  1. Man thank you so much!!!!!!!
  2. I didn’t realize you have to remove the control board and all that other stuff. I also didn’t realize I would have to have silicone things. I’m an idiot. I should’ve just sent this thing to Jason. Thanks man.
  3. The tire change part I’m not too worried about. It’s the getting it out of the machine I’m concerned about or more importantly getting it back into the machine. Lol Thanks!!!
  4. Yea they know. Sorry about the side subject in this thread.
  5. Thanks but that’s for the 16 X I need instructions for the Nikola Plus
  6. What I specifically need is a detailed step by step how to get to the point of pulling the tire out, changing the tire (although there are already videos on that), reinstalling the tire into the shell and putting it back together. I’ll pay $100 for that. :-) I love this Nik+. I’ll change tires multiple times if need be to find the one that’s perfect for it. Let me know. I’ll need it by next Saturday/Sunday.
  7. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073RQB3H2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 This is what I got. Jason recommended these and says his guys use them. My biggest concern is I don’t unhook wires or take screws out I don’t need to. I guarantee you I can take anything on the planet apart. Putting it back together, now that’s a different story. LOL
  8. Portland Maine!!!! How are you? I’m from Maine. I have family in Portland. I’d love to hear what people think of EUC’s up there. Course the weather is only nice there two weeks out of the year so you must get a lot of riding in during that two weeks. :-)
  9. I’m not sure but I think you hurt my feelings. Lol
  10. Well poop. There is a video of complete disassembly but I’m sure you don’t have to go through anywhere near all of that to change the tire. What if I PayPal you a hundo? :-)
  11. That’s not what I meant. However I’m not sure you realize that. Lol
  12. IDK. I think this whole “gyro” feeling on the CX is not nearly as apparent to me as it appears to be to some. It less then a 1/10th what the Z10 feels like. Also the CST is definitely more nimble at lower speeds like 3-10MPH but after that the CX is just as nimble for me and more importantly much more stable translating into a more relaxing and comfortable ride then the CST. I only own one CYT and that is on my MSX. That’s an 18” tire though. Not sure if the tread is the same as the 16” CYT’s some of you guys are getting for your 16X’s. But I can hit 31MPH and be very stable on my MSX with the CYT on it. I hope the CX is the answer to my Nik+. I only sold my 84V Nikola for the 100V so I could try 40MPH now and then. So far I haven’t even hit 30MPH more then once and that scared the crap out of me. Maybe your right Chris and stabilization only really kicks in on the CST after 31MPH. All I know is that I’m not willing to find out. If the CX doesn’t make my Nik+ ride stable at higher speeds like my 16X I will sell it for a loss and call it a day. I really hope it works because the Nik+ is a beautiful wheel.
  13. Hey if you change the Nikola tire before next weekend would you please video it??? :-)
  14. I guarantee you’ll love how it rides. Let’s just hope you don’t experience any problems. Marty‘s list was quite accurate unfortunately. Fortunately what’s on his list hasn’t affected everyone.
  15. Ah yes that must be it. You’re a right nice fella aren’t you? um..... I own more Gotways then KS. But don’t let that stop you from taking shots. You do realize you just proved my point right? :-)
  16. No man no language barrier. You’ve been pretty hard on the 16X. That’s OK though because it probably deserves some criticism.
  17. Know that I am fully counting on the CX tire I ordered to completely change how I feel about the Nikola Plus. I believe it will fix the problem if not I will be selling it. It’s very smooth up to 25 mph now. Of course the tire was out of balance just like my previous Nikola. But the good people here showed me how to make it better by deflating it and reseating it. It fixed about 80% of the bounce just like it did with my last one. Now I just need to eliminate the wobbles. I love how some just chime in saying it’s me the rider that’s the problem and that’s fine but I have no problem going that fast on all my other wheels including my previous Nikola. Well that went 31mph and I went that fast on it all the time. But even with that Nikola it was nowhere near as stable as the 16X IMHO. So I’m hoping the reason is the tire. I really like the CX. I also really like the Nik+. It’s a beautiful looking wheel and very comfortable. So probably next Sunday I will attempt to change the tire. Pray for me as I have no idea what I’m doing. LOL
  18. It’s by far the best riding wheel I own and I have the 18XL, Nik+ and MSX. For me 2nd place is a distant 2nd.
  19. Great pictures. Nice cleanup. I’m too new at this to know any better but is dust getting in there like that normal for a wheel?
  20. I can drive my car with the seat adjustments in any position. However I do adjust it to the most comfortable position for me. I assume 99.9999% of other drivers do the same.
  21. I’m thinking the new tire will make all the difference in the world. I actually adjusted the one on it now because it was so out of balance and it helped a little. I still don’t feel safe on it past 26 mph or so. To me the 16X is remarkably more stable and smoother.
  22. This thread gets more painful by the day. Now I see why Jason is so busy answering emails.
