Re: b0t20 rear

I had a 20 rear and 10 front. When the front wore, I replaced it with a 12, Last week, I replaced the 20 rear with a 12.

I'll have to say that the bike handles a lot better than it did with the 20. There's just so much more grip. The 20 lasted about twice as long as a 12, but those where not as fun miles as the 12.

Going from the 12 to the 20 was not nearly as obvious as going from the 20 to the 12 for some reason...

Re: b0t20 rear

Yep, that's the difference between a 'sport-touring' tire and a 'trackday' tire.

I will be using a 020 rear next time. All my crazy riding is saved for the track.

Re: b0t20 rear

I've had decent results with the 010/020 combo on the VFR. They are the same rubber compound, just the 020 has deeper tread......

They do feel a bit less 'grippy', but I think its actually due to the flexure of the taller tread blocks, and that they warm up slower because of the increased mass....

Re: b0t20 rear

Actually I think it is the BT010 and BT012 that have the same compound and the 020 is the touring tire. I just mounted a set of 010's in place of the stock 012's and the 010 has more tread pattern. I don't know if it's deeper or not but they feel great.

Another great site to visit.

020 is the sport touring tire....but same compound as the 010....the 012 is their super-sport tire, and has a grippier compound

Re: b0t20 rear

FYI,

According to Bridgestone : BT010, BT012, BT012SS, re: 929 and 954.

The BT020 is not a tyre that Bridgestone recommends for the 929 or the 954. However Bridgestone does suggest the 020 rear only for the 1996-1999 fireblade (918 I think).

The 929 can use the 010, 012 or 012SS.

The 954 should NOT use the 010. It's not a recommended tyre for the 954. The 954 should use either the 012 or the 012SS. Or even the 011, for the front only.

BT010 info.
BT012 info.
BT012SS info.

Bridgestone Tyre Selector.


This applies to the UK 929 and 954, perhaps the tyre requirements in other regions are different. All information is taken from the official Bridgestone website.

Re: b0t20 rear

I had no problems with my 020 rear but like the Avon 45/46 even better.
