Air Pressure

Properly inflated tyres not only provide optimum traction and control, but also offer better fuel economy. To enjoy the best riding experience check tyre pressure every 15 days when the tyre is cold. The tyre is cold when your motorcycle has not been ridden for more than 2 hrs. Avoid checking the inflation pressure of the tyre after long running. If it is unavoidable, follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations and add 4 PSI to the OE recommended pressure. Properly inflated tyres last longer.

Under Inflated tyre may
  • Damage the tyre
  • Cause adverse vehicle cornering
  • Increase fuel consumption
Over Inflated tyre may cause
  • Serious steering and braking problems
  • Increased wear of tyre
  • Frequent Punctures & Blow outs

Tyre Check

Have your tyres inspected regularly by your local mechanic for damage and wear. Riding on damaged/worn out tyre is prone to fatal skids and blow outs.

Always remove a tyre from service once the wear level reaches to tread wear indication bar located in grooves of the tyre (the height of tread wear indicator is 0.8mm).

Warming Up of Types
  • While the tyre is new, it is advisable to ride at moderate speeds avoiding lean angles during the first few miles of each ride.
  • Avoid rash acceleration and braking until the tyre is at optimum operating temperature.

Valve Inspection

Valve tend to develop cracks at the base over a period of time. This can lead to the failure of the valve. Dunlop recommends periodic checking of valve of tyre-rim assembly and replacing the valve as soon as any cracks are observed.

Valve Cap
  • Ensure the placement of valve cap at all times.
  • In addition to protecting the valve core against dust, it also acts as a secondary air seal.

Maximum Tyre Speed

Riding at high speed is dangerous, and can cause a motorcycle accident, including serious personal injury or death. The speed can vary depending on traffic, weather, vehicle, road conditions or permitted by law. No tyre, regardless of its design or speed rating, has unlimited capacity for speed and a sudden failure can occur if its limits are exceeded. Never exceed the speed in comparison to maximum speed rating stamped on the tyre sidewall of your tyre or the maximum vehicle speed rating, whichever is less.

Correct Fitment

Always ensure that two wheeler is equipped with the tyre size specified by motorcycle manufacturer in owner's manual or manufacturer's website. It is extremely important that the proper size of rim is used for your tyre. Be sure to match your tyre size against the size mentioned on rim.

The recommended direction of rotation is marked on the tyre with an embossed arrow. The tyre should be fitted as per the direction indicated by the arrow. Fitting the tyre in wrong direction can have adverse effect on tyre performance.

Load On Tyre

Riding your motorcycle in an overloaded condition is dangerous. Overloading causes excessive heat to build up in your tyres. This can lead to sudden tyre failure and serious personal injury or death while the tyre is overloaded. Never exceed the maximum load rating stamped on the tyre sidewall of your tyre or the maximum vehicle load rating, whichever is less.

  • This is a numerical code written on tyre sidewall which shows the maximum load that tyre can carry.
