Tubes & Tyres & a Drop of Goop

I’m always a bit nervous about my tyres. I’ve had a few punctures in the past with one blowout throwing me down the duel carriageway at approximately 60mph and with roads getting such heavy use and many hazards for the Scooterist, we need as much help as we can get. So nowadays I try to use the best inner tubes & tyres I can get my hands on. For inner tubes I’m using Maypol from Just Lambretta, which have the valve off set from the centre and the valve itself is at an angle that means it will clear the fork link bolt.

The tyres I’m using are Michelin City Grip Winter. According to Michelin It has a 62mph speed rating and have a fast warm up with grip for fresh or melting snow.


Lastly, I add Goop. I’ve used it for a number of years now and I’ve had no tyre or inner tube malfunctions or mishaps. I check the tyres regularly and they hold their pressure well.
