Inexpensive sportbike tires
« on: February 19, 2018, 04:04:42 pm »
I have a 1998 ZX9-R that needs new tires but the bike's for sale so I want to limit my expenses. Any suggestions for a reasonably priced set of tires that are also reasonably sticky?
I need 120/70 ZR17 and 190/50 ZR17
Thanks

I was at Cycle gear the other day. They had sets (I think of Continental's) on sale.
Just looked at their site and didn't see it there.
But, they routinely have set's for sale, and mounting is reduced if you buy there.

Ride safe, Ted
