    Icon11 Re: Tyres - RX135

    Hi All,

    I'm am looking to make changes to the RX135 5-speed footwear.

    I know that MRF zapper FS/FV are recommended for front (2.75/18) but I'm interesting in the Moto-D series.

    Would there be any demerits in running
    • 2.75 x 18 - Front - MotoD
    • 3.25 x 16 - Back - MotoD (Alternatively 3.00 x 16 if 3.25 is unavailable)
    • Understood that 16" reduces handling but I'm used to it since years


    Currently this is what I have going on :


    • RX135 4-Speed

      • Recommended : 2.50 x 18 Front & 2.75 x 18 Rear
      • Current setup : 2.75 x 18 Front (Michelin M45) & 3.25 x 18 Rear (Yezdi)

    • RX135 5-Speed :
      • Recommended : 2.75 x 18 Front & 3.00 x 18 Rear
      • Current setup : 2.75 x 18 Front (Stock) & 3.25 x 18 Rear (Yezdi)



    Thanks in advance
    A
    p.s. Open to Michellin Sirac as well that M45 is ancient and still doing great.

    Thumbs up Do scooter tyres wear out faster than motorcycle tyres?

    Friends,

    I am a newbie, an investor cum security analyst also covering 2 wheeler tyres.

    I was looking to get a basic query answered by experts here. As you know over the past few years scooter sales have risen much faster than motorcyles and so have scooter tyres. Now it stands to reason that assume that scooter tyres wear out faster than motorcycle tyres, because there are probably say 2 rotations of a Honda Activa tyre to cover the same distance as say a Bajaj Pulsar tyre, thus wearing out the tyre faster.

    Industry folks however say that they see motorcycle tyres replacement demand to be higher than scooter because the motorcycle tyres are subject much bigger abuse. They are yet to see scooter replacement kick in in a big way

    Which one of the two is correct in your opinion?

    Thank you for your time.

    whichever scooter may get launch , total bike will be always higher than scooters . Anyway tyre life depends upon the rubber used , it can be soft compound (low life) medium or hard (high life but less grip)

    so scooter have a low tyre life due to more rotations per kilometers & soft compound

    This because of the usage patterns.
    A lot of scooters are just errand machines for the ladies and students with very less mileage per month-motorcycles are more likely to be used as workhorses accumulating mileage very fast-a friend has a courier service and owns 15 Bajaj CT100's-AVERAGE running of each bike is close to 5000kms a month-hence tyres are replaced every 5-6 months or even earlier sometimes.

    Default Re: Tyres

    Planning to change rear tyre of karizma. I've 110 section tyre in mind. Anything above that will be overkill. I'm looking for dual purpose tyres and the only one I could find was sirac street. But there was reviews about sirac street saying that it has lost quality, wet grip is nightmare etc. Also, I'm using 90 section mrf zapper kurve in front. So I don't think sticking to stock 100/90-18 will be a good idea. Please let me know the quality of sirac street or recommend me some other dual purpose 18 inch tyres. Also, is it fine to use zapper kurve in front and sirac at rear?

    I also visited store that deals with CEAT tyres. They have 100/80 17 ZOOM PLUS F for front and 140/60 R17 ZOOM RAD for rear. The thread pattern is similar to stock tyre. They rubber also appears to be soft-medium compound.

    Since the stock MRF tyres aren't available I was thinking of going with the CEAT as I need a tyre change urgently.

    Does anyone here switched to CEAT on gixxer? Or used the mentioned tyre above?
    If so how is the experience? Particularly high speed grip and cornering feedback.
    And also how does the tyre perform in wet conditions and braking?

    Help please!! Shall I go with the CEAT or search some other places for stock MRF?
    I want to stick to the stock tyre size and not upsize.
    I'm from Goa and my budget is 5.5K.
    What tyres did you finally change to?

    Default Re: Tyres - RX135

    Ok since I didn't get a response, will reply to myself

    Feedback on MotoD is that it's not an upgrade over stock in terms of performance (as all rounder) so I'm dropping the idea....

    Now thinking of going for 2.75x18 Zapper FS front and 3.0x16 Sirac Street rear.

    Riding conditions :


    1. RX135 5S
    2. Not a daily commuter.
    3. Terrain :
      • Bad bangalore roads + stone/dirt
      • Monsoon and wet riding
        1. One monthly road trip of continuous 80km (one way) to village
        2. Two or three longer road trips of 300km (one way)


    What are your opinions? What would be the merit to choose FS ? Or Should I go SIRAC front and back and be done with it?
