I got new rubber for my bike. Cheng Shin 26"X2.125" $8.5 each. Turn out that it was a bit fat but OK for now. See how it runs.
Hard to believe, but the 1st day I ride to work with this new rubber, I get a fucking flat with a huge nail! Fixed at work but had to walk a mile and bus to work....
It rides good. I will try a bit thinner one next, say 1.8" or so.

The sound mat between rear seat and engine bay was failing-meaning the foam was no longer being foam after so many years, so removed them. Took about 1 hour to peel, vacuum and peel some more. Bought replacement pads. One claim it is OEM part but it was not stiff and rubbery like the original I had, the other one, I bought Dynamat clone with silver lining. I wanted to muffle as much as possible since lately I do long drive to city once a month or so. Thus layered those two pads and 3M-ed onto the engine bay. New pads did eliminate high-pitched engine sound and some mechanical noise but not as much as I hoped for. $40X2=$80
