I don't think a 210 on the front would handle too well.[/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]
Well, you know how I said I have the Metzler and it was working out just fine, well, all of a sudden I look at it and I've got bands just about to poke out! I only have 1000 highly abusive and smokey miles on it! I am really dissapointred, cause I really like the look of a 210mm tire. I know it's only a half inch, but it is noticable.
So I just ordered a Dunlop D208zr. It's only a 200, but at least I got almost 4000 out of my stock Dunlops. I got it athttp://www.motorcyclemart.com/tires/dunlop/d208zr.htm for $143 + 15 for shipping. I hope it arrives before my cords do.
Both tires are stock, Bis. Look in the back of your owners manual, it even list both of them as stock tires. I've seen both on the Warriors in my area. In fact, I've seen both on the Warriors at my dealer.
Arthur, that was only 1 smiley and 1 peace sign on that tire.....and countless rolling smokers from stop lights [/emoticons/emotion-2.gif] This will be my third tire in just under 5000 miles.
Tires Tires Tires. Either to hard or they are to soft and don't last. I think there is an article about the metzlers in the Rating section. A Metzler rep indicated the 880 was not intended for the warrior. I am happy with my Dunlops but people are getting great milage out of the Bridgestones.
Well, sory, I guess I was wrong about Avon. I have a set of Metzelers wating to go on /emoticons/emotion-1.gif, they look and feel great.
It dosent matter how the feel off the bike.[/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]
