Re: What tube sealant are you using?

I think the answer may be to do as suggested Alan and carry some sealant with me in case of puncture.

Re: What tube sealant are you using?

Rob I have used it in the past but now just carry a canister of sealant for punctures. Odd that it is only now you are having issues, how long has the sealant been in? I think 'Slime' say that the sealant has a 2 year life span after being put in a tube, which would mean a tube change every 2 years...

From inspecting the valves, it looks like slime is semi curing and blocking the valve when I check tyre pressures - something I do very regularly.

Re: Which Shocks

I have heard very good things about ikon shocks, however, I understand they are a bit pricey.

I think I’ll be putting hagons on the KH when I build it.

What tube sealant are you using?

For years I have used ‘slime’ in my inner tubes, without any issues to speak of until recently. I have had, on two occasions, the slime attempt to seal up the schraeder valve and have lost tyre pressure as a result (the most recent case being a completely flat tyre). So, I am wondering if anyone has...

Re: why Li-ion batteries are no good for motorcycles

Lithium batteries are a great idea on modern bikes where space is a premium, you get excellent CCA vs size and there is a huge weight advantage over AGM batteries. You do need to care for them properly and leave them on a trickle charger. On a classic bike with no electric leg and very little to pow...

Re: Broken-up Magneto Drive Chain

I have had this happen on timing chains before. I have put it down to bent teeth on the cam or magneto sprockets. Sprockets unlimited suggested a few years ago using a chain which is wider (as the traditional size timing chain is no longer available from a quality manufacturer), and the extra width ...

FERCing final drive chain

I purchased a new final drive chain at stafford as my old one has got to the end of its adjustment. 100 links as quoted, and when I fit the new chain, it is towards the end of its adjustment! When I counted the links on the old chain, I discovered that I had a half link in the chain, so I was runnin...
