I have them on my CRF250M and I like them. More confidence inspiring than the IRCs and better handling mainly because I went with a 140 rear.I would like to hear from owners of the Michelin Pilot Street Radials regarding handling characteristics and wet traction.
Wow, that is very surprising! I watched the guy at my shop open the catalog to place the order. The bias ply and the radials were on different pages in the book, so it would be hard to accidentally mix the order....I would like to verify whether the front tires of the radials also have a "radial" in their label...
Germany takes driving and riding a LOT more seriously than the US. They do make it hard to modify vehicles but on the other hand they allow unlimited speed on certain sections of the Autobahn.Also it seems your country has too many strict rules on bikes. Glad I live in the US. lol
Thanks for the picture. It's appreciated.Wow, that is very surprising! I watched the guy at my shop open the catalog to place the order.
Yes, they told me that too.The shop guy reminded me to ride easy for 100 miles or so until the mold release compound is scrubbed off. I knew that but I appreciated the reminder anyway...it shows concern for the customers.
Sure thing.Thanks for the picture. It's appreciated.
He ordered it in the computer but he identified and validated the correct product and part number with the paper catalog. I think he has learned not to trust someone else to do proper data entry into a computer system.You'll be hard pressed to find anyone here who still uses a paper catalog. He ordered the stuff in a computer system.
Would probably have been a wiser choice here as well.He ordered it in the computer but he identified and validated the correct product and part number with the paper catalog. I think he has learned not to trust someone else to do proper data entry into a computer system.
The funny thing is I could swear that my bike got more speed on the new tires (even though the front was the bias ply version). Maybe it's just circumstances but I commuted the same Autobahn for some time in the past that I used for my ride on Saturday and achieved speeds I had not seen before in all of my commuting (an indicated 145km/h is still pretty slow compared to some other speeds I've seen here but I don't tuck and weigh 85kg so I think it's just my riding style). I attributed that to possible tail winds... We'll see in the future.Rolling resistance. I got the feeling that the rolling resistance is lower, because the bike took much longer to lose speed when letting off the throttle. I am really hoping to see a noticeable improvement in fuel economy from my current 69 mpg.
In case that, don't worry about a bias ply (S) front and a radial (H) rear.Hope I don't have to wait for another three weeks to get my front tire.
The problem is that it's illegal in Germany. No mixed tires! In case of an accident with injuries or fatalities the vehicles get confiscated for a technical inspection. If they find out then that the bike was illegally on the street the insurance won't pay a dime and it's also a felony on it's own. It's complete BS as both tires are legal for the bike, just not when mixed. Welcome to Germany, home of plenty of pointless laws.In case that, don't worry about a bias ply (S) front and a radial (H) rear.
As long it is this way, means the front is the 'weaker' spec, it's road legal.
Is your tire shop taking it back? What's written on the bill, how much they charged you for the street? I guess, no one even checked on the S and H speedrating, there!
They are long runners, with extrem good wet handling. So i assume, that the grip on the edge will be a bit tricky, on a track.Need new rubber asap. Has anyone tracked these tires? I need something for primarily commuting/canyon runs, but I'm trying to get to a coaching day at the track every few months. Wondering if these tires will fit the profile.
