R1 tyres

I'm in the market for some tyres for my 2010. I use it for weekend blasts and the odd trackday. I'd love some GP Racers, But ive got quite a low budget. For my money im looking at BT016 PRO or the old michelin pilot power 2CT. Which would be better, or can you recommend any others?

cbr600fl jellymould tyres

Hey all I currently have 150/70 zr15 tyre on the rear of my bike and am about to change as it is starting to get to legal tread levels. I have seen a rear tyre that is in decent condition but it is 140/80zr17 now I know nothing about tyres but have been told that on my bike the 140 is maximum size I can get, the tyre I have on there seems to have cut into my rear hugger so I am guessing this is bad. My question is will the new tyre the 140 fit on the wheel of the ...

DRZ 400 S - replacement tyres

Hello. I own a DRZ 400 S and live in the UK. Could anyone advise replacement tyres to fit for 70 % road commute 30 % weekend forest trail use. Bridgstone have advised me that the Trail Wing tyre TW 41 80-100-21 is no longer available. I would prefer a similar style of tyre (not too aggressive on the knobblies) and hopefully the same manufacturer for the rear (currently TW 42 120-90-18) Many thanksSteve
