Was a little excited to get a package today. A couple of weeks ago a fellow member (Thanks Jeff) sent me a pm with a pair of weights forsale on another forum. I got in contact with the seller and was the winner of them (first guy to respond). Sent a check off and he shipped them to me last night from Illinois, gotta love SpeeDee cheap and 1 day service.

So now the 1050 won't be going straight all the time when turning with the tiller on :D The one thing I don't know forsure is can you just flip the rim around to putn the valve stem on the inside to mount the weight? I haven't paid attention if the hub is the same size to mount the dust cover back on when I've had the wheels off.

Nice find

Yes, the rims can go either direction

I had to do that with the 800 as I have the chrome hubcaps installed :D

Very nice.  I have never heard of Speedee.  Cheap and overnight.  Great combo.

 

I just googled them.  Seems like a good regional service.  

 

Nice looking weights.

I have never heard of Speedee either.  They might be worth checking into.

They only do an 8 state area, I think, but want to keep expanding. Would be nice if they could so everybody can have the benefits of cheaper shipping.

It's fun when your on 94 early in the morning and 10-12 of those are all grouped together heading for the cities. Not a bug in site behind them.

There's one that goes by on the highway past me heading to St. Cloud at 11:15 or so. You can almost set your watch to their schedule.
