    Unhappy Bike slipping issue?

    AOA!
    I am noticing that my bike is slipping too much and today me & my friend and (other two friends who were on the other bike),my friend was driving my bike,we were on our way to nathiagali when suddenly out of no where,on a bend,the rear tyre slipped and we fell off,the road was wet,but we were @ 20km/h and in 2nd gear,we did not braked or anything suddenly out of nowhere the bike slipped ,we were confused about what happened :/

    The bike is zxmco 70cc,driven 1.8k km's,the tyres are pretty much new,what tyres you people suggest which have maximum road grip and don't slip on wet surfaces?

    p.s: me & my friend are fine with only cuts & bruises

    The men are back. @TGT.

    dear these bikes just are plain commuter bikes, so don't try to do sportsbike like cornering on them.
    good to read that you are fine.
    post pics of your tyre, may be tyre tread design isn't good for wet grip.

    Sometimes, the alignment of tyres may also be the cause of slipping so check that as well.

    Keep tyre air pressure low.. front about 25-28 PSI and rear 32-35 Psi max.
    Take extra care n wet conditions specially when the rain has just started and the dirt has changed into mud, later when the rain washes away the mud and water is freely flowing on the road you will gain some traction back!

    Last night it rained in Karachi and the road were still wet when I left home for work early in the morning 8:30am. I have been riding bikes for a long time and have quite a lot of experience riding in wet conditions. However I dont know what happened today. The road were way too slippery. ALHAMDULILLAH I manage to reach my destination without any accident but my rear tyre was losing grip and going side ways every time I use the rear brake even the slightest. It was not normal. I saw several bikers slipping today and believe me they were way too many than on a normal raining day. Did anyone from Karachi experience the same today?????
    Bikes don't leak oil, they mark their territory.

    that's weird... i didn't notice any unusual thing... except my rear tyre which was splashing water like garden shower .. but it does happens after first rain of season when all dried up oil on roads comes over water.. usually when there's not enough rain to wipe it off...

    bro u can change tyre on time even if tyre thread is good.. becoz old hard tyres have less road grip.plus avoid sharp turns and uneven roads in rainy weather

    Yes I know the oil comes up! But this oil usually makes a certain patch of road slippery. But Yesterday almost 70-80% of the road was slippery. I forgot to mention but not only was I losing traction while braking but also my 78cc chonda was giving a hard time to my rear tyre on standing start. It was like I was riding a sports bike which a heavy foot. Something weird with the roads yesterday morning.

    Dear Hmaza_xeg, It's not a big issue, Your wheel may not be balanced.
    Secondly, you may check the rear wheel spokes by griping spokes in one hand
    and then pressing your fingers you may check that while the spokes are loosen or not. I
    f the spokes are loosen then get tighten it from the expert.

    Also one of the reason of this problem in your bike may be the R
    UBBERS INSIDE THE REAR WHEEL called "WHEEL HUB BUFFER RUBBERS",
    these rubbers may have broken so by installing new rubbers your problem will be solved.
