Rim lock installed but tube still slid
Posted 01 July 2011 - 02:30 AM
Any suggestions? I'm going to order a Motion Pro rim lock and new tube today.
I did go back and put the broken rubber band back on the rim and covered it with duct tape. Just took these pics of the rim lock first.

If I can't find a Motion Pro today at one of the local shops, I'll try and scrape off some of the rubber coating and give that a try so I can at least ride this holiday weekend. Just an idea.

I run around 20-25psi on the street, and I've never had a issue, even with my 108cc stroker setup, even when I drop it into gear, and ride as crazy as I can lol

I did shift the tube, but had a pin hole elsewhere on the tube. It is just a stock motor in the 02 XR50 that I just bought. And it all happened while I was carrying my 4 & 5 yr old kids with me (separately), so about 240 lbs total on the bike (with HD springs front and back). I don't think the location of the rim lock should matter? I guess I should have put the time lock across from the valve stem, but have read of different locations that worked.... I have not had a chance to ride the bike again, but think I'll be fine now. And will run 25 psi too.
The Motion Pro VS the EMGO
So I learned my lesson on just waiting and ordering the recommended part instead of using the cheap part that was in stock. I actually called around and found that a smaller local KTM shop stocks the better parts, so I know who to deal with now on certain parts.
