My SV that is. Im out in the garage this morning just poking around and staring at her beauty, and wiping her down a little.


Then I thought Id ask a few questions.

#1 How close is this tire to the end?

Im new enough to motor-biking that Ive never changed the tires on my bike. I also turn left to much.


#2 How dirty is this chain considered to be?

My first bike was shaft driven so I never thought twice about it. Is this really dirty or no need to clean it just yet?


Thanks everyone!

General rule of thumb if you can stick a penny lincoln upsidedown into a groove and see the top of lincoln's head, its time to start looking for new tires.

Chain could do with some cleaning. Lube more than anything though.

the chain could use a good cleaning and some spray wax stuff or some form of lube. but doesnt look terrible in my opinion

the tire probably has a few hundred more miles left in it, probably a bit tricky in the rain i would think but thats fun,
