Which tyres are best.. for 1250f
« on: October 29, 2016, 10:40:55 AM »
Any ideas what tyres are would suite the 1250fa.. for longevity..it has Battlax 023s on.. they were on the bike already.. which are squaring off..
I was running pirrelli angels.on my 650f.  I wondered if theres a better/longer lasting tyre for the 1250

My 021 Bridgestones have squared off pretty quickly. Heavy bike, lots of torque. Don't think there's a lot between the multi compound tyres. If you don't do lots of twisties and commute/ride fairly flat, the middle will wear much quicker whatever. Look for a bargain. Rear fitted for £100 is my target.

I had Michelin PR3 and PR4 on my 1250 . IMO both great tyres, particularly good in the wet and I got 9,000 miles from the rear with more left in the front. They were much better that the stock Bridgestones.

I rarely  get more than 4500 miles on rear tyres. Depends how you ride - lots of engine braking and brisk acceleration takes its toll. Depends on how high you rate fun. Ride it like you stole it, £100 now and then for new rubber suits me. I don't think there is as much between different tyres as some think. In the wet it's more down to tread pattern. In the dry, riding style is the biggest factor. Pay an extra £50 for a 'good' tyre but a cheaper one that lasts not quite so long may be just as good value. Hard lasts longer - soft handles better. Deals on tyres vary quite a bit. Buying a pair can save a lot but front and back timescale can vary. Tyre choice is down to personal preference but you do hear some fiction! All modern tyres are pretty good. I rode a fast sports bike a while back and changed from a Supercorsa to a less sticky cheapo. Lost loads of lean to save money. But with sport touring tyres the differences are not so great IMO.

I  have stock battle 21st as original . Have done 5400 sir rite riding miles and am happy with them. My mate has changed to battleaxe 23. After 7 k miles on 21st he had squared his tyres. To be honest I would not be able to tell the difference. At 66 I ride a bike to what is fitted.

Went for BT021 again - rear £114 fitted. I quite like matching pairs. Next time I should need a pair together so might change to another brand.
