Default Re: FJR Tire Question: Pirelli vs. Metzeler

On behalf of the the other Chicago members I would like to welcome you and complain that the temperatures here are going to be below freezing all weekend. So you do MSF for UofI or NIU ? I'm going to do a few weekends as a range aide for NIU this season.

Default Oh, yeah. The topic.

A buddy at work has an FJR and I am passing along his comments - - -

The "B" model is the one recommended by Metzler for the FJR. The difference is that the "B" model has a reinforced multi-ply construction for bikes with gross weights over 935 lbs. The FJR is no where near that heavy but the re-inforced model is recommended to handle the high power output.

Below freezing isn't as bad as the below zero insanity we had last night. Chicago winters suck.

I had Metzlers on lots of my bikes and was loyal to them before finally putting Diablo Stradas on my Futura. I'm not sorry...I think they are among the best tires I've ever used.

Probably a harder rubber compound combined with more heavy duty tire construction for the extra pork.
