As the weather opens an invitation into the outdoors, we have to begin looking closer at our motorcycles maintenance. My front tire is going on 28,000 miles and although it's still in the green on the tread depth gauge reading in at 4/32 I decided to replace it. We recently replaced the rear tire and have only put about 2000 miles on it so this will set the bike up with new tires for another 20,000 + miles. The new rear tire I installed was the Michelin Commander II. It seems to be a good tire so I wanted to match the front tire with the same type of tire.
Using A Shop For Mounting And Balancing
Removing the front wheel on a motorcycle is very easy and can save quite a bit of cash that you could use for things like Riding. We have our local dealership mount and balance the tire but I like to save on the labor cost by removing and reinstalling the wheel myself. The video below covers the entire process on a 2015 Harley Davidson FLHXS. You will need a motorcycle jack to do this. The process is similar on most bikes, not just Harley’s. Be sure to have a service manual for your specific make, model, and the year before performing any work because it will detail the torque specifications that you need to know.
