    Ok which tires would you put on your Bike the Dunlop Q'3 or the Dunlop Road Master II's? I know the Road Masters will last longer but is there that much difference in the feel of the two tires?

    Tire Life

    I bought my 2011 FZ6R back in November with 1400 miles and I am pretty sure they are the stock tires, the tires are dated with 2011. Is there any specific life of a tire on when they should be changed? I was in a Military Sport Bike Rider course and one of the instructors said that usually by...

    Leaning question

    Hello everyone. First post to this site! I just got my FZ6R about 3 weeks ago and have been riding every day. I've been going through the twisties, and since I've been leaning pretty hard on it found that the back tire seems to loose traction in my lean. I'm wondering if that's a...

    Ok I am looking at getting some new tires. The ones on my bike have kind of a flat spot on both front and back tire. They were made this way. I am looking on the internet and non of the tires look like mine. Is it just the way they look online or am I looking for a different type of tire? Thanks

    Strange wear pattern?

    My last bike was a cruiser and the tires lasted forever, with relatively flat wear patterns. So maybe I'm freaking out about nothing... At 6200 miles, I am getting close to the wear marker on my back tire (Dunlop Roadsmart). It's the front tire that concerns me. Yesterday when I got off the...

    inflation guidance

    Reading the manual, it says if you are heavier than 198lb to increase the tire pressure, but goes back to the lower pressure if you plan "high speed riding." Questions: **Do you increase the pressure in some sort of continuum as you increase weight? With my daily gear, I'm at about 195lb. My...

    Rear Tire 160/60 vs 170/60

    At the start of the season I picked up a nail in my rear tire at about 500 miles. I plugged the tire and it has been fine, but I guess it developed another slow leak and the pressure dropped and it has a nice flat spot. I now have 2700 miles and I want to take the bike to Vegas in October. I...

    Road Pilot 3s

    My Roadsmarts finally needed replacing after 7,800 miles and decided to give the new Michellins a go (no issues with the Smarts just that the Pilots are the flavour of the month over here in the UK). Only done under 100 miles so far so haven't really ridden in anger but my initial thoughts...
