MICHELIN Bib MousseTM  fitment recommendations

MICHELIN recommendations

  • MICHELIN Bib MousseTM are intended for Rally, Enduro and MX use.
     
  • MICHELIN Bib MousseTM should not be stored regularly at temperatures over 30°C, and temperatures above 40°C should be avoided all together.
     
  • MICHELIN Bib MousseTM are designed for off road competition use fitted to Michelin tires. The successful fitting and performance of MICHELIN Bib MousseTM in tyre brands other than Michelin cannot be guaranteed.
     
  • Not designed for use on the public highway (NHS). The maximum speed for a tyre with a MICHELIN Bib MousseTM fitted is 129 km/h (80mph).
     
  • The date of first use of the MICHELIN Bib MousseTM should be no later than 18 months from manufacture.
     
  • The MICHELIN Bib MousseTM should be used within 6 months of first fitting. However, the lifespan of MICHELIN Bib MousseTM varies considerably depending on the intensity of usage and the discipline practiced. For example, it will be much shorter for Motocross than for Enduro.
     
  • Before a fast stage, we recommend you warm up the tyre and the MICHELIN Bib MousseTM progressively at a moderate speed.
     
  • Apply Bib MousseTM gel every time you put on or take off a MICHELIN Bib MousseTM, both new and used:

 

  1. To avoid degradation due to excessive heat, distribute the gel inside the tyre without putting it on the tyre beads or the rim at the rate of ½ tube on the front MICHELIN Bib MousseTM and 1 full tube on the rear MICHELIN Bib MousseTM
     
  2. To limit the risk of punctures due to pinching in off-road use (motocross, enduro, rally...), use the gel with an inner tube, at the rate of ½ tube per tyre.

 

Operating mode: demounting a MICHELIN Bib MousseTM

  • Place the wheel on a fitting cradle or support.
  • Unseat the first bead and lubricate abundantly.
  • Put 3 levers in position, 10 cm apart. Remove the bead by inclining the 3 levers one after the other. Keep only one lever, straighten it then turn the tyre on the wheel to completely remove the bead.
  • Finish removing the tyre by hooking the 2nd bead with a lever.
  • Extract the MICHELIN Bib MousseTM insert from the tyre

Operating mode: mounting a MICHELIN Bib MousseTM

  • The rim must be in good condition. Check the spokes to prevent abnormal friction between the MICHELIN Bib MousseTM and wheel.
  • Position a rim tape inside the wheel or, failing this, a piece of adhesive tape covering the spoke nuts.
  • Place the wheel on the fitting unit.
  • Place the MICHELIN Bib MousseTM gel inside the tyre. We recommend applying it with a brush (Avoid getting the gel on the tyre beads: risk of rotation on the rim).
  • If necessary, apply vertical pressure on the tire to prize the beads apart.
  • Position the MICHELIN Bib MousseTM inside the tyre.
  • Lubricate the first tyre bead and the part of the MICHELIN Bib MousseTM that will be in contact with the rim (a Michelin liquid lubricant should be used).
  • Make sure there is no valve on the rim.
  • Put the first bead onto the rim. Start by positioning it in the rim well then use a fitting lever if necessary. Insert the MICHELIN Bib MousseTM as far as it will go into the rim well.
  • Lubricate the 2nd tyre bead.
  • First put the bead onto the rim using a fitting lever. Immobilize this lever and then use a 2nd lever around 30 cm from the first to continue inserting the bead. Immobilize this 2nd lever then use a 3rd one to continue positioning of the bead, etc... until the bead is fully in position.
  • To seat the beads of the tire correctly against the rim flanges, it is recommended to inflate it to approximately 3.5 bars using a rubber TL valve. The valve is fixed on the inflation connector and simply positioned over the valve hole in the rim.
