Hey guys,

 

Anyone know what sort of tubes are in a stock 2012 WR450F?

I need to change the rear tyre for the first time (still has stock rear tyre) and was thinking about getting a

heavy duty tube but the current tube has nothing wrong with it, never goes down, never had a flat.

 

Is this because they already come out with heavy duty tubes?

 

Also have any of you ever tried a Pirelli Heavy duty tube?

I run Pirelli tyres and they're great so I assume their tubes are awesome as well, would like to know what you guys think though.

 

Cheers,

Nath.

Should be thin stock Dunlop type tubes. Not thick.

Ok thanks guys, will definitely throw a heavy duty tube in as I don't feel like fixing a flat in the bush.

Be aware that heavy and ultra heavy tubes generate a lot of heat and friction when used at speed, especially when the pressures are low. Just something to be aware of and keep an eye on :)
