    Stans

    Is anyone else using Stans on their Jekyll? I just set my 800 up with Stans last weekend after getting a pinch flat. My first ride on the bike was yesterday at the same trail. I could tell a difference going uphill, I was faster. I am running just under 40psi. I think the back feels a little squishy, I might have to put more air in the shock. I weigh 175 and have my shock at 160. If you are using Stans what kind of setup are you using? I am using Contenintal Explorer on the back and Panaracer Mach SS on the front.

    Thanks,

    Gripshift

    I run an additional 5 pounds of pressure in the tires for Stans setups. The tires still grab and feel plush, and rolls better with the extra pressure.

    If you get like a nail threw your tire and the stans seals it is it still a god idea to replace the tire?

    Stans seals small punctures

    I've seen guys w/ Stans ride their tires for a long time after getting small punctures. It seals them right up.

    Right on, that's the point of Stans. Check out the video on Stans website.
