Front Tire Problem???

Recommended Posts

On my 2004 CRF450 my front tire keeps going flat. In the stock tire we found broken glass when we changed the tube. So then i boke a new tire and tube and got it replaced, and two rides later my tube was flat as [@#$%&*!]. Am i the only one this is happening to???

clean the inside of your rim really good, then take some duct tape and wrap the inside. You will need to replace the tape every couple of tires but it will help save your tubes. Also check your spokes to make sure none are loose and pinching your tube. :thumbsup:

I say look a tthe spokes as well. I had one spoke that was about two threads too long. It woudl poke through the rim strip when pressure was added to the tire.

It woudl slide back through when the pressure was released.

More than likely a naughty little spoke somewhere. You didn't mention what kind of riding you were doing (MX or woods) too many rock hits will also flatten a tire.
