Motorbike Tyre Care.

Motorbike tyre care is very important one when you are travelling long distance. When buying a new motorcycle it can be selected with tubeless tyre or with tyre and tube (standard). 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. Also motorcycle riders prefer wide tubeless tyre 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 manufacturer. Front wheel air pressure lesser than the rear tyre. The details can be seen in the chain cover or near to it. Also you can refer to the motorcycle user guide.
Recommended amount of air pressure in the tyre will give you fuel efficiency will save you money on fuel expenses.If it is more or less than the recommended air pressure, your fuel efficiency will be lost.

How the Tubeless tyre helps the riders?

  • Safe riding with them while less chance for accidents due to sudden air leakage. In this tyre, the air will leak slowly.
  • Light weight due to the absence of tube thus the fuel usage is less.
  • As the air is in direct contact with the rim, it provides good heat dissipation
  • No unbalance due to tube.

  • You can repair a puncture with the tubeless tyre repair kit.
  • But after prolonged usage of this "plugged" tyre, riders may experience air leak again at the old point.
  • For perfect tubeless tyre puncture repair, ask your tyre service man to put compound on it.
  • They will remove the old filler and will provide heat treatment with the "compound piece".

Tubeless Tyre

Tubeless Tyre Compound Treatment.

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 the Hydraulic Braking system, when putting back the tyre.

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.
