This weekend, some friends and I are going to be headed out onto the ice. Equipped with a 4-wheeler and a plow, we'll be making ourselves a race track, and doing a little ice racing!

Below are the tires for my 2008 Honda CBR 1000RR codenamed "Cocaine". Here are some pics... ((some hosted on facebook))

First of all, my bike <3

Tonight, I'll actually get the wheels ON the bike and load the bike into the truck. Tomorrow I go to work, and straight afterward, I head up north to stay at the cabin. Lots of pics and video from this weekend I'm sure. If there's enough interest, I'll make sure to get them posted biglaugh.gif

I just bought an 09 ZX6R last night. I figured I would have to wait 3 months to ride it, but maybe i'll do this. haha jkjk that looks like a bike death would ride coming after you with those nails through the tire.

Washer on the inside, plus probably some run-flat green stuff to help seal. Don't need a ton of air pressure anyway on the ice.

Interesting to see the screw facing outside - all the studs I've seen have all been just the heads, with the screw going into the tire (and no washers anywhere).

i see that being potentially very hazardous. i hope that both you and that bike make it through all that ok. i feel thats a bit too much studding and you won't be able to maneuver your bike well at all. good luck.

yeah the screws facing out look a little sketchy.
But I've never ridden a motorcycle on ice.

A lot of ice studs, like Kold Kutters, are designed to go into the thick rubber knobs on a dirt tire. Because I've got a thin layer of street rubber, a different setup is needed.

My front tire is air tight, my rear tire is slow leaking. I'll throw some green tire-slime in it when I get it on the ice.

Bike is studded up, loaded up, and ready to rock! Pics and video next week when I get back :)

No need for loctite. The nuts are fine thread, the bolts are coarse thread. They're literally stripped on, and are not coming off. And if they do, loctite won't save em icon_smile.gif

Actually, it's more like an ice auger. It'll cut through 8" of ice in about 4 seconds.
