Default Tire needed for my motorbike.

Where do scic folk go to get tires on your motorcycle? I have a chunk of metal hanging out of the rear tire on my FZ1 and I'm looking for a good place and a fair price.

I think I remember at least one chick here that rides a CBR or something.

What say ye SCIC?

you should get it online and then take it to cyclemall for mount/balance. no one can beat online price and i haven't found anyone to beat cyclemall's mount/balance at $15...well i have found some but they are out of garages and in BFE.

Orange isn't too far, I'll check it out. Yeah, I'll just patch and go.

I love this bike. This is my first FI bike...it's great. This is it.




but I'd like to do the conversion to the euro style:



Don't feel like dropping the $800 though.

Michelin Pilot Power 2CT (the ones im getting next) Dual compound, the center is harder compound and wont wear out as fast as the stock dunlops we have, edge gets softer so its also amazing for track...

also Pirelli Diablo corsa III is a pretty popular tire

They are triple compound...center is hard, mid gets a bit softer, and so on for cornering ect ect

Those 2 are like the most popular, for all around use

if you aren't tracking or running aggressive canyons, you'll be more than fine to run just the plain diablos they are decent enough for middle group B riding. the corsas are not going to last very long on the streets.
