new tires that work
« on: April 13, 2017, 01:41:23 am »
Well I went back to http://www.dunlopmotorcycletires.com/tire-line/d404/ due to my last rear tire lasting for 7K and worked better than the 777.

So I figured let's see if they have a front and behold http://www.dunlopmotorcycletires.com/tire-line/roadsmart-iii/

Much more neutral feeling than the Michelin RP3 and the combination is roughly the same amount as the 777 and PR3 combo.

Let's see how it holds up.

Many opinions on running mixed tires (bias and radial) together. Some say it works well and others claim they handle funny.
Different strokes for different folks I guess.

I've had two different bias/radial mixes (bias on rear both times) the bike handled fine.

You cant go wrong with the Roadsmart. It is an excellent tire.
If you don't have time to do it right, when do you have time to do it over.                                                                17" wheels, Nissin 4 piston calipers.1kg Sonic Springs.Cartridge Fork Emulators. KB Brace. Galfer brake lines  Free power mod.

If you liked the D404 on the rear, why not a D404 on the front?
