Snap?!!!, what the new tensioners?, old tensioners?, chain itself?
It’s hard to say when your on the other end of the phone and they’re talking to their mechanics. They were either talking about the cam chain or the tensioner if that’s possible

I hope their putting a 2019 one on for me

Anyone tried the MotoZ Rallz on a 701/690?

I'm looking for a tyre that'll manage 2.5K miles and be good in a variety of conditions off road, I currently use the Mitas MC23 and it'll do 2K but I'm not sure it'll manage much more.
I'm not interested in the Mitas E07 or K60 etc.

I have done 2.5k on a set of razorbacks from 24mx for 55 quid a pair. The only issue I had on them was small well rocks where the front felt a bit sloppy. The rear out lasted the front until I got a nail through it this week

I was going to try them after you mentioned them in another thread, but they seem to no longer stock a 140/80 rear

Are those Razorback front bi directional like the MT21?
