Motorbike tyre care is very important one. When you are travelling long distance or used to travel in the night time. When you are buying a new motorcycle it can be selected with tubeless tyre or with tyre and tube (standard) models. Tubeless tyre is little expensive than the standard tube and tyre. Most of the brand new motorbikes that are coming with alloy wheels used to have tubeless tyre provided to them. Wide tubeless tyre is for good braking power and if there is a puncture occurs it will take long time to go flat. All ways fill air according to the recommended pressure by the motorcycle/Tyre manufacturer. Front wheel air pressure is lesser than the rear tyre. Air Pressure details can be seen on the chain cover or near to it in the motorbike. Meanwhile you can refer to the motorcycle user guide. Recommended amount of air pressure in the tyre will give you fuel efficiency and will save you money on fuel expenses. With recommended air pressure you can control the bike easily on any bad condition roads. If it is more or less than the recommended air pressure, your fuel efficiency will be lost while maneuvering it too will be difficult.
Due to Corona Virus spreading, many countries don't allow motorcycles to be on the roads. In this case the motorcycles have chances to get their Tyre to be get damaged. So the motorcycle must be stored with fork stands that will protect the tyre getting touch with the weight of the whole motorcycle. So there is less chance for the tyre to get damaged.
How the Tubeless tyre helps the riders?
When a tubeless tyre got a patch it is a good idea to repair it with a "compound piece" with heat treatment.
The repairman will fill the air and will find and mark the leaking point.
He will remove the tyre from the wheel.
Clean the marked area.
Then will place the compound piece ( a soft rubber piece) inside of the tubeless tyre on the hole.
Then carefully give heat treatment for about 5 - 10 minutes.
Once the work is over he will apply some sealant liquid around the wheel and then will fit the tyre and fill with air.
If you had a patch on a tube, be aware running at high speed for some hours will give the chance for air leak from that place due to heat produced by the tyre.
If you travel long distance, then don't use patched tube. Instead replace it with a new one.
When repairing the front tyre of a motorcycle with Disc Brake, stay there with the repairman. Some stupid people may hit and damage the Hydraulic Braking system, when putting back the tire.
When filling air, fill it with perfect air pressure. If higher than the recommended pressure old tubeless tyres may develop small cracks on it surface and can lose air slowly.
When running on newly laid roads, be careful as the oil on the surface may not help you to sudden brake. It will also slippery at the bends and you may skid from the road.
If happened to see a nail or sharp object stuck in the tyre, don't try to remove it, when air pressure is there. First reduce the air pressure and then try to remove it.
