Re: Clutch dragging or slipping on monza

Re: Fitting tyres to SIP tubeless rims

Any tyre shop that fits car tyres should be able to fit them (as long as their machine will fit 10" wheels)
I just go to my mates place and fit them myself, just the same as fitting any car tyre. Now AF or scoot rs tubeless are a whole different ball game !
