    Wasnít hard at all. The guy cleaned the inside of the wheel with a wire brush and a little soap. About 75 lbs and it popped into place.

    The ride is pretty smooth and feels much softer on the CT. Itís feels different but not in a bad way. I think after a few miles it will just feel natural again.

    Wiz and I just had this conversation a few minutes ago. Keep us updated after a few rides. I have no intention of going back to a MC tire.

    After 2000 miles I think I got things working good. I had a little weaving issue at first at highway speeds but tightened up the steering head and that went away. I also just replaced the front with a E4. That may have added to the issue.

    Well when I thought I had things figured out, my wobble is back. I tightened up the steering head and things got better, but after a couple hundred miles it seems to be coming back. I checked my air gauge and it seems to be reading low. I will compare it it other gauges and see what happens. Anyone else have this problem?

    I didnít read back thru the whole post but have you checked swing arm bearings? I did mine before the Nexen because Iíd read a post about that issue. I tightened my head bearings too tight and it really kicked in the wobble behind big trucks and speeds over 85-90. I replaced the Head bearings this year and it has a whole new disposition now.
    I replaced the Nexen with another last week and swapped to the FJR pumpkin at the same time. Gotta be careful with the bugs in my teeth with all the smiling now.

    A number of folks here that ran a nexan had that same issue including me. So with a suggestion at the time to run 45psi, that is what I ran and it took care of that issue, so like Holy, somewhere between 45 and 50 is what I'd try.

    Not sure how to check swing arm bearings. Is it hard? There is a good chance my gauge reads low so I may not had quite 44 psi.
