Re: Tire Time for me

Put a 120/70/17 up front. Why do you ask, what size tires are on your bike now?

Re: Tire Time for me

Im not sure off the top off my head - its at home - its raining. LOL. I havent had it long and never made a mental not fo the size. They are Mich Pilots - I remeber that. Is that factory on the 54 - knowing the guy i got it from (many thanx to him for the big flat area from burnouts on the back) they are factory. Only had like 2700 miles on it when I got it.

Re: Tire Time for me

Get the colored tires in yellow and try them out for ND4SPD, he's been looking to get a set, only thing stopping him is a review

Re: Tire Time for me

I wouldn't change the front tire size,most people with 60 or 65 front tires switch to the 70 profile for better contact patch and front end feel(according to some magazines).I buy 1805517 for the rear because they are less $ and no negatives that I've noticed.

Someone on another board just bought some (non colored)tomahawks for $150(tax and shipping incl.) and he's happy with them so far.He bought them because another on the same board races on them and is happy.Judging from the comments,many more might give them a go.

Re: Tire Time for me

I think I will take the split and go 120/70 front and 190/50 rear. Little bit of both worlds or is this nuts?

They are the original sizes, so yeh, go for it. Try the new Bridgestone BT014 .. I know I will be very soon! They look good and reviewers and rated them well too.
