Ride-in/ride-out tyre fitting
& wheel balancing service

the utmost care by our experienced technicians.
Tyres are among the most important components of your
motorcycle. The interface between you and the road,
if they're not in optimum condition then you're not only
risking your safety but potentially 3 points on your
licence and a £60 fine.
The capability of modern motorcycle tyres is
extraordinary, with tyre technology continuing to
strides in recent years. The stock tyres
available to road riders now offer levels of grip and control
that even GP racers of the 80s and
90s could only have dreamt about.
However, the effectiveness of motorcycle tyres will
diminish with wear and also deteriorate over time. A
set of tyres that are over three years old should
probably be replaced irrespective of visible tread
Because tyres can go off gradually it's easy to
overlook the effect on your bike. But it is noticeable
how new tyres can transform the handling of a
motorcycle. So if your bike has lost some of its
feel or developed other handling issues then ask us
to check the condition of your current tyres - a new
set of tyres might be all that's needed.
Mileage and grip - new sport touring
multi-compound tyres provide the best of both worlds
Before selecting replacement tyres for your bike
consider the type of riding you do and what you want
from your tyres - we can advise you on this and
recommend suitable alternatives to OE fitment tyres
for all types of motorcycles.
sports tyres will wear out more quickly; that's the
trade-off you make for the extra levels of grip they
provide. An alternative that's well worth
considering are the latest-generation sports touring
tyres, now providing extended mileage capability
combined with multi-compound formulations. These
recent developments provide a versatile, everyday
road tyre delivering grip levels and responsiveness
which approaches that provided by dedicated sports tyres.
Contact us to discuss the most suitable tyre options
for your needs.
Vital to scrub-in new tyres
Remember to ride cautiously on a brand new set
of tyres, allowing as much as 100 miles (not
including wet riding) to fully scrub-in the
surface of the new rubber before you begin to make any serious
demands upon them.

Although some racers recommend lowering tyre pressures for
track riding this remains a controversial issue and
certainly isn't advisable for road use. The
inflation pressure of a tyre is vital to its
performance, and it's essential for both safety and
optimal handling that you regularly check your tyre pressures
and maintain them at the recommended psi/bar for your bike.
Too low and the tyre will deform and can overheat,
reducing its effectiveness whilst increasing
wear and fuel consumption. Similarly, over-inflation increases wear
and reduces potential grip.
The traction provided by motorcycle tyres improves
dramatically with temperature. Bike tyres can take several
miles to get up to temperature; you should never push
the bike hard until the tyres have had a chance to warm
properly. Warming is produced by road contact and
braking forces. A common misconception is that weaving the
bike from side to side will warm the tyres more quickly,
though this actually has a negligible effect.
Progressively warming the tyres is even more critical
when track riding. Many track day 'offs' happen on
early laps because too much has been asked of a cold
