New motorcycle tyres.
« on: November 03, 2018, 10:47:07 PM »
I need a couple of new tyres on my little Kawasaki trail bike.
Has anyone any recommendations on a reliable m/cycle tyre dealer to get this done?

RK Superbike do a very good job with tyre changes. They have ALL of the proper gear including a wheel balance machine.

I have used them once already, and will be back there for new "shoes" after this riding season.

Fair price for a good job.

They have a good range and may even have you size tyres in stock (?)

Thank you. I know where you mean, and will give them a go.

I ordered Michelin tires from Lazada, they really worked well that I will continue to do so.  Easy to find a village scooter shop to mount them.

It would be interesting to know the price you paid. There are many copies on Lazada when it comes to tyres. I looked and the tyres I wanted were more than 60% cheaper on Lazada. That speaks a thousand words. I left well alone and bought locally, at the store mentioned above. Should have seen his face when I mentioned Lazada for tyres.

Have to agree on that. Lazada great for some things but when it comes to bike tyres I'd steer well clear. If the price is to good to be true, then it probably is.

Have been told good things about this shop. I'm considering having them fit an X-Pipe to my bike. Either there or the guy who specialises in Harley's who is also apparently very good.

Here's the order:

I've just noticed you are talking about a Fino. The OP, and subsequent replies, are referring to bigger bikes. Not the sort of bikes that have tyres that a "village scooter shop" can fit.

When the op says " little Kawasaki trail bike"  I would put that near Fino size, am not sure how you get "bigger bike" out of the word "little".

Because I know what type of bike he is referring to and the style of tyre.

To avoid any confusion, the tyre sizes I will need are.
Front 70/100-19
Rear  90/100-16

That sounds about right. I remember you saying you had a 150 KLX.

I guess after your previous post about the Kawasaki dealer in Buriram, you have ruled them out for tyres???
