Or... there's something still in the tire.

Probably

my neighbor popped his tire and he "accidentally" spun out with it so he completely ruined the tube.

Now he's awating a new tube for his dad to go get. 🙂

check the inside of the tire to see if there is a thorn or something stuck in it. if your tire is worn down enough, some thorns can be hidden inside the tread and when you put weight on it they can come down and pop the tube

Somethign could be still in the tire. Also, if you have the L model or LE, then the tire pressure should be at 15psi 🙂 Both front and rear.

i know someone makes a tire for on quads, it has like 5 rubber boloons in it so if one of the rubber boloons pops the other 4 just flatten out some more and you can continue riding.

i run 12-13 in the front and 10-12 in the back close to what it says on the swingarm and there dosnt seem to be any problems except with the old tire...man that maxxis rear tire looks a lot taller???

It says in the manual to put 15psi in wach tire. Where do you see the Maxxis tire? I have brand new Michelin tires sitting in my room that I plan on putting on my bike when I sell it soon. I wish I could get to see how good they work because they look good. They are about a 1/2-5/8 inch higher than my stock tire(its worn down pretty good, about 3/8-1/2in. tread left).
