The tyres that came with the 900ss were, to put it mildly, shite. I never had any confidence in them and I swore that as soon as the warmer weather arrived I’d get something decent on the bike. I was all set to try the Maxxis Supermaxx for looks, some good feedback from a mate and for budget reasons.
I popped in on my way in to work one morning and bumped into an old colleague who quickly put me off the Maxxis and pushed me in the direction of the Michelin Pilot Road 3s. I’m glad he, and the guys at FWR, persuaded me to do so as they’ve given me a new found confidence in all conditions and especially corners where the outgoing BT020s gave me the willies big time.
To cut a long story short, they guys fitted my tyres and sent me on my way but they’d not tightened up the speedo mount in the hub and it ripped the cable from the back of the speedo mount and snapped the cable by the hub. It was an easy mistake to make, but I was really impressed with how they bent over backwards to fix it and get it back to me asap. They have the sort of service you hope to find in a garage but so frequently don’t.
I shall be a repeat customer.
