Tube type or tubeless
I'm new to motorcycles but managed to put on 20,000 km (12,000 m) last season and now need new tires for my Yamaha VStar XVS65a classic.
The tires on there are Dunlop D404 130/90-16 front and Dunlop D404170/80-15 back - both are marked tube type.
All I can find on the 'net are the D404 tubeless and the dealers all say just to use a tube.
When I ask the 'net about doing this the standard reply is to reduce the speed rating by 1 category which really isn't al that important for the speeds on this bike.
I've emailed Dunlop but no reply - I'm wondering does Dunlop still make the D404 tube type?????
Any suggestions or am I over thinking this!!!!
