Pot stirring topic: I know it's not enough to ever notice, but do you suppose the 240 is slower than a 210?
Pot stirring topic I know it s not enough to ever notice but do you suppose...
I drop mine low because I can :) pshhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! I ride at a normal height.
It's actually faster. The 210 is quicker if you look at gearing. The riding difference is night n day. 210 rides fine but the 240 makes it feel like a sport bike in turns. Most noticable riding 2 up.
Thats like saying synthetic is faster than reg oil. There are pros and cons to everything. Mines faster cuz its red, not because i have a 240...lol
I'm just talking about speed, not handling. The bike obviously has the power, but I'm wondering if the 210 makes the bike a hair faster cuz it's easier for the bike to turn, being shorter and lighter. Again, we're probably talking hundredths of a second in a quarter mile, but I'm curious
Didn't notice any real change in performance or mileage if thats the question but it makes a noticeable difference in handling. Definitely worth the change. If you follow the tire posts you will see that repeated by everyone thats run the 240.
I've hit 135 with more to go with a 250
That's the bike not the tire
I agree with Mike Stanhouse here. Love the sport bike feel to it now. Only one problem riding 2 up...Tuck your wires in along the side before you venture out!!! Or you will become a member of the "big fat tire ate my wiring Job" club, lols. Love the 240. I hang with sport bikes all day long till about 150 on straight aways
I joined that club on a trip to Portugal last summer lol but wouldn't go back to a 210
