If you mean the high speed issues with some (but not all) C5's I am pretty sure that was tracked down to the nylon bush the C5 uses in the swing arm. If you have that issue the fix is to replace the nylon bush with a brass one, you can buy adapter kits.
All said, the C5 is a great bike....unique styling and fun handling!
I've seen some people are using what looks like a 3.50 tire on the bullet classics and it seems to be a rear tire tread. I like the look. Anyone have experience with this?
Sorry, I didn't specify which bike I've got. I have the G5 which has the 19" wheels front and rear. I figured out the tires I'm talking about are the K70 which seem to have the same tread pattern front and rear. Looks like there's plenty of room under the front fender for a 3.50 tire.
I second Br. GlenF. Especially when there seems to be a K70 3.25-19 available either in the US as well as Europe. There are some people in the forum who did that change, though, with good results on the iron barrel. Theoretically using a 3.50 on the front should impair handling and hinder fast cornering.
