    Default Tyres change for the Ninja 300

    I am surprised to see no thread for the stock tyres swap for the Ninja 300.

    The infamous IRC have a pretty bad report of grip both in the dry and wet conditions.

    Now not only I am confused on what to swap to, I am not even sure from where to get those.

    Are online's a safe bet? Or are there any recommended shops who can change the tyres?

    Thumbs up Re: Tyres change for the Ninja 300

    Topic Approved.

    Any 17 inch tyre would fit you rims. The rest of the specs may vary, but it would be better if you stick to the stock size from any good brand like Pirelli, Michelin, etc. You could choose MRF too.



    Accd. to this link:-> https://www.bcsportbikes.com/forum/s...-the-ninja-300

    "" Stock tires are 110/70/17 and 140/70/17. There are only 2 tires available in these sizes that are any good (the Diablo Rosso II & Michelin Pilot Street) ""


    So, you probably try these? Of course that guy is not from India... so, see what you can get here...

    Yeah. Perellis are the best bet for grip, but life would be pretty low. I wanted to bump up the rear tyre size to 150 to accommodate more option

    You can try MRF Masseter, comes in stock sizes. Using it on my R3 and quite happy with it.

    First set lasted me 19k kms and now on second set. Wet grip is good for me.

    I have experimented with a few different tyres over the course of my 55000 km ownership experience with the N300 and have settled with the MRF FC1 and Revz C1 as a reliable and good tyre especially on dry tarmac conditions. They are fairly reasonable at around Rs. 8000/- for a pair and last around 18000 km. There is a fair amount of good information on tyres for the N300 in the xBhp ownership thread.

    Here is a picture of the rear tyre taken when it was relatively new. Unfortunately I don't have a snap off the front tyre, but will take one the next time I am out for a spin.Name:  IMG20171229083719.jpg
