    Brand new rear motorcycle tire. Has never been on a rim. I bought two rear tires after a flat because the first one had a shipping delay. Realized based on my usage I'm not going to get around to putting this one on before the age of the rubber dictates I get a newer one. This was manufactured...

    Hey guys, first time poster here. I started on this '71 CB350 a few months ago as my first ever build. Got the bike virtually all stock: Immediately tore down the bike to a rolling chassis. Used a cognito moto conversion stem to swap on a 2007 GSXR 600 front end, and here's how the bike sits...

    Hello, New to the forum, first post! Just grabbed a sweet 72 cl350 and I want to do some mild mods to it, its too nice to hack up. First thing I want to do is put some new shoes on her. I want to throw on some shenko 705s, what is the biggest size I can put on the rear? 120/90/18? thinking this...
  4. Tires, Wheels, and Brakes
    Putting together the punch list of jobs to do on my new 1979 CM400A, and I noticed a chunk missing from the rear tire when I got back from a quick ride around the block. Since I'm listing jobs anyway, I take a closer look at the tires (that I was assured are fine - bet you didn't see that...
  5. Tires, Wheels, and Brakes
    Finishing up an SL 350 project, runs like a swiss watch. Has brand new full knobbies on it which are just too much for my back road touring. 75% lumpy rural dirt roads, 25% crappy county road pavement. Full knobbies are just too much for my riding- no mud bogs, hill climbing, canyon jumping, or...
  6. Tires, Wheels, and Brakes
    Hello all! I hope everyone is enjoying this nice weather we are having. Unfortunately my rear tire is experiencing a leak around the rim where the rubber hits the metal (no specific spot). Does this mean I need a new tire? My wife says I should get new tires no matter what, and she is probably...

    I forgot to order tubes with my tire, so I am going to the shop to pick some up and get the tires mounted. The 2 shops near me however dont have the right size tubes. One doesnt have one at all near the size, and the other has a 110/90-18 tube. I am sticking 100/90-18 tire on my front rim...

    I am in need of some new tires. My front is original to the bike it seems, date code 4279 I believe, and the rear, I have no idea (date code 3020). Anyways I am going to get a new set of tires. On my last 1980 cb650c, I put kenda K657 challengers on it and they seemed like a good tire for an...
  9. Tires, Wheels, and Brakes
    Hi, I've been shopping for tires for my '71 CB450, and I've had a hard time finding a rear 3.5-18 tire that I really like. There are a bunch of options at 4.0-18, and I'm wondering if it's that big a deal to go up to the 4.0" width? Funny enough, the tire that's on there now is a 4.25-18...

    This randomly popped out while topping off my front tire and I have no idea how to replace it or which size to purchase. I saw a video talking about replacing these without removing the tire, but it was for cars and I'm not finding a lot of follow-up information. Does anyone have any knowledge...
