tires - July 18, 2009, 10:18 AM

I need new tires on my 04 r1, any suggestions? The owner before me went down to a 180 rear. Also should i put a 190 back on the rear?

190/55-17 REAR... You will love how it corners... check to see if the swingarm has enough clearance up front near the shock tho...

BT-003's are DOT slicks. I have a set on my R6. I would only recommend them if you are riding more track days than street. They are slippery on wet pavement.
