I keep meaning to ask on here how that will effect my stand??

And I would say no on the stand feet, they draw your eyes too them away from the bike.

But yep they are the money shots!!



Yeah I hear what your saying they do draw your eyes away... thought it might work because of the blue on the signwriting which I think sets the whole paintwork off but yeah I think it will go back to black :)
400x10 front and back but that is a remade stand so I'm not sure how much is down the the tyres?... will have to get my tape measure out and compete it to og spec...

Ha! Bruce! I didn't know you were still on here!! :D cheers for the blocks again!

Tying up the loose ends..,,I welded 20mm extensions to the stand legs!!- I don't know if it was because of the badly remade stand or the 400x10s ... prob a bit of both tbh
