Time for some new rubber


Recommended Posts

I need to get a new set of tyres on the GPZ, they are 130/70/17 and a 110/70/17. Doesn't seem to be a massive amount of choice, either BT45's but I have read about uneven wear being an issue, Avon roadriders, continetal contitwists, or Michelin pilot activ's. They are all roughly the same price, with the michelins being slighty more expensive at just the right side of £200. Just wondered if anyone has ridden any of the above on a commuter style bike and had any input.

I ride every day, in all weathers and wouldn't mind decent mileage, well performing in the wet and hopefully confidence inspiring enough to ride twistys when the weather takes a turn for the better.. In an ideal world lol. I find myself shying away from the bridgestones, I don't know if it's in my head but I feel like you can feel the grip change when you come off the soft outside of the tyre onto the hard middle and have had a couple of snakey moments on the current BT45 that's on when I have ridden hard.

maxxis were horrible on the Fazer.

I swear by Michelin Pilot road 2's or 3's which have now taken over.

Great in the wet and last for ages. Gives me loads of confidence (once warmed up :wink: )
