Right let's carry on.

I can now say I have the FIRST XT1200ZE Super Tenere with a car tyre conversion in South Africa

I did not want to spend money on making the rims look nice before I am 100% sure that the wheel is running where it should.
I waited for the spacer tube between the 2 bearings in the new rear hub.
This morning it was D-Day... I had to go to the DARK SIDE.

So my 2 bearings was in the freezer for a day or so.  When I inserted them it only took a little pressure to drive them into position on the new hub.
Got a rim with tyre on and low and behold the wheel is exactly where it should be.

Then it was a race against time to sand and paint the rim before the shops close to get it fitted..... But I ran out of time.
When I got to my tyre place they were closed already. Race off to Brakpan town and found another still open but everything shut down already.
But the nice lady gave my a new tubless valve at least.

So I got home and managed to fit the tyre to the rim with my bike levers.
Some soapy water and lekker pressure from the compressor I heard a couple of POP's as the tyre seated on the rim.  Good times.

Two small modifications were needed.  The brake disk did not want to slide in...catching on the rim.

Here the fix was to unscrew the disk holder and fit the arm first and then add the pads and the holder.

The second modification needed two bushes and longer bolts.
The brake arm from the caliper to the swingarm needed to move out a bit as the car tyre is a little wider than the motorcycle tyre.

But in the end it all worked out.

Took it for a quick spin in town.  Very happy with the handling.  Once the sidecar is back on I will smile all the way because then I will not have to pay silly money for motorcycle tyres that don't give mileage

Now I will send in my other rims I made up for sandblasting and powder-coating..

Al wat ek kon kry in daai size.
Volgens my is Cooper ook bietjie overrated en dus is die pryse ook mal

Bliksemse mannetjie.
Netjies uitgekom. Sou reken n man sal kan sę. Baie geluk en well done.

Hoe voel die platter band in die draaie soos hy nou is sonder die kar?

Ek het net so n kort stukkie in die dorp gery. Sover geen probleme nie. As hy more nog op banddruk is sal ek haar bietjie gaan ry op hoofweg en draaie.
Maar draaie in dorp was geen probleem gewees nie.

Ek het n pel wat padfiets ry en hy beweer hy voel die platplek op n tyre wat langpad loop.
Sy bynaam het Francios square tyre geraak ek ek glo hpm nounog nie.
Jy ry nou met n propperse plat band, so ek sal dink dat op hoer spoed indraaie moet daar n verskil wees

Sekerlik sal jy VOEL dis anders in die draaie. Maar as ek dit rustiger vat soos OU MENSE behoort te ry en ek TRUST my band dan sal ek om die draai kom.

SUPER CHUFFED !!!

I do not see WHY one has to ride on an EXPENSIVE motorcycle tyre when you can have this.

Very happy with the results.

I can lean into a corner without a problem.

Got the tyre up to 2.8 and went for it.

Hapiness

If memory serves me, adventure rider forum has a thread on this. Think the V Strom. Still leans into corners with the car rubber. Glad this is working out.

The biggest problem occurs when you fit a car tyre to a motorcycle rim. The PROFILE is different apparently and the 2 units does not match well.
But in my case it is a car tyre on a car rim so that problem does not exist.

I have met a guy years ago in Voortrekker road at the old motorcycle shop (workshop was on second floor)
Well know guy - everyone seemed to know him: His name Jimmy and he was riding a Yamaha V-max with a car tyre.
Very big man - a real gentle giant! I asked him why and he said that he just can't afford to change bike tyres every other week at the going price and he loved straight line acceleration which the V-Max was know for. It looked rather good as well but back then I did not asked what rim he was using.
It makes a lot of sense and I am sure there are many more examples. Bike tyres is really very expensive especially when you look at the killos the give.
With the sidecar this makes a lot more sense - maybe it will take a while loner to heat up on a cold day.
Would be interesting to see how many kilometres this tyre will give, but my guess is 40 000km+
