Tyres for the bird?

Like the supersonic spy jet from which it got its name, the Super Blackbird delivers an afterburner kick of truly earth-shattering performance that simply takes your breath away.

Tyres for the bird?

Postby garyb » Thu 21 Jul,2011 21:56

What tyres are you guys running on the bird?

Dunlop sportmax roadsmart fitted to mine when I bought it.

No issues with these tyres at all to date - never slipped at all in any weather conditions even with heavy right handed rider! Mileage seems to be good too.

All suggestions welcome. I' am running Pirelli Angels on the CBR 6 and no issues - not sure how they would fare on the 1100 though?

Thanks, Gary

I had Bt053's on when I bought mine but they were too soft and I got no mileage.

The Avon St Ultra 2's were higly recommended so I gave them a go and I got just under 10k.

I was tempted with the Michelin Pilot Road 3's but Michelin say they're not for the 'bird (or Busa, ZZR etc) so I fitted another set of Avons. They're really good ... apart from the first 1 mile when I hate them! :lol:

Cheers for that Scotty. I went with the sportmax in the end as the old one's felt great and also a friend swears by them on his BB.

Hated the first mile too + it was wet when I left the shop :?
