By creating the first practical pneumatic tire in 1888, John Boyd Dunlop began more than a tire company—he pioneered an entire industry.
Driven by innovative technology, Dunlop introduced the first use of Kevlar belts in motorcycle tires; produced the first original-equipment radial street tire; and continues to lead the industry with revolutionary firsts, such as the 20-inch front tire for off-road use, and premium tires for mini-bike riders who may be short in stature but are long on talent.
In 1920, ground was broken in Buffalo, New York, for what would become the first Dunlop tire manufacturing facility in the United States. Dunlop is still the only manufacturer to produce motorcycle tires in the U.S.
All Dunlop street tires should be installed with the yellow balance dot at the valve. Wheels may be balanced with spoke nipple weights, lead wire or self-adhesive rim weights. Consult the motorcycle manufacturer for approved wheel weights. Dunlop does not recommend the use of dry or liquid balancers/sealers and will not warrant tires into which these materials have been injected.
Dunlop recommends only permanent plug-patch repairs of small (maximum 1/4-inch diameter) tread area punctures from within the dismounted tire by a qualified tire repair shop or motorcycle dealer. Never perform an exterior repair and never use an inner tube as a substitute for a proper repair. Dunlop does not recommend the use of liquid sealants.
Inspect your tires frequently for damage and always heed warning signs such as vibration, handling instability, rubbing or tire noise that occurs during operation of the motorcycle. Check cold tire pressure frequently with a good quality gauge that holds a reading.
