RSX850i in Australia
Thanks for allowing me to join the forum. I have had an RSX850i for about 12 months. I use it to go gold prospecting with and it has to cop some really rugged country but so far has handled everything thrown at it in very rocky terrain. I have rarely had the opportunity to really wind it up as far as speed goes. All the knowledge I have gained has been from this forum, there isn't much info here. Tyres, rims etc are difficult to find except if one is prepared to pay JD obscene amounts. With the help of this forum I have bought a spare steel rim & a new drive belt from the US. Far cheaper even with freight. I was actually looking at a Kumho road venture 27x 8.5 x r14 tyre that seems be the right dimensions for the front because of the price of 14" tyres here. Any thoughts on how they might go? Is it possible to run the same width tyre all round? I am also trying to find some photos of a drive belt being changed.
Enough for now. Thanks for all the help
