Noise from front wheel of motorbike

I recently got a new tyre (Bridgestone) fitted to the front wheel of my motorbike to replace the dunlop tyre. I noticed that above 20 - 30 mph that there is a significantly increased noise from the front wheel. Is this noise from the new tyre until in wears in or have they not fitted the wheel back in place correctly?

Tread pattern can affect road noise considerably. Did you select a type designed for dirt? It would be a sort of rough buzz. Check for correct air pressure. An incorrect tire mounting usually causes a 'lumpy' ride and could be very dangerous at speed. Raise the front end till the wheel is clear and spin the tire. An improper mounting will show as an uneven tire pattern as the wheel turns.

Tyre pressures for a 175/65R14 tyre


Hi, sorry to say but there is no standard pressure for a tire size. It depends on make, load, tire type i.e. radial or crossply, tubed or tubeless. My Suzuki rear tire original Dunlop radial 36psi. changed to a Bridgestone same size 39psi. I would check with the tire manufacturer, if you run the tire over or under inflated you risk damaging the tire, poor grip and stability.

What brand of tire is the original tire on a Pontiac solstice?


manufactures used the cheapest tyres that a tyre manufacturer could supply in quantity. If one factory ran out then the next brand was fitted . So the car could have had goodyear for 6 months then the next shipment may have been bridgestone then dunlop depending who had what tyres during assembly.

Hi I have a Mazda 6 2013 with after market rims 19x8.5 fitted with Pirelli P 1's cinturato size tyre 245x40x19,what is the correct tyre pressure? Same alround or diffa front and back,original rims factory...


The factory tires said 33 psi. So put 33 psi in all four tires. But if you changed the tires with different tires I would put the psi it says on the tire andthe new tire gives you a different psi than the factory tires I would follow what the tire says check the tire and fill it all up with the same pressure but do t go over the maximum psi you need to be 5 psi below the max.

97 Cadillac Delegance Front end noise , dissapears when going into right hand turn then returns when straightening out. Tires recently rotated and balanced , tire that was on right front had wear pattern...


I would be checking out the wheel bearings for the problem. I would also be checking the front suspension for worn ball joints and steering end joints. Tyre wear patterns indicate unbalance-wheel alignment-shock absorbers and front end wear. I refuse to rotate tyres for several reasons Radial tyres when developing a wear pattern will retain that wear pattern even if placed on a trailer--Wear patterns show a fault for that wheel and tells which wheel and what needs to be done to repair it and lastly tyres wear in pairs so if you have a front wheel drive car why replace 4 tyres when the need is to replace only 2 front ones. Saves about 50% of the cost of tyres. The rotation theory came about from cross ply tyres and does not apply to radials except for tyre dealers profits

Odd question

Where does safety come in here?
All tire mfg make safe tires for your car

That said there are some that won't be so good
on it

Pirelli's are too hard a ride in my opinion

Tire Rack is the place to look & read reviews

Then go to at least four stores to look at tread designs

I would suggest you look at cooper tires if they have your size
in the tread you want

Goodyear are too expensive & so forth etc

Take your time doing some research

Front Tyre feathering on Silverwing 600


The OEM Dunlop, IRC,Bridgestone, or quality major brand tire should be adequate. I have always had the best life and wear out of my tires by running higher pressure (usually 35-36 pounds ). The ride is harder but it reduces cupping on the tire sides increasing usable tire life.

Need specs for changing rear and front tires for 2002 royal star venture including torx specs


I'll include the obvious, since I'm not sure exactly what you need:

Front tire - 150/80-16 Dunlop D404F or Bridgestone G705, recommended inflation 36 p.s.i.

Rear tire - 150/90-15 Dunlop D404 or Bridgestone G702, recommended inflation 36 p.s.i., 41 p.s.i. with passenger or load.

The front tire can be removed (motorcycle on lift) without loosening calipers or any other parts once axle shaft has been withdrawn; after the tire has been changed and the wheel and axle shaft is back in place, torque for the axle nut is 58 ft.-lbs (78 nm) and the pinch nut is 14 ft.-lbs. (19 nm).

The rear tire requires removal of the right saddlebag and brake caliper, as well as the axle shaft. During reassembly, the torque for the axle nut is 110 ft.-lbs. (150 nm), for the pinch nut on the swing arm 17 ft.-lbs (23 nm). Bolts for the caliper should be torqued to 30 ft.-lbs. (40 nm).

It's a good idea to lubricate the drive splines in the rear wheel and the mating shaft in the final drive while the rear wheel is out.

Diferent size tyres front and back is this normal?


That is normal, most motorcycles run different size front and rear tyres. My BMW has a 21" in the front and a 17" in the rear. The tyre you buy should match your riding style. Don't get a race tyre if all you do is communting, the tyre will wear out too quickly. Expect to pay $150 or so for a rear tyre, perhaps a little less for the front. Mounting & balancing is normally $20-$50 per tyre. Many shops will not mount a tyre you bought somewhere else, keep that in mind if you order tyres from the internet.
