The michelin Pilot is a great tyre and has a very rounded profile. This makes it great for turning in but also gives the appearance that it's narrow. It will be 130mm wide but doesn't look it.
I think Aerostich makes a 250 conversion for small blocks.
I haven't compared wheel sizes between the B750 and the say, late-model Stones etc. with the cast wheels. Any differences there?!?Where's Muzz and Sign and the usual suspects that should be chiming in on this?!?
Got 21000km out of the original Sport Demons and probably could have squeaked out another couple thousand. 26000km out of the Avon Roadriders which still had plenty of tread but had some cracking in the tread grooves. Repaced it with a Fullbore which only has 2000km on it. Cheap tire but so far seems to handle just fine. Time will tell.Cheers, Tim
21,000kms from a Demon!! I got about 6-8,000 on the rear and about 11,000 on the front.I went for the last blast to Akaroa today, about 110 miles with a few hills and stuff. I have officially got rid of the chicken strips on the rear at least.... may have some bearing on how the rear wears..
I wonder if your pavement in the Southern part of the world might be a bit more abrasive than ours up here in Canada. I ride my B750 HARD and really am quite astonished how well tires stand up.
Thanks for the nod, Kev.I found the Metzler Lasertech's, which were the factory tires on my '09 Classic, to be twitchy on dirt or grooved surfaces. Now I'm using Bridgestone Battleax;front 100/80-80M/C 53H, rear 130/70-17M/C 62H These are low profile tires, and slightly reduce the bikeís height in a painless and easy way. I don't think this size is available anywhere else. Note these are bias ply, which I like (call me a throw-back.).Joe
I order Michelin Activ sport touring 140/80-17. Will report after installed on Tuesday.
