Dirt riding and technical troubles go hand in hand. Here we'll have tips, tricks and helful hints to keep you on the
tracks longer, go faster and hopefully save you some money. Every now and then we may even have a DIY video,
as we have this week on how to change your own tyres.
Each tip takes quite a while to write up, photograph, etc, but we'll try to add new ones on a regular basis. If there is
something you'd like us to cover, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org - or you can post a question to our user
forums and hopefully one of our knowledgable members will be able to help you.
Fitting Dirt Bike Tyres
Having new tyres fitted is a common thing on a dirt bike,
and it's mostly done at the shop where you buy your tyres.
However, there are places where you get a discount for
buying more than one set of tyres, or you may use a
different set for Summer/Winter or different terrains.
Sometimes you may need to remove and replace your
tyres to fix a tube or something. If you know how to do it
yourself, it can save you a nice little chunk of cash to spend
on other important things, like fuel, helmets and beer.
