motorcycle tires problem


Recommended Posts

The tires which I bought on ebay cannot be balanced, it’s out of round.Tried riding and had wobble. 
It was mounted in shop and they also put it on a rim they had sitting in the shop and same issue to confirm it.
Are they defective ?
They have brand new high quality tires for my  old suzuki gsxr750 and want about $600 for two tires.
Is it worth it to pay that much or buy another set of front rear tires like Hexautoparts which has good reviews on trustpilot.com?
Any recommendations ?
Thank you.

Is this a street bike ?

You could have just gotten a bad run of tires off the line.  It happens but the question is how many tires were made before they picked up on a production problem? 
Have you reached out to the vendor or checked any complaint reviews etc? 

I feel that one item you should never try to go cheap on  (especially street bikes) are the tires.   Its what the bike rides on and your life depends on when it comes to traction and stability.

      Hey I have a 1997 big bear 350 4x4
      I replaced the shifter shaft and the shift arm linkage and the rod when I installed them all I was unaware that you had to line the dot on the shifter shaft with the gap on the linkage arm gap put it all back  together and rode it I can't get it to shift in the right gears  I can move the shift cam by hand and goes in different gears but with the shifter shaft in it riding I can't put it in R or N 
      Anyone know how to line up the shifter shaft and the shift cam s

      This is something I'm extremely curious about. Has anyone ever attempted to buy a quad (or any other vehicle) from an impound lot? I've always wondered if this could be a bargain, or a waste of time. Google searches do turn up some helpful results. Looks like the state of NJ holds auctions online which I'd be a bit hesitant about.
       
      My online searches haven't really turned up any results of anyone buying an ATV this way. I'd be really curious if anyone tried this, or knows someone who has. I've actually found a couple pages with online auctions for my state, but none had ATVs.

      What are your riding location preferences? Mud Park? Personal Trails? Public Land?

      I am in the process of puting it back together after replacing the DPS gearbox.
      The manual I have states that it will need to be flashed by a dealer. Is this still true?

      Pic is no go for now....Cox issue I will try again later
