Thread: Flat tires

    Re: Flat tires

    Nowadays most motorcycle tires are tubeless, if you do have a tube in it, most likely "plugger liquids" won't seal it anyway because the tire and the tube are flexing. As I understand it, most tire shops don't like the liquids because they make a mess and also if you have a tire pressure monitoring system, it may ruin it. YMMV

    Ride-on.com sells a good sealer that is motorcycle shop friendly, but you are correct about the TPMs systems. Myself, I have a Michelin Alpin R/F on my bike. Unfortunately don't make them anymore.

    NO such thing as a "car tire" either. Passenger tire, truck tire or motorcycle tire.

    That is if we are getting into "correct names."

    I missed the Blackwater Falls camp-out last year when my back tire went out and I dumped the bike with the trailer. Too dumb to get hurt bad, walked away with just a torn jacket and arm.
