'82 Yamaha Maxim: Tire Question - April 25, 2011, 10:38 AM

Morning Kids-

So looks like no new toy for me this year. This means the only way I am riding this year is on my goat. I am wanting to slap some new rubber on it and was wondering if anyone had ever thought putting a ST tire on. I love the Pilot Road 2s I had on my SV. Thoughts?

Your bike uses a bias-belted tire, if you want a Michelin, you'll need the Sport-Activ, NOT the Pilot Road.

I don't think a Pilot Road would work on that bike//////but what do I know?


What do you value more? Life or Image?

"I don't ride, I usually just sit around wearing a tshirt and my icon back protector and talk shit about anyone who does not have a liter bike. That's how you can pick me out of a crowd. I also wear a red tophat."

I am thinking you are right, I was using it as an example. Just wanted some feedback. I am searching on a Maxim forum as well but local rider input is always good.
