I'm going to run the 705 front with the General Exclaim UHP myself. I'm just currently wearing out whats left of a TKC80 rear that I put on to do some DS riding with and then the UHP is going on.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. So are you the first to try the General GMax AS-03 tires or have others tried that too?
BTW, how does the 17t front sprocket feel with that extra mass? I ran a 17 front on my 07 DL650 and although I loved the relaxed revs on the interstate, there were times you could really tell you were running the 17. The 17t front sprocket works great on the East Coast, but I found times on an out West trip the big headwinds or long inclines were really having me work the gear box to stay in the power range. I would imagine the CT amplifies that somewhat?
