Tyres

With around 2200 miles on the clock I don't think my tyres will last to 3000.
I have got a pair of Avon 3D Ultra Sport ready to go on. They only cost £165 for the pair delivered from FWR Ltd. I have used these before (GSR750) and found them very good.
Avon is American owned but the tyres are made in the UK, I support the UK whenever possible!

Is that 3000 on the rear?
Are you doing trackdays or something?
I'm going to wait to see how much winter riding I do before I decide on tyres.

Well mostly, the front wheel has spent sometime in the air but not that much.
Never been on a track in my life and no burn outs but I do tend to cane the back a bit.

Ridden like it's supposed to be ridden.
I do like the look of the back tyre after a spirited ride. Goes all bobbly on the shoulder.

So, 2880 miles and rear is down to the wear bars and beyond, the front was in very good condition.
The Avons mentioned in the first post went on today.
If I could have found a D214 rear I would have kept the front. Even the Dunlop UK site does not list a 190/50 only a 180/50.
Ebay search only comes up with used tyres.

I'm sticking with 50 bcs homologation is only 50 for Suzuki and police is checking also right dimension of tires on a bike which in 55 case would mean immediately taking away my license plate. Long gone the times of freedom uffff
