16 rear /19 front mousses

hi lads looking to see if anyone knows where and if they've had mousses fitted to a 16 rear and 19'' front (ttr125) i've not used the type thats cut from a roll and not sure that it would fit , anyone have any experience using them and the best place to get them, thanks

Never had them for those sizes but they can be found here http://www.24mx.ie/technomousse-foam...?p=290,350,358. I've never had a split on like them before, always used michelin, but yours wouldn't be a common size. I always use mousses for enduro racing, wouldn't risk getting a puncture

Re: 16 rear /19 front mousses

have michelin in 2 wr's front n rear for the last 2 years now i've just kept lube'n them on each tyre change add store up off the ground, those teckno ones have seem to come down in price since i've last looked, at that price they might be worth a gamble for the wr's next time i'll need to see some realistic reviews first, its just the price of the michelin on both bikes is damn near e550 plus they can be a knuckle breaker putting in with that press yoke for fitting i've had a few levers wing past me face at warp speed a few times, i might just stick to xtra heavy duty tube and a can of that whipped cream stuff for the ttr i cant justify that kinda money

Would you not consider tubes, as i only ever use the ultra heavy duty tubes and never found a problem yet with punctures and i only ever run under 10 psi on all types of terrain.

Or even go tubeless? and you can run as low as you want. Easy to install too once you can get the inner tube up to pressure

looks like a good idea , honestly its my first time seeing them or even hearing about them, still reckon compared to mousses there is a chance of them leaving ya down 10 as the crow flies miles from the van, really geared for mx so as to save that little bit of unsprung weight,

Would recommend the tub liss,I've had flats with them but you can still drive as the sidewall is still supported and the grip is mega
