  1. MT-09 Forum
    Good afternoon, Gentelmen! I need your advice because I am not sure what to do. I put a new tires (front and rear) to my MT-09 2019. Balance was made and it was 75g on each wheel. The problem when I drive higher that 90 mph. Bikes starts to shakes VERY BAD. However I can reduce this effect or...

    The same size rear tire on some FZ-09's look wider than others, even when they read 180/55 on the sidewall. I'm not talking about other sizes here, just the stock size 180/55 for the rear on the stock 5.5 inch wide rim. I have a Michelin Pilot Road 4 on the rear and it must be the narrowest of...

    Any of you hooligans ever tried running Avon Distanzia's on your machine? If you HAD to - would you?? (and i'm talking you might need to spend some miles on dirt fire roads - on a trip)

    First off I apologize if this in the wrong section and if someone has asked this question already (this is my 2nd thread). I searched and couldn't find anything on here. That being said I'm due for some new rubber. I do mostly commuting with the occasional weekend fun run. About 85 commute and...

    So, I'm riding to work this AM and I turn onto a side street and hit the gas. I get up to about 65 and the engine light comes on and the engine cuts out. I coast to a stop, turn off the ignition. I turn it back on, light is off, engine starts up fine. I put it in gear and start going again...

    After 3900 miles on the original tires, it was time to replace the back. I went ahead and replaced the front that matched the rear, (don't know if its cool to mix match tires) so, I didn't. I Just got the AV80 rear and AV79 front installed. I did some research and was happy with the info. I...

    I'll save y'all who dont want to read all this or dont care about why, I'll save you time... 180/55rz17 is better than 190/50zr17. Now then, for my fellow nerds...
