I need new tires on my GSXR1000. It came with Bridgestone BT010 in the rear and BT011 in the front. I was just going to put the same tires back on it, but he said to run the Metzler Sportec M-1 on it. Anyone have the M-1's on their bike? Do you like the way they handle?

I have the M-1's on my SV and love the way they feel. They were a tremendous improvement over the stock MEZ4's. From what I understand, they provide a little bit better grip than the BT01's but I don't have a direct comparison. How many miles did you get on yours BT01's? The M-1's should be good for 4-5k miles on the rear tire and you'd be going through two rears to a front.

About 5800 miles. I was just reading up on the M-1's, they sound like a good tire.

Check the Beta Photo Gallery. It's old, but I posted a review from Sept 01.

No, no! Get 'em from RonAyers.com. $193 to my door about four months ago. The prices have gone up a little bit since then and your rear tire will be a coupla bucks more than mine, but it's still the cheapest place I've seen. Plus their service is awesome!
