Tires for 1100 Custom
Okay, I know this is a loaded question and I have already done a bit of a search on the fourm, but I have to ask: what tires are best for the 1100 Custom? Dunlop are readily available at my local shop, but it also offers Pirelli and Metzler. If weight is a factor, I weigh in at 285, my wife is 120. I avoid rain as much as possible, but end up getting caught in it sometimes anyway. I ride 65% highway - 35% backroads, and not agressive at all.
Also, when I do get the rear tire replaced, should I have the shop service the tranny? What all is involved in that? I think I've read some things about lubriacting some splines...
