innertubes

Post  Dan Koich on Mon Apr 29, 2013 11:51 am

I guess I need to learn about innertubes. I just bought one and on the tube it says something like "Do Not mount this innertube in a radial tire" Perhaps that's not an exact quote, I actually didn't see it before it was mounted. So what's up with that? Is my rear tire going to explode and send me cartwheeling up in the air? Or is this similiar to "You can't put a car tire on a motorcycle" because you'll all crash and burn and your children will go to hell?

Hopefully you got a motorcycle tube, otherwise I don't think you have a problem.

Yes-- it's a Harley brand tube for a 16inch wheel--5.5 inch wide tube, bought from the Harley dealership.

It's what I'm running - MT's first, then the Vredestein and then your Austone. ZERO problems, or heat. One thing tho...had a low tire in morning,
aired it and rode the day, next morning flat...stoopid NUT on the valve stem was loosened, so now I tell everyone to check that if you have
tubeless. (I mean that I ran the tube in the radials for a while, then bought the Fatboy wheels and went tubeless.)
Others are running them with no problems also.
Hey, you still coming down the 9th? Just cleared with the OL, we will have the guest room ready so you can have your own room (it's like a little
motel room with a fridge too) and your own bathroom. No sense paying a motel - you've done so much for me! Deb is an awesome cook too, so
come hungry!
Also I have the fully equipped shop for anything your bike or gear needs. I really wanna bless you back brothah!
