Tyre rub

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Just got a new set of tyres on the ktm sxf, came back from a ride and I noticed the back tyre had been rubbing on the exhaust. How do you overcome this problem? space out the exhaust i.e put a few washers on the fixing bolts? any help would be great. I put this in the ktm section but there are not many people on there so I thought here may get a few more replies. Anyone experienced it on any other bikes?

My bud works at a bike shop, while it was in I got him to sort it out. Not actually sure what size he put on but im guessing it is bigger.

i don't know if you will be able to fix the rub or not. might be forced to buy the right sized tire.

are you sure, I mean it is a matter of millimeters too wide. I thought maybe shaving an ever so slight bit of the knobblies down?
