A. “TUBELESS” Mark

The tire and rim form a leakproof unit by making airtight contacts at the tire chamfers and the rim flanges instead of using an inner tube.

WARNING

Installing a tube inside a tubeless- type tire can create excessive heat build up that can damage the tube and cause rapid deflation. The tires, rims, and air valves on this motorcycle are designed only for tubeless type wheels. The recommended standard tires, rims, and air valves must be used for replacement.

Do not install tube-type tires on tubeless rims. The beads may not seat properly on the rim causing tire deflation. Do not install a tube inside a tubeless tire. Excessive heat build-up may damage the tube causing tire deflation.
