just have doubts about the validity of it since Darksiders have been around for awhile and they all miss this when they change tires...it's not shown and pointed out. I really doubt this...but like I said: "I may be wrong."

|hyperbuzzin||Hmm, inside wear (ya mean the center portion of the tread, right?) usually means too much air.|

|one2||Tire runs great...never had one complaint about it other than it revs a little higher than with the stock 150/90-15. But it surely is good dependable long wearing rubber...and at the time, that mattered most. About that inside wear thing posted awhile back...I think I'd either have to run it with no air, or very low air, to duplicate that result. And if anyone wants to argue that point: I may be wrong.|

Also, I don't believe MO has a headlight law, but AR does if you've got to travel through there from Shreveport LA (which I don't think does either)

BTW, I've got over 7,000 miles on that little 145R15 car tire and looks hardly worn at all.
I'd like to go bigger...like other member w/165R15...but other things just seem to jump in front of that. And if I am going to crash and burn, might as well be with the 145 anyways.

|one2||When I went to take the riding test to get MC license my headlight wasn't working...I wondered if they would would allow me to take test with no headlight, but they didn't say anything. Little later I replaced the fuse box and fixed that problem.|

No, I don't know how to use a voltmeter thing...to many settings on the knob...I'd need someone to show me. I just have never used or even seen one used. I'd have to have a shop or someone test it. When the bike conked out in Shreveport it was next to a battery place. Positive posts were on the wrong side, wouldn't fit, and even if they had one they were not ready charge...and they were closing in 30 min. I had to call my sister and they came and carried me and bike to their house about 160mi. south of Shreveport. Next day, I charged battery and bike ran like new. Thought about car battery thing but was afraid to risk it...being stranded sucks.
In the hours I was stranded, I checked fuses and looked for any broken, burnt, or loose wires...couldn't find anything amiss. Stator and R/R mod was done about 2 yrs. ago when previous owner replaced both (MSTBONES or something like that-forum member in Kansas), so I wasn't expecting any problem in that area.
Few weeks ago I tried to make the trip, but right before Little Rock bike started overheating...never all the way into the red...but once it got close with a needle size white space showing before it got into the red. I had to circle back home, stopping often...doing the best I could to get back home. Ran cool near the thunderstorms, only ride I was ever wishing for more rain. After I got home I replaced the thermostat which seemed to be the main problem. Then I drained coolant from all the drain plugs, new 50/50 mix and added some Wetter Water...and temp needle only got slightly passed the icon a few times and always worked itself back to or just to left of icon as I kept riding on the last trip...I think the overheating problem is fixed as best as can be. But I'm thinking that could have played a part in the charging problem.
I'm thinking I could remove the R/R and take it to a shop for reasonable $$$Fee to have tested (If I had bike here)...and if he let me watch...and the stator...oh the stator...does that dog bite

You can get a cheap battery for $35.00 @ Autozone But you will have to charge it for 12 hours @1.5-2.0 amps.
