Keep on Rollin’ with the Right Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Tubes
Roaring down the road on your Harley-Davidson motorcycle is one of life’s joys. You’ll always look great on your hog, but you should reciprocate the favor and maintain your bike regularly. In fact, checking tire pressure is one of the easiest—and most important—maintenance jobs you have with your bike. BikeBandit.com makes it easy, though, with our huge selection of Harley-Davidson motorcycle tubes. Don’t risk having a flat (though we tell you how to fix flats with our “Garage” video series) or even worse, having an accident caused by a flat tire. With some knowledge and understanding of the role that tubes play, you’ll ride far.
Inner Tube 101
How do you know, though, which tube to choose for your motorcycle’s tires? Again, as in many areas of maintenance, the answer depends on various factors. Where do you ride? How far and how often? If you’re a seasoned Bar and Shield rider, you may have a tried-and-true formula for choosing your bike’s tubes. Are you choosing the best ones, though, for the way you ride now? New advancements in tubes, too, may mean the tubes you’ve always bought aren’t the best choice anymore. If you’re new to riding Harley-Davidsons, you may not be sure which tubes are best. If that’s the case, ask us. Here at BikeBandit.com, our virtual superstore of tires and tubes and accessories is huge, and we’ll help you navigate through the choices to find the best tubes for your motorcycle.
Life isn’t Flat with Good Tubes
Good tubes matter, because your motorcycle’s tires, tubes and the air in them are the only things between you and a very bad day. Sometimes thinner stock tubes aren’t the best choice for your motorcycle tires. If you’re shopping for new tires, don’t forget new tubes, too, because they play a huge role in the performance and feel of your tires. BikeBandit.com stocks tubes from top brands such as Bridgestone, Sedona, STI, Kenda, Dunlop and Michelin.
Your tubes need to be the right size for your tires, meaning they sit flush against the sidewalls. They also should be inflated to the right pressure, usually about 12 to 14 psi. You also need to consider natural rubber compared to synthetics, which are cheaper. A higher percentage of natural rubber means the tubes better resist punctures and are more pliable. All of this may sound complicated, but BikeBandit.com will make it easy for you to choose the right Harley-Davidson motorcycle tubes.
