Tube sizes

Putting some TKC80’s on my XR soon, I need tubes too. I’m thinking of going with the Maxxis extra heavy tubes. My front tire will be a 90/90-21, and my rear will be a 120/90-18. Tube sizes seem a little odd. Can I put a 120/100/18 tube on a 120/90/18 with no problem? I’m thinking I can. And I’m assuming a 90/100-21 tube will fit my 90/90-21 front as well? I’m thinking just a little extra sidewall won’t hurt anybody, but those are the closest sizes available for my tire….

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 25 February, 2018

A sharp-looking tracker-style Harley Street Rod, a production-ready eCub from Shanghai Customs, a peek at the new Curtiss Warhawk, and the stunning new Magni Filo Rosso limited edition.

In China, the petrol powered scooter has all but gone the way of the Dodo, meaning the majority of their 2-wheelers are powered via silent, efficient electrons….

Church of MO: Ducati 748

Today’s reading, brethren, comes from the Book of Luke, which tells us, “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” Hence the Ducati 748, little sister of the now-legendary 916, which reaches the age of consent this year. On a race track, the 916 was the trustiest motorcycle of the day. On the street, where sheer horsepower is seldom the key to happiness, the 748 and its higher-revving L-Twin extended an even…

Power Trip: XTR Pepo tackles the Harley Sportster

There aren’t many builders with a strike rate like Pepo Rosell. Since the early days of his Radical Ducati shop, he’s been turning out several sleek, lightweight cafe racers every year. Pepo is not a Harley specialist, though: his favored platforms are more compact and sporty. But his Dyna from a couple of years ago made waves, and led to the commission of this extremely rapid Sportster. “The call came in from a foreign client,” Pepo tells us, “after he saw my ‘Gabrielle’ Harley Dyna in Bike EXIF.” (Gabrielle made…

Canadian Content: Kawasaki Z900RS Cafe and Honda CB300R

Being the Canada-based staffer of a primarily U.S.-targeted site like Motorcycle.com, it’s hard not to feel jealous of my American colleagues sometimes. In between minding the three-hour time difference between me and the other MO editors, and remembering to omit the “u” in words like “color” and “rumor”, I get to read about their exploits in sunny California from my desk in grey gray Toronto. Okay, I admit, I’m not actually as bitter as I made that sound. I’m more upset that Canada was shut out of the medals in…
