What do they put inside of the rear tire's from the factory? I pulled mine off to swap them and noticed that there is something definetly in the tire's. Just the rear. I have never even had to put air in to them since I bought it new at the dealership.

some how it does. And thats what you can hear rolling around inside the tyre. The dust forms a perfect ball that keeps getting bigger as it goes around.

Not sure how they get in there, and not loose the air, but they do, must be from sliding thru the corners on the gas. I have had them almost the size of golf balls.

not really sure but i heard that the factory put those in there for to balance the tire.not positve. but i dont see how dust can go in when you have that pressure pushing out,if that was the case then you would have to pump the tire up all the time.i had those in my stock 400ex tires too,front and rear.my .02 iam not tryin to cause an argument or anything. :D

Rabbit Terds ahahhahaha......all it is is dirt getting inside, if you ride agressive and hit turns hard, it will let a little into your bead that will work its way inside the tire. Then it becomes a tumbler, that rolls the dirt and collects it into perfect balls.

wow...it is not dirt in your tire...have any of you ever taken your stock bead off before? it is not easy & no dirt ccan go inside....that noise you hear is this slippery stuff they put on the bead at the factory so it slides on when they air it up...then it dries & becomes hard...when you ride fast it comes into the tire & forms into little balls...its little like rubber glue pellets

LOL... I believe it is the rubber pellets.. Those tires are on there so tight that I don't see it possible to get dirt in there.
