Understanding More About Motorbike Tyres

I have been learning a lot about tyres and I thought it might make a useful video for others. In the past I had always looked at tyre tread and cracking on the rubber, but as I compare my old and new tyres, it turns out there is a little more to check for.

As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions. I hope you subscribe so you can see when I release the next set of videos. Thanks to all for watching, I really appreciate your support.

I never knew you could get so much info off a tyre. Great video, I’ve learnt a lot 🙂

hi Tamsen; I have just put BT 023s on my Bandit; the old tyres looked fine but when I checked they were made in 2009!! so I decided to change them. The difference in ride is fantastic; like riding a different bike. Tyres are so important that little contact patch keeping you upright. So many people are keen to do upgrades to their bikes but I would rather spend the money the essentials Tyres; Brakes etc. Best Wishes Paul.

Thanks Tamsen, as always I learned something and it’s great to see your vids. I’m glad to see your shoulder is now healed (enough to try those new tyres) Did you do the work yourself or just remove the wheels? Also what make is your paddock stand. I’m thinking of upgrading to an “Abba” with attachment which lifts the front wheel. I fitted my new “YSS” rear shock absorber today, so test ride soon. :>)

Thanks for the tips…didn’t know of the manufacturing year on them…will check it on my racing bike since i had a crash a couple of months ago on the circuit because of rear end slip…need to check if the tires are old or it was my fault accelerating to much on the exit…or maybe both. 😀 have a nice day

Great Video again. Top Informations! I roll on the floor laughing about the word “chickenstrips”. Never hear that before. Greetz from Germany, T.

I don’t worry about chicken strips, I am a BIG Chicken. 🙂

Barnfish says:

I had no idea about the wear and how steps form, explaining why sometimes it feels like the bike has just shifted slightly whilst cornering. Thanks.
