Thanks for another option, I was planning on fabbing a new fender anyway so this should be ok, I have my heart set on two 4.10's, probably the K81, the AM9 roadrunner looks great, but I dont find any info from bullet owners. I like the stance of the bike I showed, so il be looking to lower the whole bike too. Il get some photos up and start a thread when i get started, since riding time is more or less over anyway. I'm in the UK by the way.

my inspiration!

Hey Bare-

Bike-Bandit only shows the 90/90-19 size as a tubeless front tire.  Did you just mount one with a tube?

You can still mount a tube (and need to) with a tubeless tire on a spoked wheel.  I've done it in the past with no problems.

I have put a MRF Meteor 110/90x19 at the rear, it does wonders in the dirty/slushy part and holds up pretty good at highway speeds.

Have K70 on front of my G5 with sidecar attached.  2800 miles (4500km) and there's not much tread left in the center so looking to replace it with a tire with better tread life, harder rubber in center.  Attribute wear to k70's softer rubber and extra weight of sidecar when braking.  Of the tires mentioned which ones are the best mileage wise?  Recommendations i've had are: Michilin pilot active and Bridgestone s11 spitfire.    Thanks,Al

You can use tubeless tires with a tube with no problem. I've been doing it for years. You may not want to use a tube tire as a tubeless, though. They may pop off the rim. The tubeless tires have a stiffer rim bead. Or to answer the question, yes I have a tubeless tires on the Goose with tubes. Had 'em on the Enfield, too. The new Cafe Racers come with the same tires, w/ tubes.
