    If you look at the site, the front Sirac Street tyre has a softer rubber compound than the rear one, so you can't really go wrong.
    But I reiterate-M45 is the best front tyre I have ever experienced on a bike.
    Sirac Street should last you longer, I guess.
    All in all, good job!
    Partially agree , At present I have the Sirac it is nowhere near as good as the M45, the sirac is good on dry roads but as soon as it tastes water, it stops talking to you, the handle gets light and there is not much feedback. The M45 is good for the front but after a little wear and tear, it starts to vibrate, I loved the M35, have you ever tried that?, I would rate it better than the M45.

      Probably Pilot jet is clogged with dirt . I am not sure though. I will leave it to others. Gixxer Baba come n help him

      I ve never experienced M35, probably I will try it in my next front tyre change. (Which will not happen soon ).

      Regarding Sirac not good on wet roads, are you talking about Sirac Street or the Sirac ? I have Sirac 120/80-18 on my ZMR and it sticks like leech even when its pouring cats n dogs

        @BPrags - Are you using the Sirac Street for front too ? Supposedly front has different compound pattern for center & side grooves to provide grip, In any case their is no Denial M45 has best grip when compared to others, but I chose sirac street for a tad more longevity.

          yes I have the Siraac street at the front and pilot sporty at the back, somehow in rains the siraac does not communicate well, I felt the M35 and M45 are better, but I would rate M35 > M45 > Siraac Street. The Pilot Sporty is very good no complaints.

          As mentioned above Siraac on the front and Michelin Pilot Sporty 100/90 at the back, actually I was hunting for M35, but they say M35,M45 production has been stopped due to it failing the ISI standards.

          Note :- The M45 has very weak side walls, I guess that is the reason it has been stopped, sometimes when I had a puncture with M45, the M45 wouldnt hold up at all it would be flat on the ground just like a tube and pushing the bike would be a nightmare.

            Alright thanks

            Pilot sporty is a very good tyre, it has nice round profile which helps good in cornering & its compound makes sure you don't lose ground anytime..

            I had 100/90 at the rear too although it was MRF zapper C , came back to 3.00x18 since I wanted good mileage due to high petrol costs, after all somebody has to take care of the central govt

            I hope for the first time Micheliners like me & Shree, we feel the sirac & Sriac street has good grip since other local manufacturers are far behind from comparing .

            • M45 production is not stopped-it will be back with ISI mark soon.

                  Lol , I dont know about shreeni, but we both did have a look at fiero Vtwin during one of our visits to Zen,

                  @All

                  Pour in your thoughts on using Bosch twin electrode spark plug on fiero which has been used in RTR range by TVS..

                    You will get better pickup from standing start ,and through the entire RPM range, and plug should last for 20 K Kms easily..there is no gap setting involved, and a better FE is also possible.

                        Go for the ABS version if your going for the rtr, rtr always had amazing brakes, now they would be much better...
                        But why did you decide on the RTR 180, isn't it almost the same engine ?
                        there are a few tweaks here and there, but still i would say go for a real upgrade, maybe a CBR 250 ???
                        even that has abs .
                        Giving a lot to a fiero.
                        Expecting a lot from a fiero.

                          Your Fiero can easily be upgraded to 200cc like Gixxer had done and would give you reliability with performance..without RTR vibes.....and all at a fraction of the cost of new bike...The members of this forum have done it and enjoying the benefit,so help at every stage is also available for the upgrade....unless you want to have a New Bike...in which case ABS is not necessary since you had been without it all these years without problem..
                          If you want to go in for a new bike, better to wait till Pulsar 220/250 cc with 4 valves per cylinder is released....The design is in collaboration with KTM and so will be once again a VFM bike..

                            You go for CBR250R STD version, buy some riding gear&buzz off for long rides!
                            Seriously, that is an upgrade. Not RTR180 IMO.
                            The bike is very city friendly too.

                              i will be keeping my FieroF2. i wont be selling it... regarding the P220, its a bajaj product afterall even if they are designing the engine with collaboration with KTM.. i want a long lasting bike (5yrs+) just like my bike which has completed 8 yrs and a little over 1lac kms...

                                dude i really like the CBR250, but i have a budget!! i cannot stretch it beyond 1lac..!!
                                i opted for the RTR180ABS, since i have ridden my friends 180RTRABS and also a nonABS version, they are really fast bikes, and it compares to a 200-220cc bikes... also i have seen that, a slim or hefty guy riding this bike, is always suited on the RTR... and also this "TRUST" factor that has developed inside me for TVS products keeps me away from buying any other bikes other than TVS.. Dont know why?!?!
