How to inflate your tyres

MCN, 27 June 2011 11:59

Petrol stations compressors have that long steel nozzle, which is OK for cars, but the angle to fit over the valve is impossible as the discs are in the way.

Will GSX-R steer quicker with an 180/55 rear tyre?

MCN, 06 June 2011 17:26

I’ve been told that a 180/55 tyre on the back of my Suzuki GSX-R1000 K6 will help it steer quicker. Is that correct?Natasha Quigley, email The ‘pub expert’s’ theory is that because the tyre is narrower it takes less time to roll across its tread width, which makes it faster steering.

What’s caused my tyre valve to blow out?!

MCN, 18 May 2011 14:40

Last week I had what I think was a fairly lucky escape.

It seemed my minor disturbance of the valve ...
