Hi, I know this has been covered but the last post seems to have been last year. Anyone any updated recommendations for tyres for the Swing? Mine's a 2010, currently still on the factory fits of Bridgestone Hoops which I think are fine in the dry and just ok in the wet.

Also, can anyone provide instructions as to removing the rear wheel? I don't have a manual but pretty competent DIY mechanic.

cheers

You're probably overqualified. Smile  Seriously using the procedure referenced by The Bern, I was able to do it. Therefore it should be easy for anyone with any ability. sunny

Damhunter, i have tried Metzelers, Perelli Diablo's and Mitchelin tyres, i have gone back to Bridgestones. In my opinion, they are the best tyre for all year round performance and wear.Smile

FWIW, if you can raise the swing above an open area (I have a removable panel on my motorcycle lift under the rear tire), you can work the rear tire out without removing the muffler. You have to play with it a bit to do it and won't be able to do it if your swing is just on the ground instead of raised.
