    So wat tires do you recommend for GSXR 400?
    depends on wat u want out fo the tires.

    Hope to get a gd pair of wet weather tyres and reasonable mileage.
    Wah, most tires are shitty in the wets, i use Bridgestone Cyrox dyring the monsoon, excellent rain tires. Well, u have to look at the Land Sea Ratio of the tire then. Try and get the tires with the most LS ratio on the centre of the tire rather then the side. We dun get to lean so much in the wet.
    How to tell the LS ratio?
    I riding CBR400RR wat tyre u recommend? I want somethings that can give me decent grip and mileage. Been pondering on BT010, BT56 and BT090. Dunno got wat diff.

    haiz....thx for the advice, din know there's no size for me....
    No worries, man. The last time I asked, the BT-012SS was somewhere near RM1,000 a pair. Farkk off..!!! Friggin' expensive man, but that's KL for you. How much is it in S'pore?

    BT-010 is a damn good tyre for the money you're paying. My personal opinion of expensive SS & sticky race tyres - for the $$$ you're paying, you had better take it to the racetrack, really put the hi-tech to work & get your money's worth. Otherwise... aiyahh... so exp. but 2 months later only middle part worn bald but both sides got 2 inches of thick, virgin rubber.... rugi lah macam ni...

    Hi Bro!

    Is the BT012SS under the race category or performance street cat? Cos i was thinking of changing to BT012SS real soon cos i feel the BT010 isn't able to take trashing at corners...But at the same time, also scared that like wat u said the centre botak liaoz before i know it....haiz....btw i got the quote of BT010 front 120 and rear 190 for S$300 and BT012SS same size F/R for S$360 inclusive worksmanship and balancing....fair deal?

    Hi guys!

    Can anyone enlighten me as to how a proper tyre change should be performed inclusive of balancing and dismounting the old tyre?

    When i observe the mechs change tyres, it always seems like scratching the rim is inevitable...can that be avoided at all?

    And lastly, think i read somewhere that applying grease to the walls of new tyres to be mounted will dislodge the balancing when the tyre "slips" on the rim during high speeds...so should put grease or not?

    Thanks in advance...


    Best Regards

    Philip

    how much does it cost to do the wheel balancing?
    BTW, asking for a friend.... he's going to have a mix of tyres, he wants to use BT039 for front and BT090 for rear, is that advisable for his SP?

    the BT090 tyre he is gonna use for his rear wheel is for the front tyre of bigger cc bikes, so he is gonna end up having 2 "front" tyres on his bike. u think good or not lah.

    those who go to HKL for dunloptt900/bridgestone39ss tyres change, beware! coz the rear tyre 110/70/17 they install is also for front wheel, not recommended for rear wheel.
    although they insist ur bike will corner better, but u r losing out on the mileage n safety!!!!

    BT090 Is not for 150cc if i'm not wrong.
    the more popular tyres for 150cc is
    1) bridgestone battlax 39ss (more grip)
    2) dunlop tt900 (more lasting)
    3) pirelli dunno wat (not recommended)

    if u wan cheap, do it at HKL at $150 for choice 1 & 2 , even cheaper for 3.
    but beware...the size of rear tyre got 2 sizes, 110/70/17 and 120/80/17.

    as i have mention earlier, ask for the 120/80 profile.
    dun compromise.

    sad to say there isnt any 110 90/17 for your bike, except for your OEM ones.

    In this case, go for one size, 120 profile, please refrain from using front tires for your rear......its inappropriate
    hmm, so i should ask for 120 profile for my rear tyre? what about my front tyre?

    I'm aiming for BT090, or BT039....
    what i understand is, BT039 doesn't has 120 90/17(rear), is that true?

    why u die die must use BT090 on a 150cc?
    care to explain?

    BT39SS shld have 120/80/17
    that's why i recommend 90/80/17 front and 120/80/17 rear
    this is the stock profile for SP
    but its ok for any other 150cc.

    dun mean to be sarcastic....but knn ..... if you got skill means you got skills la.... still care whether the tyre is racing type or not.

    abit off-track, well.... the set of BT39SS tyres itself has a good grip, dun need to go mix-and-match urself.
    even the websites of the tyre manufacturers do not recommend mixing of diff models of tyres.

    burn ur tire...
    speed on a straight....jammed ur rear brake....turn ur handle bar to the left....then to the right!
    rem to twist ur body, then ur pose will be beau-ti-ful.

    u will learn this in the defensive riding cse.

    BT090 is a racing tyre, supposely is more gripy.
    dun mean to be sarcastic....but knn ..... if you got skill means you got skills la.... still care whether the tyre is racing type or not.

    abit off-track, well.... the set of BT39SS tyres itself has a good grip, dun need to go mix-and-match urself.
    even the websites of the tyre manufacturers do not recommend mixing of diff models of tyres.
    No lar, i don't intend to race u know, i jus feel that it will be more gripy. that's all.

    i got a question in mind.
    it's known that new tires has a layer of wax on it.
    how to get rid of the wax at the corner of the surface in a more safe method. otherwise need to go around cornering.... but the wax tend to make the surface alittle slippery...
    think i mention in one of my post...use thinner to wipe over then use sand paper to sand off the wax area...

    burn ur tire...
    speed on a straight....jammed ur rear brake....turn ur handle bar to the left....then to the right!
    rem to twist ur body, then ur pose will be beau-ti-ful.

    u will learn this in the defensive riding cse.
    like that wont create flat spot on your tyre meh...

    Whether best of the best depends on the useage and purpose for the tyres.
    Life short, play hard
    You will be sorry when you see me.

    Speed is not how fast you can go,
    But how fast you can handle.

    Ppl always think they\'re good but
    It\'s others tat judge them not themselve.

    OK, here's the low-down.

    CBR400RRR, both using GPR70SP, front 110/70H17 - 225KPa, rear 150/60H17 - 250KPa. Still 'scubbing in' the tyres. Will keep u guys posted on how they perform.
    Ride fast but safe... Skills matters most... the slow ONE... I WAS TOO SLOW at 1min 50.9sec

    Past rides: Quite a few and different types

    Choice of tyres depend on many things.... type of bike, cc of bike, type of rider, type of riding, type of budget etc...

    There will always be a compromise between grip and life of tyre....ie, good grip, shorter tyre life and vice versa....

    As for tyre pressure, you should always check the recommended tyre pressure rather than post on the forum and ask people. I mean, my tyres require 42psi, front and rear.... but I suspect that most of you will not require this kind of pressure.....

    And try not to skint on tyres 'cause they are the only parts of the bike that are constantly in contact with the road.

    Also beware of 'cheaper' tyres. Some bike shops, in order to clear their stock will sell 'out of date' tyres cheaper. Same model, but the rubber compound on the tyres are harder, a natural degeneration of the rubber. Purchasing these kinds of tyres, you will experience less grip and premature cracking on the rubber. So beware.
