Hey everyone, newb question here. My bike has been sitting since early Dec. with no rides or rollarounds. :shock: :evil: Is this going to have an adverse effect on the tires? What can I do to help this if it is a problem?
Mine sat from before thanksgiving until last Saturday when I was finally able to get out. I know its not the best idea to let it sit on the side stand but thats what I did, btw, thats Mr. Stupid to you . Anyway, I check the tire pressures every time before I go out, got a very nice top line gauge, and there was no pressure drop off. I didn`t have any noticeable flat spots either. I have the stock Michelin tires on it.
i'm in the same boat as you are ... let her on the stand since thanksgiving , warmed her up every other day , but took her out everyday last week ... no flat spots but i did have to inflate the tires ... it was sad for the past few weeks just warming her up and watching her cry out to me
My tires are the D208's, the bike is on the sidestand, and I guess I do have to admit that I have sat on it and rolled it around the garage once or twice this winter. Hey what's a guy in Iowa with a new RR supposed to do! So you guys think some air and a little roll here and there should be OK for this year?
Yea, that should do it. These aren`t bias ply tires anymore. Radial tires aren`t as sensetive to flat spots as the old bias plies were. Thats not to say you cant have a problem, just not as likely as it used to be.
