Nail in the rear tire, only 700 miles on the bike
« on: July 20, 2017, 05:39:26 pm »
Rode my 2016 to work today, left home an hour early just to take the back roads to the office.
All was good.
Headed back home for lunch and TPMS warning came on, 24 lbs in the rear. Made it to the nearest service station and sure enough, a big fat roofing nail about 3/4 the way up the thread, stuck into the thinnest part of one of the grooves.
Air'd up and made it home.
Not a fan of plugging M/C tires, so I'm now hunting for a replacement.
I would prefer to keep a matched front/rear set, so with that being said is there a suitable Battlax derivative other than the factory 021R that is usable on the C-14?

Thanks.
