    Impressive
    've run several different tyre makes on my Buell including the Corsas fitted when the bike was new and though all were great when new, I did noticed a loss of handling and reasurance once they'd got down to half wear. I'm now close to the end with the Battlaxes and they simply haven't missed a beat. Nice to be still using the entire outer edge of a tyre this late in it's life and the few times I found myself comming in too hot on a wet bend , found they did exactly what Bridgestone said they would. My next choice of tyre is already made. I'm using them front and rear and seriously can't recomend them enough.

    Great Tire CBR1000rr
    Have about 4k on the set. rear is just about gone. front is a little past halfway, alot of highway miles, some hard excellerating but nothing like the track. Great stability in corners, rode in cold rain and hot weather. Would buy again.

    Great wear
    I had this on my KTM Super Duke and the duel compound held up great for daily commuting along with great traction for riding in the mountains on the weekend.

    Great tire.
    My bike came stock with BT016 Pro's and although I did consider switching them out for something different, I put a new set on. This tire does just about everything right and wears very well. With over 6.500 miles on the original rear tire, and subjected to all the power my bike puts down, these Battleaxes are have proved great for both the street and occasional track day.

    The service (lightening fast free shipping) and price I received from Riders Domain has made me a lifetime customer.

    Great Tire, have bought nothing but these...
    This is a great tire, both front and rears. Semi Soft, yet I get a decent amount of miles out of my CBR 1000RR and especially my SV650S with them. I have bought nothing except these, and will continue to do so until Bridgestone gets a better tire for me..

    Great deal! Unbeatable price!
    Nothing better then the original tire to replace it!. I know it lasted 4000 miles but has a good reason to be the original part chose by BMW.

    I have 2001 gsxr 1000 that's has now a 190/50zr-17 (73w) rear tire, but stock rear tire is supposedly a 180/55-zr17 . What would be a better size to purchase?
    h c on Aug 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: A 2001 GSXR-1000 K1 Comes equipped with a 6.0" wide rim,so a smaller size tire suited for a 5.5" rim can be fitted,but will not have a correct profile curvature.a better solution is to install a 190/55-17 for a excellent profile.
    double check that someone installed a smaller wheel at some point.that larger tire will need a 1 tooth smaller front sprocket to gain all the positives from it though.if you don't want to go through the extra hoops,then if your rim is a 6.0" stock rim then a 190/50-17 will work just fine also.Rocket-Rex M/C Man.
    Is the 180/55 zr17 tire brand new for the 06 zx6r 636?

    BEST ANSWER: The 180/55ZR-17 is the stock rear tire size for your Ninja ZX-6R.
