  2. Tubeless tyre's

    Africa Twin
    Made a boo boo and bought a tubeless rear tyre. I've always fitted my own but they've all been tubed tyres. This one is especially ridged and i reckon could be a bit of a bugger to get on. Anyone with any experience of fitting tubeless tyres ? Cheers Bob.

  7. Tubed tyres and punctures - Is there a good product that works?

    Africa Twin
    My last bike (600 Alp) and my new AT both have tubed tyres, and it was always in the back of my mind "What happens if I get a puncture?" I've literally no idea how to change the inner tubes, even though I must have watched a dozen You Tube Videos on 'how-to'. Plus, I really dont fancy the...
  8. Tyres, RD04

    Africa Twin
    Sorry for bringing up what I'm sure is an Old Cheshnut for many ;), but I could do with some advice: I'm about to fit new tyres (RD04) before a 3-week trip to Morocco. That said, most of the riding will be on tarmac, rather than off-road. The advice I've had is Heidenau K60s, but I see that...
  9. Please, not a tyre thread!

    Dominator / FMX
    It's nearly time to get new tyres for my Dommie. No idea how long the current BT-45s have been on there (I've done 7,000 miles on them) but they're well worn now. What's the weapon of choice for road-going inner-tubed Dommies these days? The Bridgies are ok, if a little squirmy going across...
  10. Tubeless Tourance?

    Africa Twin
    Need some new rubber, currently running Tourance with tubes Rang around for some quotes and am being told that you can only get the 90/90/21 for tubed application now, and the 140/80/17 needs to be tubeless? I'm confused - can I still run a tube in a tubeless rear Tourance? Thanks.............Sam

  15. Not for highway use? Say what?

    Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    So I bought a new inner tube for my rear -- the LBS assured and reassured me it would be good for my 140 tires, even though the package said 4.5-4.75 (Chen Shing). However after prying the old megastiff tubeless K60 from and preparing for mounting the new ultrastiffer K60 I noticed the tube had...
