    Had the same issue years ago on my /7.
    My fix was to drill and tap the plug (1/4-20) IIRC.
    Loctited a longer bolt/screw in the hole and then pulled up on it whilst unscrewing the plug.

    Eery situation is different and one size does not fit all.
    The best way to figure this out is to measure and adjust your suspension's "sag".

    Just Google it. Instructions are averywhere.

    AFAIK, Dunlop does not offer a proper airhead tire in the correct 3.25-18 and 4.00-18 sizes. They do have classic K70s in those sizes, but these were never airhead tires. So, to stay Dunlop, go to...

    Many riders also find that these machines handle best with original rather than larger tires.

    Avon AM26 RoadRiders in 3.25-19 amd 4.00-18 have proven very popular on Airheads. I'm getting near to 10K on mine and lots of tread left. Very stable feeling, too.

    Careful with this. While snowflakes will swap between years, wire spoked wheels from cycles with ATE calipers will not fit those with Brembo calipers. What you need are wheels from an R80ST.
