first time i practice doing stoppies i get flat tire.i didnt think i hit the ground that hard bringing back tire down but i guess i did.pretty sure its the tube nothing in tire and wont take air at all.found a shut down factory ive been practicing in. i learned to do 2nd to 3rd wheelies which was kinda hard gotta keep throttle almost wide open no low end at all.right when i was having fun something breaks bullshitaki.:rant::damn:

I dont think coming down hard on a nose wheelie would pop the tire? Maybe it could I dont know but this just seems interesting. I put some of them down rather hard and the only thing that happens to me is the fuel pump stops picking up fuel (husky) and I look like a superetard at the stop sign.

I would get a new tube...

I would even go as far as wiping out the tire inside...and instead of a rim strap I would use duct tape, and make sure everything is extremely clean :thumbup:

i was leaning that way dont feel like changing tubes all the time.my rim is 3.5 inches should i get a 3.5x17 tube because when i look them up it says order one size smaller than the tire idk?thanks for the tips once its on i wouldnt think it would need to be balanced. i remember a thread on balancing a little while back.
