    Ah, Terrible Twins! Lovely pair of GTSs... Clap emoticon

    Hope he got a good deal? I see some Uk dealers doing £300+ off list on new 300s, bringing prices down to £3700 IIRC.

    Great start to summer 8)

    You guys going to pop up on any of these?

      So does anyone know whether the tire rotation is correct or incorrect?

      There should be a rotation arrow on the tyre wall or a front/back indicator. If they are Michelin City Grips or similar this past thread should help

      New Michelin city grip directional installation - question

      Personally I think they're fine on both bikes, especially if fitted from new. Sometimes a modern tyre tread looks counter-intuitive - we assume they're designed to displace water out (left and right) or to the rear but modern patterns are now designed to do this in a whole number of ways.

      Rear tyre rotation direction is the opposite from the front tyre rotation direction? I think you should check the tyre rotation

      Fuel up
