I had the shop close to me do a Dohickey upgrade, 2 new tires and get
her ready for winter :) - I get it back tomorrow night after work and
this weekend I put on my new front fender .... I can't wait

the new tires that I put on (Kenda K761) made that bike a whole
different ride on the highway. I love it !!!!

The shop put on new tires - adjusted brakes and clutch - changed
oil - checked anti freeze - upgraded my doo-hickey - adjusted my
spokes and aligned my wheels - adjusted idle (I suppled all the parts) ....
total bill $167 tax included and old tire disposal

It has never run or ridden this good !!! :) :)

Just from my experience I'll say, be careful with those K761's in the rain. I felt they were less that confidence inspiring in wet weather. Not that it ever rains where I live:)
YMMV
Edited to clarify. There are tires that will zip around that same corner whether it be wet or dry. On that dry corner the K761 will do fine but when that same corner is wet, slow down.
