    Tire/fender clearance issues - I'd also check for fork twist, wheel bearings, and wind deflection, as well as tire growth at speed

    On my commando I could hear a droning noise Evey time I went above 90 mph
    All became clear when I noticed my fresh paint bubbling off my front mudguard
    I don't know exactly how much the tyre grows at speed but I'm guessing 10mm or so

    WM4 that is good. Running Avon AM26's ? it is tight even with the stock 850 SS fender and stays.
    I thought of splitting my GF Production racer fender down the middle and adding 3/8th inch material to the fender.
    Food for thought?
    maybe?
    cheers,
    Tom
