We have a store called "Discount Motorcycle Tires" in Pasadena Texas. They have tyres that will fit the Majesty. I do believe that they will mail order them as well. I shall try to find the URL or an email/phone for them and post it for you. These are the folks who were kind enough to reseat the bead on my tyres when I was having the handling problems with the bike. I also purchased my mesh summer jacket there.

I don't want tires that are "cracked"-not in the tread and especially not the sidewalls- on my scooters. or motorcycles. They are unsafe,period. Having relatively small contact patches, I want to make sure the tires are fully capable of doing what they need to do. I usually got 8K miles on the rear of the Majesty, but I replace them BEFORE getting to the wear bars.

Agreed. Not on two wheels. From my understanding, dry rot is not repaired through caulking visible surface cracks. Tires have a short lifespan, which I pay attention to in order to keep my own lifespan long. :)

I had a blowout at around 70 MPH on a rear tire once. That was an A ride in any park. The tire would flop over & the bike would veer off & then the tire flopped over again & the bike took off the other way. It was hard afterward to walk the bike with my pants full of s.... .. - for real. That was over fifty years ago & remained in my memory for a LONG time. I finally realized that it is much less likely now with tubeless tires. They are MUCH less likely to blow & if they did they would stay on the rim much better. I have always wondered how much worse it would have been with a front tire?

The DOT WWYY sidewall imprint defines the birth date of manufacture: WW = week number, YY = last 2 digits of the year.

I replace MC tires either when worn or when 5 years old or more. Worn defined by wear bar guidance or uneven wear patterns (cupping, center wear, ..., ...), or a puncture.
