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.

      Picked this beauty up for zero dollars this weekend. It has been passed around several of my son's friends and the last kid was just tired of tinkering with it.  Mostly complete 96 300FW. The pic is my boy robbing the swing arm and rear diff for his 300 for a big memorial weekend ride. Wiring is garbage at the battery, kick start doesnt work, no coil, smoked like cheech and chong when it ran last. I figure a couple hundred and a few hours and this will be ready to ride. Journey will be documented on Instagram at @martincyclellc if ya wanna follow along.

      Just now rolling over 100k miles. Been feeling some steering weirdness so I get one front wheel up in the air and push at 3 and 9 and sure enough there's some wobble. Pushing at 12 and 6 gives no play at all.
      Although I'll probably be replacing the worn part myself I need some help diagnosing what all might need to be replaced. And since I need an alignment anyway I've made a deal w/ my local Goodyear tire shop to do a pre alignment inspection and identify my bad part(s) so I can replace them before they do the job.
      When I drop the car off what specific parts should I ask them to look at? I'm sure tie rod ends but what other kind of worn parts could be causing movement on the 3-9 push test?

      Charging issue?
      I have a 2017 Polaris Sportsman 570 EFI. Yesterday, I start the machine and it says low power (10.6-10.8). This machine is on its second battery. This is a new AGM battery with 50cca more than stock.
      Should I look at the regulator or stator?
      Thanks!!!

      Does anyone know the exact name of this part? Bottom of tire is tilting in Under the bike and top or tire is tilting out away from the bike. Not terrible but it’s a little 90 for kids want to make it safe. Just need to know exactly what the part is called.

      It’s kind of ATV related question as I need new trailer tires to tow my 4 wheeler. 
      Does anybody have any experience with loadstar 12” trailer tires ? 
      There is not to many choices for trailer tires here in Ontario and I was wandering if somebody can recommend me something.

      Does everyone run the tire pressure as stated on tires or perhaps a couple # below to soften the ride a little?

      I have a 2013 KQ I bought it new but rolled it a few years ago. I have replaced the left lower A-arm and left tie rod, the steering is still a little sketchy as I just eye balled the alignment. But the major issue is the left front tire cambers out at the top and has wore the tire bald. Tires have about 2000 miles on them but other 3 are half tread and left front is a slick.. I can not see anything else bent and don't know what to do..

      Looking to get some tires for my old quad, but the tires are getting rarer.  Paying near 100 for tires seems a lot when that is what I just paid for tires for my car and i only ride four or five times a year 
       
      Anyone have any leads on good used or closeouts in 23x10/12 and 23x8/12?
       
      Additionally, what other sizes can I run that might be easier to find and not muck with the 4x4?
       
      Thanks,
