Tyres and Wheels / Metzeler Tourance Next vs Street
« on: May 01, 2021, 10:29:18 AM »
Anyone got the Tourance Next or Metzeler Street 2 tyres on their 850? I am interested to hear your opinion on what they are like.

I had the same issue with the speed limit indication on the TFT with the App set to “when using.” Changed it to “always on” and now it works perfectly.

A couple of questions:
Does the Madstad come with the fittings and side wings?
Would you consider shipping to New Zealand?

I went for the Enduristan Monsoon 3 soft bags. No racks required but you will need the small heat shields for the exhaust. The heat shields are also an Enduristan product. Check out my pictures on the Panniers thread if interested.

My Enduristan Monsoon 3 panniers arrived. Did a quick install with the bags empty to see what they look like. Very happy with the quality of the bags. Easy and quick to install. I don’t have racks so have the Inferno heat shields to protect the bag from the hot exhaust. I will chuck them on before using the bags. I added the Enduristan Tornado 51L bag for extra volume on long trips.

I decided to go with the Enduristan Monsoon 3 soft bags. I will upload some pictures when they arrive. I have added the heat shields for the exhaust pipe so I don't need side racks. Hopefully it will work.

I would appreciate some advise from those that have already installed risers. The only reason I want them is for a more comfortable stance when standing up on the pegs. Is there any advantage to going with the option that moves the bars back as well?

I found one on Ali that has a selection for either 750GS or 850GS. It would be interesting to see if the 850 version is correct.

Danic did you have any issues with cable lengths on your 850gs during the installation? I have the same bike.

Anyone bought the bar extenders from AliExpress? Any issues and what size did you go for?
