UNDERSTAND CODE BAN BEFORE BUYING A NEW
Many of us who do not know the code that we use motorcycle tires, hopefully with these tips so
we can better understand:
To determine the size, strength, speed and age of the motorcycle tires
in each tire motor code found. Where will this code give meaning
all the information. In reading the code does not ban motorcycles
can directly be read but there is a trick to read the code
in the tire. So before buying new tires you can find out
when the tire was made or produced, tire strength, size and
speed capability of the tire.
In the motorcycle tire code found in the form of numbers or letters such as
4.60-H-18 or 130/16 67H 4PR. What information can you get from the code
these, you should see below.
There are two kinds of tires are commonly used code is the code imperial and metric.
Like the imperial code 4PR 4.69-H18, then the tire's width or 4.60
in inches), H indicates the speed limit for scooter use
max.100 km / h and N is the max 140 km / hour. S is max 180 km / h, H
is max.210 km / h and V is max.250 km / hour.
Code 18 indicates the wheel diameter / rim in inches. 4PR shows
tire forces based on the strength of the fiber or fabric ply tire rating.
4PR means the use of nylon fabric layer of material in the carcass
indicated the strength equivalent to 4 layers of tire fabric.
For the imperial code, high aspect ratio or the ratio of the tire against
tire width of 00% based on high-value tires with tire width.
While the example of the metric, 130/90-16 67H. 130 indicates the tire width in
milli-meter unit, 90 indicates the tire height to width, 90 means
high ratio of 90% of tire width. If the width is 130 mm high tire
90% x 130 mm = 117 mm. Small aspect ratio that will increase the stability
and vehicle handling.
Code 16 indicates the diameter wheel / rim in inches, 67 showed
maximum allowable load or load index / LI. Li 67 means that the burden
The maximum that can be covered was 307 kg. H indicates the speed limit
the use or the same as the above example. So when you are going to buy tires
with the different brands look at the code and check whether the same
specifications with the previous tires you use.
