Question
and ricky is back, and want to go supermoto

hello

back again .
I now have 2 ricky, one with a XL-5 motor, and one with a velineon system.
For the Xl-5 one, I tried to remove the gyro, and tested it on a (big) parking lot :
it is great !!
just, the back knobby tire does not give much grip, so, I was wondering if there would be a way to fit a supermoto tire on it?

I thought I could cut every knob, one by one, but it does not seems a good solution

if you ever did it on your, any idea welcome .
do you think a VMX/ARX supermoto tire would fit?

You can cut the knobs off the stock tire, then stretch a 1/8 scale buggy tire over it.

I did it years ago with a paddle tire for my Ricky bike and it worked good.
