Well yesterday I noticed the SCR 950 was feeling even heavier then usual as I pulled it out of my parking spot.
Of course it was a puncture these as you know only ever happen in rear tyres. So 250KG, no center stand not amusing at all.
I have disliked oem tyres from day one so for just a little more money I opted to get some road tyres front and rear.
Found a great mobile fitter at a brilliant price. First choice was Avon roadriders but ended up with Bridgestone A41.....
Will let you know how they perform not gonna miss the 70 howl at all.

Ha - I don’t think I’d done many more miles when I got my first puncture.....

.....happened on a roundabout in Hull......:rolleyes:. Certainly tightened the old sphincter, did that.......

I just opted for a new inner tube at that time though......can you say “mistake”?! :ROFLMAO:

It as been 5 years since last puncture and I can often sort problem myself, but the SCR is nightmare too sort. My tyre fitter told me to use slime treatment in tubes and I will be taking is advice.

You’ll have to let us know how that goes - I was always warned off the stuff, owing to the terrible mess it leaves.

I didn’t even realise it could be used in tubed tires either, until I looked it up just now.....

Cheers,

Ben

Personally I wouldn't use stuff in tubeless tyres, but the SCR is a very different animal and of course we are only putting in the the tube.
Forget slime I have been steered away from it, just seems to be for everything but bikes like ours. I'm going to use puncture safe found some on eBay at a shop near me biker bargain brands at Newcastle under Lyme near stoke. Don't want rerun of this again.

Hi Odyoa
Sorry to hear about the puncture, it’s a real bummer when that happens, spoils the day never mind the expense.
Did you’re mobile fitter remove, refit the wheels and tension the belt etc?

Left key with next door neighbor went to work came home to find job done, great service won't be going anywhere else again , I'm pretty good with tyres as I was a a tyre fitted in my youth but ...... 250Kg / tube / no center stand it is the perfect storm bike is so much better no howling above 70mph . I have no use for off-road tyres as I only ride on tarmac.

That sounds brilliant, I will give you a shout when I am ready for some new rubber. I think like yourself I will be going for road tyres

If you never or hardly ever venture of road, fitting block type tyres is imho is daft. if we lived in a pefect world were it never rained we would not need any grooves or patterns. So all tyres are a compromise. Hopefully I have a few thousand miles trouble free and quiet rides ahead of me but...... spotted these bad boys yesterday Dunlop mutants now these look brilliant. Would if they will fit the SCR?
