Hey Guys and Gals,

Bling King has a WILBERS WESA 40mm  Lowering Suspension system for sale.
This system is the highest quality lowering system you can get for your F700GS. It comprises of the rear shock made 40mm lower in Germany. This marries to the BMW ESA system, so you have exactly the same functionality off the same switches.
In the front we fit shorter progressive WILBERS Springs along with reduction cartridges, which lowers the front end by 40mm to acheive the correct rake and trail, ensuring the handling geometry is correct.
The lowered side stand and main stand is included in this kit.
This complete kit is used but comes off a bike that only did 2500Kms with the lowered suspension in. It comes to you fully re-conditioned and carries a 2 Year Warranty

At the current rate the cost on this set is R 16 000.
It is on sale for R 7500.00

As usual it is quicker to contact us direct on 011 234 8161 or 082 450 8878 or sales@blingkingbikes.co.za

I've had the Desert rear fitted a couple of times, and its really quite an aggressive earth mover. I think its the best , and most aggressive tire in the market. In my opinion, its more aggressive than the Rallz. (See the pics attached) Still gave me around 5 thousand Kilos with some highway and city commuting thrown in as well.

But, I find the front Tractionator Adventure somewhat rigid and it tends to skid sideways under load. Mostly because of the stiff carcass, me thinks. Pro's, and con's...Tried to adjust tire pressure but the bouncy sideways surprises every now and then only improved slightly.

For the front, There's still nothing to beat TKC80, in my opinion. Yes its soft, but that allows it to grip on the tar stretches, and it performs lovely in sand and rocks.

I'm doing Kaokoland and Damaraland in May with Specialised Adventures. My tire choice: Tractionator Desert at the rear and TKC 80 in front.
Thanks for that. I have also heard good things about the Moto Z tyres and was thinking of putting on front and back for my Lesotho trip. Why do you not use the Moto Z for the front?

And also , what is the Moto Z like on fast tar. Lesotho is far and the people I ride with ride fast .

We were going to get new tyres just before the trip in March, but I am very reluctant to put on a tyre that I don't know just before a big trip.

I think I must get new tyres now to test them, and then if I like the Moto Z I can just get new ones for the trip and then use my used ones again after the trip.  A friend got the Rally for his GS 1200 and likes it a lot.

I was thinking front and back though.

Yes I loved the TKC' s front and back on my GS 1200 but have't tried that on the 990.  On the 990 I have had scorpions, but not that happy with them.

For some reason the front Tractionator Rallz and Desert has a tendency to bounce out of line or slide on hard packed gravel, when you don't expect it. Granted, as a rule, it's usually loaded and at speed. 
I think its because of the stiff carcass construction. I've deflated it, and then the surprises are less frequent and smaller... still gets your attention. In sand and mud, though, it's traction abilities are amazing.
...and yes... its a noisy bitch on tar that enjoys a head shake at around 160km/h. But hey, its like your Matric dance... just join in on the right beat, and swing along, or... go slower. It is an aggressive knobbly, after all.

Will be seeing you on the same trip in May :thumleft:  I am still figuring out (amongst other things) what my tire setup will be, your combo sounds like the bomb.

Looking forward to it!!

Tried that one riding in Tonteldoos
After careful consideration, Iíve decided to not attempt that trick again.....

Always good to walk away unharmed from a scorpion ...............  :thumleft: :biggrin: :biggrin:
