Bridgestone BT020

I need to replace my rear tyre on my VFR800 VTEC. This is the original BT020 - there is an (almost new) BT020 on the front. The Bridgestone website (European) tyre finder application says that this is not the correct tyre, although it lists the BT020 as OE for this bike at the bottom of the BT020 description page. Why is this? Also, what is the difference between a BT020 ""CC" and BT020 "AA" - will either fit my bike.Thanks

R1200GS road tyre choice

In recognition that I never stray off the tarmac what would be most appropriate road tyre selection for my 2007 R1200GS taking into account the loading/speed rating etc of the bike?

good tyres for zx6r g1

I've got a g1 zx6r. Needing new tyres for it but not sure what to get. I won't be doing any track days and try to ride as much as possible in all weathers. Summer the temperature never usually gets over 18C and in winter the weather never gets above 3C. So not sure if I need the most expensive rubber out or if I was to get maxxis tyres whith whom Kawasaki have signed a deal with.cheers in advance

Light bike tyres

Is there a problem using tyres meant for heavier bikes on a light bike? Continental have said it should be fine but just wondering if anyone else has any experience with this?
