750 sei tyres
While I have lots of stuff to do, I started checking for tyres.
The ones people here seem to like are not available in the States.
would this for front: https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/t...ire-p?s=141978
100/80 x 18
and this: https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/t...ire-p?s=142427
120/90 x 18
work pretty well?
Period aspect ratio should be 90% F+R (I had a Suzuki GS850GN back then), so your 80 front choice concerns me. It'll sit lower, ground more easily and the steering will be quicker !
They do make a 110/90 x 18
Do those clear ok?
Think OEM was 3.5" so closer to 90 but 100 would be fine. Guessing 110 would be too big for your newly-chromed guard.
If I recall, period rubber was Metzler, Pirelli and Avon .. why not ship from outside the USA (if you can't source) and tolerate the extra for the sake of the build?
90/90 x 18 is readily available- and since it has a 3.50 now, that seems the better choice I guess.
Cost of shipping from the UK is almost as much as the tyres cost!
No huge hurry, but I am just starting to look now in case I needed to order from somplace.
Had Metzlers on the bike were original. however put on Pirelli Tyres 120/90 seems to work fine
I found an outfit in the UK that had decent shipping costs, and good purchase cost. So for not too much more, I got the more ‘correct’ size (I hope).
thanks for the help.
