Question about 2003 Aprilia Scarabeo 200
Still loving the scooter thing... If I am not thinking about work or family
I am thinking about my bike. Regarding replacement tires my 08 beo 200 has 100/80 (front) and 120/80 (rear). It is still early on in the tire's life cycle (only have 1300 miles) on it. They are the stock Cheng Shin tires. Dont really have anything to compare them against and have ridden in mostly dry conditions and just yesterday during and after a light misting but have no complaints in performance at all. Just looking down the road for when I do have to to replace the tires. I was considering getting tires with a bit more contact patch possibly 110/70 (front) and 130/70 (rear). This would give me more width and with a lower profile would possibly put me at the same diameter as the 80's. The ride will probably be more firm though. I have played around with cars and tires in the past, but two wheel dynamics are different so I am looking for the groups advice or input on the matter,I have been considering options as well for sometime next year. The host site lists a 110/80/16 in the Michelin Gold. Would the rim size on the Beo 200 support a larger size? They also list a Pirelli in 130/80/16 as a replacement for the Beo 200. Can one assume that the rear rim will indeed support a larger tire? I had to lay my scoot on its side once this summer and noticed how fast the front tire broke loose on pavement at slow speed. I was also wondering if a larger front tire would put a bit more rubber on the road, to any advantage. ,,,
