C14 tires
« on: December 11, 2008, 01:12:00 pm »
Hi all, I'm about to undertake my first tire change on my C14.I have changed motorcycle tires before.I've been told because I have a tire pressure sensor on the rim I need to have a shop change the tire.Is this true? I also need to change the battery for my rear tire pressure sensor, what size and kind do I need?  I read the thread on the C14 oem tires,I've been lucky I guess 'cause I've got 9k on mine and only need to replace the front tire for now.I found that odd I usually went through 2 rears to 1 front. This is my first kawasaki and I am very happy with it.The only downfall is having such a nice bike and I only ride to work!  Andrew

Its nice or kind of a shame that Fred got those videos out.  I have not decided which yet.  It is very helpful and I am sure he did a good job BUT It would have been nice to have the information available to COG members here on this site.  I would like to see all, for both bikes, tech info improved and avl for members if not everyone.  We do not have much on the C14 and now it is going to be hard to get since it is already for sale.   ----------------------------------  I will answer any question.  It is up to you to figure out if I should have.    <p align="left">My Photos<br
