Recommended Posts

Hi every one . Here's a question to the seasoned riders . Last year I had a new BT21 battlax tyer put on my bike (CB750FN2).. so now iv checked it and its almost touching the small MAX death tread . And it's starting to go flat on the crest of the tyer . Its done 6500 miles mostly on motorway an two up .so I say 4K motorway two up .. so is that good for a back tyer on a 750 ... the tyer are sports /tourers . If anyone can let me know if there is a better tyer I'll happy to try. Thanks

Tyre. Tyre tyre tyre tyre

Tire.


As with most things, how long it lasts depends on many factors. However generally the more weight on the tyre the quicker it will wear. 6.5k seems pretty good to me for one that's done most two up. 7-9k is about average for most bike tyres I think.

Errr....wash your mouth out, young lady! "Tire" is a foul Americanism which should be treated with the same disdain as things like "muffler", "fender", "gas tank" and "gear shifter" etc. etc. There is a place for all that.......and that place is not here!


(PS. Only joking, Arwen!)

BT21 wear out quickly, one on the fornt of my GSX600 only lasted 6,000. The original Micheln had done 19,000.

Bridgestone seem to be able to make either grippy tyres or long lasting tyres


I put a new Michelin Pilot 2 on the rear at 29,000 currently at 37,000 and looks like it will las another 4-5,000 (total 12-13,000)

If you want longer lasting tyre that still offers good grip (especially in the wet) go for Michelin.

Hi, always use Avon storm 3D's or even old Storm 2, one of the best touring tyres, managed 11500, out of last front, and 9500 on rear, all of which done 2 up with luggage, and brilliant grip wet or dry.😀

No it isn't.. its a rubber covering, typically inflated or surrounding an inflated inner tube, placed round a wheel to form a soft contact with the road.


This has been misspelled by a fella who is known by now to not be the best at written english... a fact that some of us recognise and are perfectly fine with. But.. that some of you use as an excuse to get just a little bit pedantic and superior. An excuse that you seem to almost relish.

I couldn't give a damn.. text is purely used to transmit ideas.. and if the fella has problems with that then I for one am prepared to ignore his mistakes. The ideas he is trying to get across are not difficult to understand unless you make it difficult. or insist on pointing it out. as if there is some desperate importance that everything be 'just so'.


its being a twat for the sake of it. you should try working with people who have difficulties. you might end up just a tad more charitable.
