How much slower do you find the acceleration?

Is that a larger front tire? Give us an update. If they're good I'll do the same when I need a change.

Looks great. Those big tires are an improvement. The stock tires are way too spindly.

My Wolf runs on regular fuel ... runs good on mid-grade (89) .... and runs great on premium (91)

I agree, don't add chemicals to bad gas - dump it and get good fuel.
I regularly add a little fuel injector cleaner in the gas and about 400:1 ratio 2 cycle oil in the gas (1oz/tank)
Hey pa, do you think the ethanol in the gas these days is damaging the engine?

Hey amholla3,

eBay has some great stuff if you are after the cafe racer look.

You will need your measurements. I just ordered the classic vintage seat so when it gets here I would be happy add the seat measurements to this thread. Hopefully you can get the measurements before than.

Welcome to the pack.

Would you post a pic when you can? If you can figure out how to post a pic? It's notoriously difficult for some of us.  :o

I have a Seven Zero Seven Vendetta 3 full face helmet with a built-in shade visor I can drop down with a handy switch on the side of the shell. That with a no-fog, photochromatic stick-on shield works pretty well for the sun.  Those west coast sunsets can be brutal.
They are brutal. The other day I was riding the opposite direction from the sunset and I heard a car accident behind me. The sound of the impact and metal crunching and I knew why it happened. Someone was driving into the sunset and and collided with another car. There's a glare that comes of the pavement that makes matters worse so putting down the cars visor is only a little effective.

Anyways, good suggestions everyone, but if a pair of sunglasses and a tinted visor isn't cutting it the best coarse of action is to be riding in the opposite direction or park it for an hour or so. Being blind in traffic is scary as Sh#t.

Jeez, this year I had to ride right into the sun on a few occasions. Today was the worse. I had both a tinted visor and sunglasses on and still had to pull over. I made my way slowly forward and made a right turn into a residential area to make switchbacks through suburbia only to pop-out onto the main road with the sun directly in my eyes again and in traffic! It's been a few hours and I still have something like welders flash.

Thanks cam. Hand made? Odd that someone would bother for an economy oriented bike? Oh well.

Has anyone bough the stainless steel exhaust cover for the pea shooter exhaust? If so, what did it cost? For those unfamiliar it's a exact copy of the plastic one on you bike but stainless.

That looks so comfortable, but I'll stick with clip-ons. I will suffer for my art. ::)

There's a tread wear indicator? I did not know that.

Third owner and the only issue I ever had was the dreaded clutch cable and I replaced the battery. Who's got what mileage? Who's the highest?

That's great. Here's what the dealer doesn't know. There's a small flaw in the clutch lever that causes the cable to break. Grease up that cable and housing before it breaks and really spoils an afternoon. Other than that the little bike is a gem. The rest is normal maintenance for a small bike.

You're the second owner that had problems immediately off the show room floor. I don't know how a bike that's known for being a basic and bullet proof - manufactured by company that been banging them out for years under the SYM badge and when licenced under Honda would have problems other than it wasn't prepped correctly by the dealer. Have them pick it up and prep it properly. Ridiculous.
