Sikk 110 now has 12's! - December 24, 2007, 12:21 PM

Ok, so I put a supermoto tire on the front and rear with the rear being upgraded to a 12 inch.

The handling is MUCH different, it actually feels more like a real bike than a pitbike if that makes sense. Mainly it doesn't turn in quite as fast yet feels a lot more stable.

The tires are a Q-ing??? They are a pavement profile tire and I took the bike out to a parking lot to scrub them in and they did not slip once. Now I wasn't pushing them as hard as I could but I wasn't exactly coasting either so I'm pretty impressed.

I'm hoping they'll work well at All-Sport but I know for pavement they are great! I think if they heat up they'll be fine...although this time I managed to get them scrubbed in a little so that should help.

Now, I had a bit of a scare because one of my rims needed to be trued pretty badly and I wasn't sure if I would get it to the point where the bike would feel smooth. I tightened up the spokes and worked on the area where the rim was out of true and I must have gotten it close enough because the bike felt very nice. I honestly expected it to shake but it felt pretty good.

I put 30psi front and rear so I guess I'll adjust if need be but if it hooks like it did in the parking lot at All-Sport I'm set

See everyone Sunday at All-Sport!

Nah...if these tires work...and I think they will...just like the first time when my knobbies scrubbed in I won't have problems at all keeping up if not passing.

Last time I had so many issues I just didn't want to hold people up...just not how I roll...

I think these will work well and after taking them out in parking lot I'm very please with the handling and tires so we'll see.

I think the reason I had issues with that other front was due to the fact that I didn't get a chance to scrub it in. As you can tell from the pics, I have these scrubbed in a little so we'll see...either way I'm sure it will be an improvement over last time...you know I wasn't running as fast as I was the first time out and I was pushing harder

I bought a rear rim, the Sikk I bought ($700 new) came with a 12 inch front so the rear 12-inch rim + F/R tires came out to $134.

PM if you want a Sikk 110cc for $700 brand new, there's a guy on Ebay from PA selling them which is where I got mine from.

Sweet!! As for psi isn't that kinda high? Rick told me to run about 16 psi on a XR100. I got the bike and did some tuning up on it so I am ready!

Not really, I added the hand guards, tires, and rear rim. The bike already comes with the upgraded exhaust and intake so there wasn't much I needed to do.

My bike is dead even with the KLX 110cc and most 125's...so for now I won't change much other than put parts to make it more crash proof.

I ran a higher PSI at All-Sport last time and it actually helped. Kinda depends on the surface, each weekend it changes so sometimes going low helps...other times you have to add air.

Chris on the 125 with 12's and similar tire told me to run 30psi so I'll try that.

Just out in the parking lot I couldn't even get the front to push so it should be a good starting point.

Of course, it depends on what tires you're running...I think the trial tires run lower PSI than the supermoto tires.

fack...this thing is crazy...not even opened up GPS had 45mph. Although, I hit a bump and got some headshake...normally not a big deal but I didn't have a helmet on so that was a little freaky

I got the bike all the way over and if I don't look down this bike feels exactly like the big bikes.

Tires are scrubbed in...now I just have to cross my fingers that they work on smooth cement because on pavement they are sick!



Anyone looking for tires check out Q-DIN tires
