I've used them for other items, never tires before.




do you already use something to correct your speedo or have you ever checked to see just how accurate your speedo is or isn't? A REAR tire diameter change will alter your speedo. If that matters, is up to the individual. Heck, the speedo will will be altered to some small degree as a new rear tire (oem or otherwise) wears and it's diameter changes. Most people don't care about that small change. My speedo was off by 6+ % so I corrected it with an aftermath product, others just live with it if their speedo is off and adapt.




kinda like the 2424 build date, that would make a tire good for one hell of a long time into the future!
I have a Garmin GPS mounted on my left handle bar that gives the actual speed. I have had it mounted when OEM tires were installed and the bike display was off by 5-7 mph at the higher speeds.

Did not know this at first. No wonder it took so look to make those trips to Tennessee!:mrgreen::mrgreen:

I recall you joining the board before the ownership of a Rune,correct me if I'm wrong.....is the milestone for you or for the Rune?? When you bought it what was the mileage. Whats the mileage on that other bike? Did you buy it new? Whats its mileage? Funny I watched my second Rune turn 34000 2day,294 miles 2day! Same or more tomorrow. Ride safe all!

Hmmmm....this EXACT post was made by Dog back in APRIL of 2010....a decade ago. It is found early on in this thread......and repeated here:

Rune had 2112 miles the day I got it, and after today I have put over 900 miles on it! Pretty cool huh?

Now that its no longer icy and cold, I can finally put the skiis and snow shoes away and put miles on my Rune!
Now a new user who joined TODAY....fpoowks....uses that same post again a decade later? What is the point? The first reply to this post a decade ago clearly answered the question 10 years ago...he bought it used with 2112 miles on it. ALL the miles he has put on it since....are his miles.

A very strange....puzzling....(maybe even kind of bewildering or inappropriate?) post ....indeed..................

Perhaps it's a SERIOUS language barrier?

:22yikes: when we stated we needed more traffic to avoid disappearing again ... I'm not sure this is what we meant. :banghead:
Speaking to the "more traffic" point; hosts of Sites like "ours" get their income from advertisers. Advertisers pay hosts for eyeballs.

My new (personal) plan is to at least open and glance at all ads presented by our hosts.

You all should do exactly as you wish...

Having also recently purchased a Rune, and joined this group, I have started to look through posts. I probably, if I was curious, have asked a similar question, rather than read through 6 pages of posts, so cut us newbies a little slack, please???

That being said, bought my Rune in November, and have already put 600+ miles on it. It had less than 2500 miles on it when I got it. (2005 model). Love the Rune, they are meant to be ridden, not stared at.

Ride safe, and enjoy!!

oh i have ZERO problem with someone asking a question that has been answered before.....but what I found QUITE curious (in fact even suspicious), is when someone goes to the trouble to scan all the way back through an old post....and quote the exact text of an earlier post.....again like this individual did (when the same EXACT question was already asked long ago). That's more than just odd. And an IP that tracks to Ukraine.....also kind of suspicious. I'm just doing my job as Admin and doing my due diligence... sniffing out possible trouble. That same individual did something similar on another post. I replied to it.....they never replied back.

Again, things that make you go "uh"?

Repeat or old questions....no problem....ask away. :yes:

Part of the reason I started this thread was because "back in the days" people made fun of those that didn't ride the same as they did ( either little or a lot)…..
It's like someone telling me how I should I cook my own steak...:roll:

And, I had to think about it, since I've owned it, only about 5 miles was not put on by me.
