Do you know if it's possible to get 90/90-21 tyre in Indonesia (preferably Java)? I don't really fancy going into Jakarta though, but will do if I have to. And read that Bandung might be a good place for big bike bits but no 100% info on tyres etc.
I found a couple of Indonesian tyre manufacturers which seem to have nice dual-purpose looking tread patterns but I don't think they do 90/90-21. Any help or advice will be much appreciated.. or I might just get a new front in Penang before sending the bike over to Medan but I don't like being wasteful
Thanks very much in advance and might bump into some of you ;)
I will ask around. 21" rim is not a common size rim here, but tire that size is available here. One place that I just asked has 90/100-21 Dunlop. I'll let you know when I find one.
If while you're here you need a new front tire and can't find a new one, give me a call, you can use my tire.
