Tyres

Hi all,

I need some new tyres for my er6f.  Cheapest place I have found is www.mytyres.co.uk  £160 delivered for a pair of BT021's.

Has anyone used them before?  Any other places to recommend?

One last question, should my tyres have gone after 6500 miles?  I dont ride hard so was a bit surprised, especially as my Dad's RS did 11000 on his.

Tyre life

can be quite variable - some tyres suit different bikes better than others, riding style plays a part, motorways and dual carriageways can be hard on tyres (esp in centre where they can square off), keeping them at the right pressures is crucial to tyre life, plus there's always a bit of a trade-off between mileage and grip levels.

6500

sounds a bit low for an er6f. I used to get 8k plus on my sv1000s.

Have used bt21's before and they do seem to square off a bit quick. Went from them to Metzeler z6 and noticed a big difference.

give the 21's...

a miss matt.the front wears unevenly at the sides.go onto 23's if you want to stick with bridgestones,they last very well...or try Dunlop Roadsmarts which are supposed to be better still.

Can vouch

for both Michelin AnakeeII or the Road Pilot 3. Rear anakee has done 8000 on my 650 V-strom, and looks like it'll make 10 without too much problem.  Many of those on long trips to Kent and back from Yorkshire
