Post  270 on Tue May 05, 2009 8:06 am

Hello Guys,,I have an 1800S,, and want to go Darkside,with a tube, I would like to find someone that has the same bike and pick there brains , as to any problems with installation or what they think of the car tire,since they have installed it.
Im a high mile guy,, and 5 or 6 hundred a year is to much for tires,,car tire seems to be the answer.
Thanks for any and all help.

there's a couple, some with a tube and some with a sealed rim...

Takes more pressure to seat the tire is about all I recall off hand...

hopefully someone with more info will chime in soon...

2002 vtx 1800s

Post  BJSORRELL123 on Wed Sep 16, 2009 10:46 pm

iswitched over about a year ago what a job and a half. I sealed my rim and using dyna beads. Looking back i dont thnk there are many using tubes. For me it took about 110 psi before the bead would pop and not very many shops wil help you out unless you tell them it's going on a trike. it surel was a scary moment when the finally popped into place
