Default Re: Tyres.

Just had an email to say National Bike Tyres don't have a front tyre in the size I need and have given me a full refund. Grrr....

Just re-ordered a pair of tyres from Moto-Tyres who appear to have the right sizes. 250.00 the pair. They are the GTII tyres rather than the plain GTs, so more expensive. Sigh....

One of the best moves I made was to fit 90 Deg Valves when I fitted my own tyres,

Makes putting air in a doddle



Mine are Black anodized.



I used a bit of Blue thread-lock for extra security.

Taken your advice RR and ordered a pair of right angled valve stems. Not from your link though as the guy has only got a 95% feed back rating. Found someone else with a 100% rating.

I'm sure you'll find it great how such a little mod can make such a big difference

I'm right handed so I angled them to the best position for me to easily get my Foot-Pump on before tightening them.
