I need some new rubber for Sys. Anyone have recommendations? How many miles (or km) did you get with your set and did you like them?
What mileage did you get out of the OEM tires and was it the same riding style that got you 9000 out of the Z6?I'm running z6 right now and am happy with them. First set the rear gave me about 9000 miles, the front about 12,000 but was changed because it started to cup and I can't stand the feel of a cupped tire...
I think I got something like 8500 out of the OEM tires, same riding style, which is for this bike mostly commuting 70 miles per day from April to December, and a few long distance (plus 1000 miles) tours with some back road riding, but I do not ride this bike overly hard.What mileage did you get out of the OEM tires and was it the same riding style that got you 9000 out of the Z6?
I ask because I went through the OEM Dunlop rear by 3400 (it was at the wear bars at 2600) and I just got 6500 out of a PR2 rear. — Not too bad... but I’d kinda like to get a bit more...
BTW, which tire changer did you get?
Boy I’d love to know how you guys get that kind of mileage out of a tire! I really don’t push it that hard and I’m getting 1/2 to 1/3 of what some of you are reporting!?! I wonder if it could be a difference in the road surfaces...I put on a set of Pilot Road 2CT at 8,000 miles when the OEM tires wore out. I now have over 19,000 on them and I figure to get a couple of thousand more before I need to replace them, maybe more. ...
Same here... I waivered over the cost at first but my only regret is that I didn’t get it sooner. It sure takes the effort out of the job, not to mention the fear of gouging a rim — or worse, doing unseen damage to a tire while putting it on...... I got a Cycle Hill changer (made by NoMar), enhanced with a few bits from NoMar themselves and a balancing stand... I have changed about 4 or 5 tires this year so far and love it.
