Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

That's odd. What kind of bead does it have?

A blowout like that can be caused by a faulty tire, or by a tube becoming lodged between the rim and bead, but usually you won't get far before it balloons out and explodes.

What kind of rim strips did you use? If they interfere with the bead/wheel interface (like those stretched rubber bands when they move or age), it can cause blow-offs. I have been using Gorilla Tape for a year and it is awesome.
