Question about Motorcycles

Open Question

I own a GSX1100FR 1994 . Some year ago, I swapped the 16 VB tyres for 16 ZR tyres. It made it handle fantastic & matchs any new bike. But no-one makes 150/80ZR16 rear tyres anymore.

SOURCE: Tyres

Hi .... Tyres are one of those things that every rider you speak to will have a different favorite. Depending on your riding style try Avon Super Venoms, Avon RoadRider or a dual compound rear like a Bridgestone BT45 ............... Let us know how you get on.

SOURCE: diferent size tyres front and back is this normal?

That is normal, most motorcycles run different size front and rear tyres. My BMW has a 21" in the front and a 17" in the rear. The tyre you buy should match your riding style. Don't get a race tyre if all you do is communting, the tyre will wear out too quickly. Expect to pay $150 or so for a rear tyre, perhaps a little less for the front. Mounting & balancing is normally $20-$50 per tyre. Many shops will not mount a tyre you bought somewhere else, keep that in mind if you order tyres from the internet.

SOURCE: what are the tyre pressures on a suzuki sv650

I think the chain guard on my 1999 SV650S had a sticker with correct tire pressures. If memory serves me it was about 30-33 Front and 33-36 Rear.

Hi Barry
There are now some AVON brand harley davidson sports tyres which fit this bike now, with only some small modifications. I just had it done to my 400 SS junior and I must say it make the bike look mean. They are more round with a slightly higher wall profile.
The ones that fit are
Front - AVON 120/80/ZR16
Rear - AVON 150/80/ZR16

regards
Lyndon

Zx9r rear wheel cracked on my 2000 e1 are there any wheels that are a straight swap?


it is better to swap with the same wheel as all have slight differences the earlier wheels are not as wide a tyre i would check out with the kawasaki dealer and see if they know,other wise you may be going down a road of a lot of extra engineering.check to see if there was ever a recall on that year of bikes back wheels for cracking you may get a new one for free,it is always worthwhile when you purchase a second hand bike to see if there was any recalls as your bike might have missed out. hope this helps cheers pete

VW Passat Estate on Alloy wheels with 235/45/ZR17 tyres. want to find winter tyre suitable for 16 inch steel rim for same vehicle. Steel rim is marked 61x2JX16H2


okay, 235 is the tread width 45 is the profile(the distance from the wheel to the road)ZR is the speed rating(over 120mph)17 is the wheel diameter.so to get the same tread width 225 would fit(cheaper than 235)45 needs to be thicker cos of 16" not 17" wheels and 1"=25.4mm 75 would be the choice.because winter tyres are designed for speeds less than 70mph "R" would be suitable.
all together 225/ 75(or 85) R 16.....SNOW TYRE/WINTER TREAD.
PLEASE LEAVE FEED BACK.

What are the tyre pressures on a suzuki sv650 2004 motorcycle? I have metzelder tyres, 120/70 zr 17 front, 160/60 zr 17 back.


Look at the sidewall of both tires. There will be a 'MAX PSI' embossed on the tire. It will probably say Max 45 PSI. At 45psi the bike will ride like a rock. At 20psi it will ride really squirrely. Find a psi at which you feel the bike handles well and rides well. One rider may weigh 125 pounds and the next rider may weigh 300pounds. The best psi for each rider will be different due to weight.

Steering problem GSXR600 SRAD


A couple of things... are the tyres matched? You said you have changed the rear and the front is worn - this will definitely have an effect on handling, as will tyre pressures. The correct sizes for your tyres are: Front 120/70 ZR-17, Rear 180/55 ZR-17
You should ALWAYS use matched tyres - even differences between models in the same brand will be different and you shouldn't mix and match unless you are an expert - and I mean a real expert - pro racer or similar.
Tyre pressures for your bike are : 36psi front and rear. Unless your tyre manufacturer says different, use that figure. Unless all those things are right, you can't begin to diagnose handling issues.
Good luck!

Have just had rear tyres replaced,old ones were zr rated new ones y rated is this ok as handling seems very strange on long motorway bends,was fine before.


mixing different tread depths and/or brands of tires can cause the unsteady feeling. also, worn tires can stick to the ground better that full tread depth tires. similiar to race tires having little tread.
