Ok help the new guy please

Post  RESCUE-K9 on Wed Aug 28, 2013 6:19 pm

Ive been kicking around the car tire rear since I started ride my GL 1500. I just did a ride and actually meet someone running a CT rear and he sent me here for info. So my questions are....
Whats the best fit for the 1500?
Will Dyna-Bead work for balancing and if so how much?
I mount my own tires now with just the tire spoons and my hands will I be able to do that with the CT?
Do I have to change out the front tire at the same time to something special?
And thank you in advance.

Your best bet is and Austone Taxi tire.
Use 3 oz beads in the rear and 2 oz in the front.
With a lot of sweat you can mount the tire.
Run a regular MC tire on the front like you normally would.

good luck and enjoy the dark side

I ride a 1500GL, Mounted an Austone 3years ago have 15,000 miles on it , no problems whatsoever. Have been coast to coast and done the Alaska Hwy, Dawson City, Top of the World hwy. I have a BTX (130/ 70/18) Rear mounted up front. 3oz Dynabeads rear 2oz front. I have ridden in every type of weather, on every type of road, you can think of pulling my camper trailer. Best move I made was going DD.
Take care,
Be safe.
