Re: Front tyres

I bought a pair of 130/70 x 18 Michelin Road Classic from MyTires in the end and fitted them to the rims. These replace the Michelin Pilots. A bit of a job when they're cold and stiff but they went on ok. Here's a pic during the balancing process, I think I have enough wheel weights don't you... :lo...

Re: Front tyres

I think I'm going for these tyres - they can be used tubed or tubeless as they have a butyl rubber lining apparently - obviously need tubes with the spoked wheels. A 130/70 x 18 will fit my rim - has anybody used this tyre at all ? https://www.demon-tweeks.com/uk/michelin-road-classic-motorcycle-tyr...

Re: Front tyres

I'm on the hunt for new front tyres for the wide rim Type 4 wheels on my new Triking. The original ones I bought have a defect so I've borrowed a pair of wheels with Mitas tyres on which I quite like, lots of tread and they seem to work well. They're priced at £58 each on the web so tempting... I've...

Trailer for Triking Type 1/2/3 sale

I now have a covered trailer for my Type 3 so my original trailer is for sale. Based on a heavy duty galvanised A frame boat trailer it has an additional axle and aluminum ramps and platforms for the Triking. All up weight with Triking aboard is under 600KG so it doesn't need brakes and it tows very...

It's often the little things that catch you out as I know to my own cost...

Re: Type of inspection

I think most of us have used the braided hose kit that Triking supply as it's made to length and offers reasonable value for money. Interesting question though...

Re: VMCC Founders Day 2021 , Stanford Hall, Leics.

Please put me down for a place Andy, I'll have had both my jabs by the end of this month and hopefully what with the vaccine and the summer weather it should go ahead ok.

Thanks Dave

Re: Type of inspection

It's best to present the Triking in as simple a form as possible for the MSVA especially with no windscreen, otherwise you'll need demisters. No need to put the wipers on or have it painted either. With regard to seats make sure you check that the seat cushions are not too padded because they measur...
