Tire Tube troubles

I'm buying new tires and am looking at getting new tubes also but I cannot find tubes that will fit the front tire can anyone shed some light or tell me where I can get tubes that fit?

Is the front tire on a Thruxton an 18 or 19?
I've seen it listed as both. On one web page listing specs, it has a 19 rim and an 18 tire.

The urge to buy terrorizes.

Motorcycle Superstore. I buy the Michelin tubes, expensive but so far never had a problem.

Ride safe,

Agreed, the Michelins are good quality, and I'm not about to go cheap on what connects me to the planetary surface.

Best extra 5 bucks ever spent.
