  • I'm feeling a little deflated... now what?

    Hi Guys

    It got pointed out to me yesterday that the rear tyre on my gixx is flat
    i knew there mustve been a reason i was feeling sooky this week and taking the cage to work

    Its pretty worn anyway so probably cant be plugged

    Just wondering how to get the tyre replaced as i dont have a trailer, are there tyre people out there that come to you ??

    Couple of choices ask someone from PSB to borrow a rear stand pull the wheel and take that in to get changed. Pump the tyre up and see how long it takes to deflate, if its a slow leak you will probally have enough time to get to a shop. Failing that buy one of the tempray patch/plug kits plug it and ride it around to the bike shop. Expensive option (50-70 dollars) is pay a professional motorcycle mover to come get your bike and transport it for you.

            Go buy a rear stand. Best thing you'll own.

                  Just a word of warning if you intend to get a tyre on Sat the vast majority of shops do not do tyres on Saturdays. Tyres for bikes do but book now and get in early and I mean early, Motorcycle masters might I haven't asked, Thunderbikes do but they don't neacasily carry a large range of tyres so its worth ringing and asking (they'll get it in if need be). Dunno who else might maybe total motorcycle accesories or bike doc but I'd start ringing around now.

                    Have you been riding it anyway?

                    May be able to pump it up (I can lend you a compressor) and just ride it down...

                          for 70 bucks it might be very handy to have on country rides & trips away from the big smoke...

                          or for the situation fledge finds herself in.
