MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT
Installing a tube inside a tube-
less-type tire can create exces-
sive heat build up that can dam-
age the tube and cause rapid
deflation. The tires, rims, and
air valves on this motorcycle are
designed only for tubeless type
wheels. The recommended stan-
dard tires, rims, and air valves
must be used for replacement.
Do not install tube-type tires on
tubeless rims. The beads may
not seat properly on the rim
causing tire deflation.
