Bummer 😢 The standard rod hasnt got the threaded bar that urs does.
Looks like I'm needing the Lust Racing version after all. 😂

Steve, i think you mentioned in another post that you had seen the rod from Lust available on ebay.
If you still have it could you share the ebay web link please.

Got it from Lust the other day.
Fitted and setup its length as per instructions and now, ... i too can touch the ground better  :047:.
Very happy with the result.
It's definitely worth having both the dogbones and also the sensor's adjustable rod fitted together.

Heyyyy! Glad you got it sorted. Makes a lot of difference to my confidence. There's a lot of single track roads hereabouts - when you need to stop promptly and the Tarmac is a bit sketchy, that's when getting that extra 20mm of foot down counts.

I was planing on ordering an xrx low in black but when i spec'd it with the extras i wanted it was costing nearly as much as the xrt.
But the xrt still had way more extras even still and now it was similar price to my version of the xrx low.
So economically the xrx low wasn't a good idea for me if it spec'd up that close money wise to the top model.
I just went for the xrt and spent another few bob on a low seat and a lowering kit.

Yeah, I know. But I had ferry to catch last August and once the Tex bug had bit, i couldn't wait for a Low. Still, all sorted now.

The combination or new PR4 tyres, lowering, and the weight of the upper bars has made this bike perfectly balanced and manageable. I went to a funeral this morning through the rush hour and I was riding at less than walking pace very happily (no, not part of the cortège).

The new PR4 tyres...
Did you have tourance next tyres before these?
Just wondering as on my 2018 the tourance next tyres seem to make a sort of resonance noise, maybe it's echoing through the front mudgaurd but I'm not sure exactly where from.
It just seems to echo coming up from below my handlebars.
Can you compare? That is of course if you've had tourance and then switched to pr4?

I went from Tourance Next to PR4's. What a difference, no more tyre noise, so much smoother, so much more grip! The Tourance's were good whilst they lasted (my front tyre was completely foobar at 4250 miles - one of "that batch" of tyres that do that from Metzler).

If you mainly do road riding rather than offroad then you'd have to go some way to beat the PR4 Trail's IMO (although will be interesting to test the PR5 Trails (are they released yet?))

I'd probably do pretty much 100% road so maybe they'd suit me better.
I'll be doing maybe 4000 ish miles over the bext few weeks to italy n back so maybe I'd need new rubber after that.
They are called a Pilot Road 4 Trail yeah?
Does the trail signature imply some sort of small crossover percentage of maybe gravel use is implied i wonder?
But the quieter ride you mention definitely has got my attention.
