long term storage for tyres?

Category : General Bike Chat

long term storage for tyres?

so i recently went on the search for tyres for my fzr 600 for the first time, knowing that the rear tyre will be hard found (150/60 R18) did hours of research on possible brands and i was limited to the bridgestone battleaxe in cotters, thats grand they came in the post today. but on the website i had the choice of a BT 090 or the BT 092, the 090 being a softer gripier tyre, the 092 being longer lasting.


when i went to order the 092 they said Bridgestone stopped making them and id have to get the 090.


so the thing im wondering is how long until they stop producing the 090 leaving me very very stuck for choice? so here is my question:


how long could you store a tyre without it getting dry rot/ going hard by taking all precautions? from looking online it seems to be constant temp, no sunlight, storing in bags (or vacuum sealed) and possibly putting on some tyre shine type of stuff


now i know i’m taking this a bit far but its more out of curiosity more than anything else :lbhbh:


also is there any way of being notified of a tyre being discontinued before it happens?


cheers lads

Fazer 1999 spark plug seized

Category : The Workshop

Fazer 1999 spark plug seized

Got the fazer back from a bike shop.
I had to get plugs changed and carbs sorted as water got into it.
Anyway, 2nd plusg is seized. They tried special spray that goes minus 40 and everything to get it out but it won’t budge.
They said you will need to drill and tap it and this will cost at least 300.
He said it’s not worth fixing though as bike has 87 thou on it. The final bill for repair could go higher.
Can this be done cheaper? Has anyone done it before? Anywhere else that anybody could recommend in Dublin.
Mechanic said it’s a pig of a job.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
