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

Ducati Panigale Tyre Size

My Panigale is due a new set of boots. Whilst the 200 section supercorsa is great in the dry, it is a bit scary at high speed in the wet. My only choice of other tyres are 190 section. Is this a safe/wise move ? Anyone had any experience of changing section size ?

cbr1000f whhels

i have a 86 cbr1000fh and have been offered a pair of wheels from a 91 cbr1000f. i realise it will been some serious tinkering, utilizing the later models rear shock, front sprocket cover with speedo drive plus other minor question is, is there any real advantage to fitting the later wheels or is it going to be more of a cosmetic exercise rather than a performance booster. will they really help the bikes handling?cheers

FZ1S Tyre choice

My current rear tyre (Battlax R17) is coming up for renewal and I can't say that I'm that impressed with the grip, and especially not the wear.I commute daily in all weathers except snow, mostly on A roads about 200 miles per week, and am looking for tyre to suit, that's not hideously expensive.The bike is a 2008 model. All thoughts, advice very much appreciated.

The effect of tread depth

I was looking at the new Shell fuel when I came across their advanced driving tips - one was on tyre tread depth and is quite startling:"When tyre tread depth falls below 3mm your braking performance deteriorates, according to research by MIRA Ltd.Tyres with a 3mm tread have a 25% better performance than those at the legal minimum of 1.6mm. In terms of stopping distance this represents an extra 8 metres, or 25 feet, in wet conditions. In one test, when a tyre with a tread depth of 8mm was compared to one with only 1.6mm, the stopping distance increased ...

hi - right now I am thinking about trying different tyres - I used to really like the old bridgestones but last 5 yrs the sportier tyres all seem to me to have gone for a pointier profile (016 or 023 or 090s) which makes them feel a bit "on edge" on the road at least. dunlop 207-208s were nice on track but lethal cold. sportsmarts were ok but not as grippy as they are made out to be. I'd like a flatter profile less nervous but grippy tyre - any ideas anyone? many thanks. ian
