How many Kilometers can tubeless tyres last? and how many plug-in repairs can I do on each tyre? will they last for about 60000 km like with -tube -tyres?


The real answer is different tires have different mileage ratings. It's best to refer to the manufacturer's website or Tire Rack for this type of information. Driving style can also impact the tread life of your tires, aggressive driving decreases tire life. But the most important thing you can do to ensure that you get the most from your tires is to ensure that your suspension, control arm bushings, ball joints and tie rods are in great shape and top it off with an alignment. Unfortunately, there is no excuse for a vehicle that hasn't been maintained.

How long shoul tyres last on gxs750


Jacqui that would depend on the way you ride and/or the compound of the tyres. Soft compound may be safer if you are a hard rider, middle of the road compound if just ride for pleasure. I got 4000 kms out of a rear tyre on a 1981 Triumph Bonny.

Hi just bought a yamaha xtz 660 n reg and not sure on the tyre pressures hope you can help.


Have a search for an owners forum, they should be able to help. The other way is to look at what make of tyres you have, then go and look on the manufactures website. Avon tyres, for example, will let you select the bike you own, then give details of their recommended tyres and their recommended pressures.
hope this helps.

Never heard of that. I use Schwable Marathon Plus' on my touring bicycles and have never had anyone (including the Schwable factory rep) mention putting tires in a basement. Besides, I don't have a basement. I'm pretty happy with the Bridgestones on my Shadow Aero. 12,500+ on them and they still have a lot of life left. I will need to replace the tires on my Rebel next year and I'll probably go with Metzlers. When the time comes to replace the Shadows tires, I'll get Metzlers for them as well. Two of my Guzzi have Metzlers and they feel superior to the Bridgestones. Better traction on the road when its raining out. And the few times I've ridden when its snowing, the Metzlers gripped MUCH better than the Bridgestones.

Ned to check my tyres


Tires should be checked when cool. Set the pressure to the amount shown on the frame sticker. If you don't have the frame sticker a good pressure to use is betwen 30/33 and 33/35 psi. Some folks use the lower pressure in winter. Also, when tires are new they have a release compound residue that needs to be gradually scrubbed off with riding wear. It is slippery so if you ride really hard on new tires you might do some sliding.
