Slippery Rear Tire (Galfer, AFAM, or Gas)
Man-o-man, I am having problems speeding up and slowing down.
Part of my problem is that I made a lot changes at one time. I added Galfer lines (rear too), a 40T sprocket, and I saturated the tire with gas a month ago on my first test ride (under tank pressure fitting blew off).
I now find that I am spinning the rear tire a lot and at low speeds I'm almost always locking up the rear wheel.
Anywho, can you glaze a tire with gas (I've scrubbed it twice), and/or do the Galfer lines really take that much feeling out of the rear brake, and/or does a 40T sprocket really give you that much more grunt (significant change I agree, but enough to spin the back)?
**I have 4k on the O.E. Dunlops
Any takers on this one?
Dress for the slide & not the ride
