Running in Tyres
The running-in period allows the tyre to settle itself onto the wheel rim, serves to “scuff-in” the tread surface and allows the rider to adjust to the feel and handling of the new tyres.
After fitment, ensure the tread surface is not contaminated in any way. Clean off any fitting lubricant, buff around the tread circumference with a dry cloth and ensure the label is removed.
Whenever new tyres are fitted, the motorcycle should be ridden cautiously and the tyres not subjected to maximum power or speed for the first 100 miles. Avoid sudden acceleration, maximum braking or hard cornering and particular care should be taken on wet or greasy road surfaces. After 100 miles, the tyres should be checked to ensure the correct seating and inflation.
