Ew tyre change
« on: 29 Apr 2016 at 05:20 »
Hi Team,
Could someone tell me how to fit Ensign tyres to my 1926 ew? Is there a special technique?

Cheers,
Simon

Yep there is: https://www.douglasmotorcycles.net/index.php?topic=6160.0

I use Michelin 3.00-21 heavy duty tubes (not the super duper heavy tubes that come in a shoe box!). My only experience with Ensign was when I bought a pair of 28x2 tyres - the tubes with them were complete rubbish. Rapid deflation should be a concern for all of us using BE tyres, so always use high quality tubes.

Thanks Leon,
We will check that link.
I know about the tubes - from Brian - and have quality one ready to fit with the tyres!
Cheers,
Simon
