    Though the machine will try do it without any scratches, eventually there will be a few scratches. If you're lucky you escape without any. It also depends on the way the tire installation guy does it.

    Ripping the tire apart, is a cumbersome job than actually removing the tire itself.

    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    Posted this on FZ25 thread, reposting it here since it's related to tyres.

    Hi,
    After 2.5 years and about 17.5K KMs on stock tyres, I am looking to change my tyres. Main reason is that the bike is not stable under hard braking. My usage is strictly commuting with one or two long distance ride (~500KM round trip) a year. I am not looking to upgrade the tyres as I feed the stock size is adequate for the power on offer.
    If budget is not a concern and if I expect at least 15K mileage out the pair,
    1. What are my options if I am going for stock size?
    2. Is it advisable to downgrade the rear?
    3. Post changing the tyres, anything else that I would need to perform
    4. And finally, any suggestions for a shop around Salt Lake area in Kolkata would be helpful

    Thank you for your help.

    Look for metzeller sportec street and Michelin pilot sport street in 140/70-17 or 150/60-17 size for rear and 110/70-17 for front, will work best for your usage pattern, and good life too, 20-22k kms easily, the metzeller streets are around ₹ 9k and Michelin streets around ₹ 11k.

    Bro if stock size is preferred,then try mrf masseter.they are bit hard to get from dealers as they dont stock them.ultimately you can call mrf customer care and tell them you need those tyres.they will arrange for you.i also got mine for my pulsar 220,in this way.

    These are good tyres grip is good,weather on dry or wet.i am using them,dint found any problems.and braking has impoved a lot.
    This is for rear tyre.

    Try the new Apollo Alpha s1. Very good dual compound tyre. Few friends are using it.
