Just acquired a 97 Blade and have been trawling the net for the possible tyre options given the 16 inch front tyre. The current options are:Pirelli DiabloAvon VP2 SportBridgestone BTo16 ProContisport AttackDunlop Qualifier IIMichellin Pilot SportRide on Pilot Road 2s on a Fazer 600 which are great. Won't be doing track days. It will be for Spring/Summer riding. Don't want something that's going to wear out in 2k but want reasonable grip given the extra power of the Blade.Any suggestions from fellow Blade riders would be appreciated.

What causes this, and is the tyre safe?
Hi, strange thing happened over last few days...was gonna go out on my bike over the weekend, took it off the paddock stand and saw the rear tyre was flat,(only rode it 2 days beforehand)so put it back on the stand and pumped it up to 32psi.Checked it that evening and psi was 32psi still,checked it over next two days and still 32psi, went for a little ride around town and when I got back 35 psi.....(tyres have green stuff in for over a year now)....any ideas.?
I have a 1992 GSX750F (standard OEM wheels fitted)and need to replace the tyres.The OEM recommended tyre sizes are 110/80 R17 front, 150/70 R17. However there seems to b a very limited choice of 110/80 R17 front tyres available.The closest alternative sizes available are 110/70 or 120/70, both of which reduce the tyre circumference (the 120/70 by the least amount). Would it be possible to fit the wider 120/70 to the existing rim? Which of these sizes would be the best alternative? Is a change in tyre size something I would need to inform my insurance company of?Grateful for any advice.Howard
As I'm due for a tyre change on my ER5, a biker enthusiast recommended Maxxis. Apparently they are softer than most, thus gripping the road surface better?At the moment, I have Dunlop Arrowmax GT5011. At times, I am experiencing wheel slide, so can anyone also recommend Maxxis?

It's time to again replenish the sticky stuff and again it's a hard decision as to the best performing tyre for my climate and riding conditionsI'm not exactly a tyre expert and the local bike shop keeps pushing the tyre on their max margin. Typically my choice is Michelin pilot power as they are predictable at traction and edge, but the life isn't that long and when new are a bit squirmy. The bike shop put on Dunlop qualifiers on my 675 but a few two wheel drift knee saves later and those are in the sin bin...

I have a Buell XB12XT and I'm looking for a recommendation on tyres. I raced for a few years on the short circuits and roads over here in Ireland, I dont care if I have to put new tyres on every 1000 miles as I'm well used to buying a couple of sets a month! Currently have Pirelli strada (came fitted) but feel I'm at there limit, I like fast road riding, wont be doing any track days but will be on the odd green lane, gravel track when I take the wee lad away camping. Was considering the new ...
