If you blow a tyre...

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' at netrider.net.au started by pete AU, Feb 17, 2006.

  1. What do you do if you blow a tyre. Whats the best way to come to a safe stop?

  2. front or back?

    If it's the front you hang on for dear life, try to keep it straight, and hope you hit something soft. Like a pedestrian.
  3. hehehhehe.... and back tires... not too much of a prob, depending on how big the blow is. If its only leaking slowly you can fill her up at the next servo and hopefully get it home/bike shop before its fully deflated again.
  4. A sudden back tyre flat will often cause an increasing weave and a feeling like the back end of the bike is loose... at that point I recommend stopping :)

    A quick front flat is down right scary... and I don't know any other way to describe it.

    Luckily tubeless tyres are much more likely to slowly deflate rather than go *bang* like tubed tyres.

  6. If you find yourself blowing a tyre. STOP and think about it! You clearly need to find a new girlfriend. :cool: :LOL:
