Sorry Plantpot, unless you mean Perth in Scotland, I can't help you!  ;) 

Surely any motorcycle dealer will fit a tyre - I got mine from my ex-Hyosung dealer (Continental Conti Motion, although that's for a GT not a GV) - just need to phone around a few to get the best price??  Alternatively buy a tyre (shop or internet) and get a bike shop to fit it - my local mechanic charges a tenner if you have the wheel off the bike.....

Unless I'm missing some complication from your post..... ???

Thank you for taking time to get back to me. Ive only had the bike for a week and Im 56 years old!!!!

I can blu print a V8 engine for you, I know cars, I definately dont know bikes. I was asking more from the " are these tyres an unusual size" aspect, sort of expecting a local to chime in with " oh yeah there weird, I went to billy bobs in Perth and he fixed me up" or " dont go here they'll rip you off".

All's good I think I have it sorted now. A bike shop here in Perth, Western Australia is changing the tyre for me at the weekend.

Plantpot,

Depending on how hands on you want to get, you can buy a tyre online, or shop around and find a good price, then fit it yourself using plastic garden stakes to roll the tyre over the rim.

Balancing on bikes is static balancing, i.e. you put the axle on two blocks, make it perfectly level, then spin it and see where it stops, mark it with chalk, spin it again. If it stops at the same place, bluetak in place a small weight on the opposite side of the rim. Keep doing this until the point it stops at starts to randomize.

For someone who's 56 year old your patience is in need of some work more than that tyre. In case you don't know those 20 views could well of been bots. I wont go into that.

Instead, I'll answer your question: http://bfy.tw/APkP

yeah, not just that, but maybe considering this is an international forum........
If people who view your post is neither:
1> local to you
or
2> even knows where it is

why would they comment on where to get tyres from in YOUR local area....


before hostility and criticism, try to google the problem: Find the number of a local tyre fitter. ask them if they have in stock. ask them if they know anyone else local that might have in stock , and how much for them to fit it (always best to keep them onside with the suggestion that you may bring business to them if they help you find a tyre). Alternatively, try a motorcycle shop. ANY will do. if they dont have theyre gonna know somewhere.

asking remote strangers for local knowledge is kinda silly.
