    I trashed the stock conti trailattacks on a sharp rock while on the TET today. Tire plug isn't holding. Anyone in the DC area have a set of tires that I could buy to use to get back up to boston? The Ktm dealer in the area doesn't have anything in stock.... :cry

    You could always tube it if the carcass is still smoothe on the inside. The offset valve shouldn't be a problem, others are doing it, and I have done it on a GSA withe the offset valve.

    I was able to find a tube at a dealer. Works great!

    Not sure what happened here, but I was running stock tire pressures. It looks like the tire just cracked and split. I plugged the area what first started to leak, which worked for around 100 miles, I then put a tube in it. Its also now warped, causing the bike to ride funny. Its cominbg out as soon as the dealer gets a replacement for it. I do like the tire otherwise. Its pretty good tire in most everything as long as you stay far away from mud. Sand is a bit tricky too, but not too bad if you relax and slow down a bit. For me, besides getting damaged, its a perfect fit. Lets hope the 2nd one holds up better.

    I see other spots the carcass is cracking. Does it look like that as you rotate the tire to other spots?
    I wouldn't ride it like that, and it may be a warranty issue for the tire Mfg?

    You'd think they'd warranty it? I didn't even think these tires carried a warranty. It's cracked like that in 3 places. I've parked her until I get a new one installed.
