RIM tape?

Recommended Posts

I am new to dirtbike and changed my son's tube on his dirtbike. I managed to accidentally scrape out a rotting piece of RIM tape or whatever it's called. The thing that lays over the end of the spokes. I wasn't sure if it would end up popping the tube. But he has been on 2 rides with no problems. Should I fix it, does it matter.

just use some duct tape(in half the long way) on the next go around or if you are worried, pull the tire and tube. The tube could eventually wear thin against the spoke nipples. I would change it out so a ride day isn't cut short.
