Just got two new MT66 Route Pirelli's mounted and balanced. Bike feels more "planted" now, but I was riding on 1993 Dunlop Qualifiers, so no wonder. Stayed with the 100/90 and 150/50 sizes. And had the splines lubed and the gear oil changed while the wheel was off. Done by Motorcycle Services in Hatboro, PA. I like these guys, they have a friendly and professional way. And the prices are reasonable, too. Anybody else go with the Pirellis??

I`m happy for you and the new rubber on your ride. That rear tire,150/50, :confused: has the lowest profile sidewall I`ve seen mentioned here. <G> That couldn`t be a typo could it? Enjoy the ride my friend.:smiley_th

I also had 1993 Dunlops and when I put the Metzler ME880's on it became a different bike! The old tires only had 3 years of use on them, the bike sat for more than 10 years without being ridden. It's like new now and the new tires make all the difference in the world. I went with the 110 in the front for the speedometer improvement and it does help alot.

My Pirelli's just came in from Jake Wilson. Based on what I read here, I went with the 110/90 on front. Got the Pirelli's 'cause I like them on my other bike. The Dunlops on my '89 are 12-22 years old! Got 8 oz. of moly paste for the splines and will do that too. Maybe get it done this weekend.
