Tyres and Bearings

Hi everyone,

I've only been riding 5 months on an '02 SV650s, but it's coming up to new tyre time - what are the best suggestions? I put some pretty good mileage on commuting (put 3.5k on in the last 5 months) so am looking for something with good longevity and wet performance. Someone suggested Michelin Road Pilots what are the thoughts?

Also, I was told to watch out for wheel bearing seals and spacers with high mileage - thing is, I don't actually know what I'm looking for when they're on the way out! Can someone clarify for me?

Cheers
