i agree with full protection 100% but i just like wearing jeans. someday i will get actual pants.

you could scuff up the rear tire a little bit, it wont hurt at all, but if you driving it home be carful, it is new. i had to drive mine home the day i bought it and it started to drizzle going down the highway and i was like o shiot im screwed but luckly i got it home ok.

Dont use sandpaper, just be careful while running in the new tire. REMEMBER that it is new and you have to take it easy for a bit and youll be fine.

if anythign try a scuff pad. but either way still be easy on them for the first 50-100 miles. your ride home will wear the center pretty good i would only scuff up the edges. actually i would probably jsut get them nice and hot and sticky and lean it over.

well it must have not been to bad because the guy was cool and dident charge me extra or even mention it??!


also it is not easier it is very easy to tel that it is harder to slow with the bigger tire i dident think i would notice it!!??? also it might just be because it is new but the tire lockes up way to easy i dont even really use the back at all now unless i have to

Yeah, it must be because it's new because a larger sized tire... would mean a large touch patch and therefor easier braking.

Remember to keep it cool for about a week or two.. depending on how many miles you get it...
