So when I go on saturday to get me some tires. Right now the bike has 180's on the rear. If I changed to the 190's it wouldnt make a dfference at all. It would just be a wider tire right??

stick w/ the 180;s they handle better.

i wouldn't recommend the M1s to you though, wear to fast........look into the the Z-3s or pilot roads. ALOT longer life.

so you get these.......they wear in 4000 mi.......$160+mount/balance $200 drive out

get a longer wearing tire, 8000mi, for $230 drive out.

what makes more sense.

your not going to utilize the AWESOME traction these tires have yet.......so do you need it?

people think they need the latest in greatest but in reality they're not using 50% of the potential, but they have the best......YEAH!!!


michelin pilot roads
meztler z-4s (****edited****)

for you.

I love the rear power I have on now! 2 tracks days and 5 BRR's and still plenty of thread and grip left in them.
