Dunlop tire

Recommended Posts

I have a 2003 Sherco 2 .9. I am changing  tires on it and I am not able to get the bead to seat. It seats on both sides except for about 6 inches. Has anybody had trouble mounting the  Dunlop 803GP tires. I am having the trouble with the rear the front mounted ok. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

It could take 80 psi. Lube well and try more air. Best if you have a clip on your chuck to stand back.

Lubricate with WD40

Use plenty of washing up liquid.  Agree with up to 80psi to make it pop.  Brand new tire?  Are you sure that it is not fully seated, even though it didn't pop?  (The OLD IRC tires did not pop, even though they were fully seated, then promptly deflated when you hit a bump - they were too slack).

You can buy a lifetime supply of the proper  tyre lube from a major tyre supplier for less than a tenner.
