Part: Rim Strip - 18" or 19"
Why You Need This: Rim strips are thin pieces of material that are placed between the tire and the rim on a motorcycle. They serve to protect the inner tube from getting pinched or punctured by the spoke nipples or the edges of the rim. Without rim strips, the sharp edges of the rim and the spoke nipples can rub against the inner tube, causing damage over time. Rim strips also help to prevent the tube from getting caught in the spoke nipples during installation, which can cause the tube to get punctured or pinched. In short, rim strips provide a protective barrier between the rim and the inner tube, helping to prevent flats and extending the life of the tire and tube.
