I'm sure there is a lot of good info on tire inner tubes. Could someone give me a link. The search isn't coming up with much.

Thanks

Here is one I just found.
Also:
Front tube Yamaha Part Number: 94212-18188-00
Rear tube Yamaha Part Number: 94218-14251-00
Bridgestone and probably Dunlop make tubes for TW tires,ask a dealer.
I am not sure about the size of them.

Any 18" tube will work for the front- 120/130 width is an extremely common rear tire size on dirt bikes.

The rear is kind of an oddball size but Bridgestone does make a thicker HD version.

Thicker tubes add significant rotating mass, which has a noticeable effect on performance and stability (particularly in the front).

Unless you are running very low tire PSI and on nasty trails, I'd advise to stick with standard tubes. Thicker tubes do nothing to resist road debris puncture (nails ect) anyway. HD tubes help resist pinch-flats from rough terrain at low pressures/aggressive riding.

Slime or Stan's are far more effective resistance to road punctures. I mean you can still pick up a nail, but it'll substantially slow the leak so you can make it home and not stuck on the side of the road.
