    Me too!

    I can vouch for the Super Streets - was wearing them when I crashed and I didn't even know that my right foot had impacted the ground till I examined the boots later. They had protected my toes very well, though they got scuffed badly.

    I had posted a short review on these boots with pics in the riding gears thread.

      @vishwas : I have faced similar issue on my p220 but its noticeable only when u leave the handlebar . Atleast 5-6 mechs checked and nobody cut resolve it after replicating the issue. The disc/alloy was not bent. The tyres were properly fit. The cone set had no issue neither the forks were bent. Oil seal for the left shocker was broken but I started ignoring the issue so dont know if that was the cause and fixing it resolved the issue . You might check that out on ur bike.
      Oil seals are fine.

          Yes, then I face the same issue as well. So does n_adtiya. To be honest, I would like to know more about it as well.

          Have you checked the swingarm alignment markers? Have been planning to do that but havent gotten around to it yet.

          • Well the bike is stable with both or even one hand on the handle bars. With both hands off and at low speeds like 50k's the handle bars shake quite a bit. I dont know if its an issue but could be due to road conditions, cross winds etc. but it doesnt hurt to get it checked out.

            will pop in to the SC on the weekend and have it looked into.

                I tried googling for it, most answers point to swingarm mis-alignment, worn out tyres, wheel bearings.

                Also, an interesting post on one of the forums,

                As soon as i saw the title to this topic i thought: Kawasaki. EVERY ZZR 250 and GPX250 i have ridden will shake the front wheel. Only happens when your slowing down and have let go of the handlebars. They will shake quite violently from side to side (like a mini-tankslapper) until you put your hands back on them. My advice: buy a honda or anything else cos you know you will be buying quality

                  rightly put. it feels exactly like a controlled tankslapper. I doubt if its an issue with bearings etc. cos then it would be a design issue and not just a manufacturing defect. Swingarm misalignment should be investigated and ruled out.

                    If you immerse them in water, water will get in but for riding through rains etc. Water gets in from air vents located on back of your ankle so while riding, water dosen't seep in and also the inner lining is not damaged by water.

                    Personally, I feel that they offer better protection than others pointed out by you.

                    Ultimately, it is a personal choice.

                          Ark tried fixing it himself but you need a jack to hold the engine in place since the main bolt goes through the engine mount. Better to get it done at the service center.

                          P.S. Hope you never get to test the effectiveness of these sliders.
