I've put BATTLAX BT-016 Hypersport tyres on and find them great in the wet or dry.Its that time of year again.
Tyres and service needed
The dunnies have done 4k and need to be replaced. I have been recommended Avon storms any one know different
Service is due in 2000 miles 8 weeks approx what should I pay
No I took em off cos they through the bike out of balance and it was like trying hold up a drunken 30 stone man whilst standing on an ice rink. plus they didn't grip. Even reviews on them where bad. but thats in the past.I have Avon Storms on my Bandit and I rate them as a touring tyre - very good in the wet. I would not put them on the Nelli though - the profile is not sporty enough. For me its another vote for the 2ct - Fantastic grip wet or dry and they have so far done a couple of thousand miles with plenty left to go. Not sure if this is a revision on the ones you had Glenn - they must be cos I think you would need to be CANING it to wear them out in 1000k!! Do you do rolling burnouts everywhere lol? These ones are dual compound so if you are just touring they will last ages, if you are scratching and always banked over I guess they would wear as quick as any other similar sporty tyre.
Just goes to show its all a matter of personal taste ;-)
Yeah must have been a different version I cant fault them for grip.No I took em off cos they through the bike out of balance and it was like trying hold up a drunken 30 stone man whilst standing on an ice rink. plus they didn't grip. Even reviews on them where bad. but thats in the past.
I am a slow rider so thinks i will plumb for the avons. I hate the wet especially on roundabouts. Needs my confidence rebuilding :bawl:
