Here's a new question. The liner says "17" on it, but I have a 16" wheel. Is this the wrong liner?

hang it on the wall and admire it.
Replace it with a heavy tape, like duct tape. That solves a LOT of problems.

 Some HDs run 17 inch front wheels . Sounds like the dealer that installed the tire cut a corner , not good . The last time I paid a shop to mount a tire , they installed a 17 inch tube on an 18 inch wheel , led to a whole series of issues, including a flat tire and out of pocket expenses . The shop is out of business , wonder why .

I'm going to make them put a 16" strip on it, just in case.

I masked the wheel, and now I'm painting it with Rust Reformer. Hoping for the best.

I got out my professional painting tools and went to work. I used the finest Chinese trash bag Home Depot sells.

I was worried that the product would get on the chrome in the wrong places, but it flakes right off, so I guess it only sticks to rust.

I would recommend a michelin Airstop tube, they are good quality, and very thick. after the rust reformer you used, just talc up the tube real good, and it should be fine.

I got my Jackal out of the shop, and today I took it for a ride to Miami Beach. I was so paranoid from having three flats on the Harley, I thought I had a flat tire every time I hit a lump in the pavement. During the last three miles, I was positive the rear tire was squirming, and I limped home. Naturally, there was nothing wrong with it.

Before this, on my last four rides, I had three flats and a battery that went dead because the idle speed was too law. Four bad rides in a row will really get into your head.
