I am looking to buy some new tires both front and back. I notice lookin that for the warrior they are giving me choice of both 120/70 zr 18 and 130/70 zr 18 is ther any benefit between the two which would be the better size to go with? The brand is the Bridgestone Exedra. I chose them because I like the tread patterns! any input or suggestions?

I would stay with the stock size. I see no benefit of having anyhing different on the front. I tried the Exedra when they first came out, got good wear out of the front but the back was gone before 4k. Worst rear tire I have ever own as for as wear is concerned.

I would very much agree!

I have run both sizes and couldn't tell the difference.


Once you get away from the Bridgestones and go to Avon you will be much happier.


www.motoxoutlet.com has them at a resonable price and they ship fast.

It depends on what kind of riding you do. The 120 will work better in the curves. It will transition quicker due to the profile.


The 130 will feel better on the highway. Straight up riding.


Hope this helps.

Excellent choice of tire IMO. I would stick with the stock size frt tire: Bridgestone G851F - 120/70ZR18 & Bridgestone G850R - 200/50ZR17 on the rear.

Due respects I know it took a lot to change my mind too, and I've been happily astounded at the characteristics of the new generation of tires like the Avon Storm ST AV55 and AV56. Check them out. The compound is an amazing technology. I believe Dunlop has its version in stores now too, but the Avon is incredible and has a better reputation to date.
