Aye m8, 'tis a big & heavy tyre, had to try it for fit, not as much clearance as I'd like, we'll see eh. If it doesn't work I'll fit a MT21 same as front.

Best New Year wishes to you & all here.

Out for a check run today 55 mile bimble for lunch up at Ladybower ressie, all fine, tyre not touched anywhere. Those big kbobbles feel a tad wobbly on road, be ok when they're worn in. Corners ok, just need get rid of the chicken strips, ha. Now I have good brakes both ends, makes for a quicker ride.

See in that pic below, the rubber section (top left) that keeps crud off the rear shock, is that a stock part, I can't see it on Fowlers parts list or else I'm looking in wrong sections. Not sure how long it should be, is mine worn away, should it reach down further?

Mine sits just even with the lower shock bolt and is just a piece of rubber about 1/8" thick.

Thanks for looking & reply, that's it, mine must be worn away a bit, I'd fit a new one if I could find it in parts list, if only to help preserve the rubber cover on bottom of shock.

Looks to have a couple of moulded in pips from what I can see, that secure it. S'pose a bit of old inner tube would do the job if I can't get an original.

Finish up pretty much rebuilding the whole bike.


The above is my opinion. Your mileage may vary.
1994/2001 custom built XT225 with a ton of aftermarket parts.
