Indeed! Spit it out! OUT! OUT I SAY! What's the next addition to the stable going to be? Now we all know why there's a used bike shortage - Eric buys them ALL!
PS - let me know if you want a 2017 690 Enduro/SMC. I hear they are going for top dollar.
Put Dunlop trailmax missions on the 650, and you are done..... The occasional gravel road won't hurt it KK, I promise.
650 GS must be for you. Karen and I are smarter than to take that off road.
1. Inspect the old tube. The sidewalls of them wear as they get old, and the rubber hardens. A couple year old tube is probably fine. Buy spare tubes anyway, as you will always pinch at least one with the tire iron while changing tires.The GS has spoked wheels and tubes in the tires. Tubed motorcycle tires are new to me. A few questions:
edit - we had the dirt bikes before we started mounting and balancing our own tires, so back then we just brought the wheels to the dealer for new tires.
- Should you always use a new tube when changing a tire?
- Should you only use bias-ply tires when running tubes?
- Should you dust new tubes with baby powder, like with bicycle tubes?
