    Mine were not cupping, I think they were just randomly delaminating... In all fairness, the first three fronts didn't do this, and this one had a lot of high speed two-up interstate miles

    After three sets of Shinko Ravens, I'm done. These dimples and several bubbles appeared on the front tire on our R1150RT after about 4k miles. Made for a bit of a scary ride home. After sending these...

    On center stand, sight glass full, everything's good to go. Once you can see a gap when it's on the sidestand, drop 8 oz. in. and do the oil dance if you must.

    This bikes use oil up to 20-25k,...

    Those aren't the proper type hose clamps. Worm clamps shouldn't be used for FI applications. Get the proper FI clamps from the auto parts store, or replace with OEM Oetiker clamps.
