Fate and the art of motorcycle tyre inflation

Recommended Posts

Sod's law, though of course it'll keep happening if you will it and expect it!... or you never notice the 15x in a row when it's just in the right spot. :tongue:

Don't let a Thai inflate the tyres because he likes to over-inflate so the tyres are like concrete.

Also they don't handle well on slippery, wet roads.

I sacrifice a chicken weekly and that takes care of the valve problem.

Yeah !  The principle of inflating a tyre in Thailand is quite simple.

 

If the tyre wall says "maximum pressure 55psi" then that is the best pressure to have because maximum is always best.

 

Simples eh !

Have you tried holding the valve stem whilst riding?   That way you will know it's exact position when you come to a stop.
