Both 777's I had were squared off around 6k also . Nice tires but sure didn't last too long .

Just wondering...  Is there a better...ie, longer lasting tire you've tried?

That’s awesome mileage!  Mine was mostly two-up...but, no commute miles...I changed them with a little bit of tread left...I was happy...

I'm really liking the Avon 3DXM, have about 4k on them and showing little wear , back is still nice and round .

Curious, what sizes did you mount exactly?

plus almost every shop has GW sizes in stock all the time...if you need a new tire on the road somewhere that's the size ur gonna find everywhere...the stock C10 size is hit & miss...well the front is.  the rear is same as I run on my 2 of my Harleys.

160/80-16 on the rear??? You mount a white wall?

Can find 150/80-16 777 in black wall for the rear, but no 160/80.

??????????

It's not a 777...it's an SR734...and, it's a blackwall...there's a matching front also in the SR733...they look like Dunlop Touring Elite copies...

Yeah...it happened kind of quickly...reply # 21, 22, 23... 

Really?  Whitewall...?  OK...I guess it does have a 16" rear wheel...but...really?

Went ahead and ordered a 733 front in the 130/70 size; came in yesterday. Dang!, that’s a wide puppy. You guyz sez it fits, so we’ll see next week.

I want to get a Storm 2 off the front before I head up into PA for a rally next month. Put an Elite something on the back after my last Azaro failed on me, so this 733 will now put a bias on the front.

FWIW – I have a brand new Storm 2 sitting in the wings, free for the asking; just pay shipping and it’s yours.

I am retracting the above offer. The tire is date-stamped older than I thought it was. Even tho' the one on my bike has a similar date stamp and I have had no issues with it yet, I'd rather not pass it on to someone given the failure rate of Avon tires.
