  • I need new tires for my 2006

    I have Dunlop E4's I like them but I am open to recommendations and best prices

    Bridgestone G709 is the best all-around front tire...

    Additional information like how much you ride (annually...) the styles of riding you do (aggressive, sedate...) would help as well.

      I'll tell you what I tell everyone (in a way kind of what kwthom stated)

      The only way you'll know what tire is Best for You?

      Is to try every brand out there.

      We have no idea what your--
      1. Road conditions are?.
      2. How hard or slow you accelerate?.
      3. What your braking habits are?
      4. How aggressive a rider you are?.
      5. How often you check your Psi?.
      6. What Psi you normally run?.
      7. How often you ride?.
      8. How many heat cycles your tires go through per you annual mileage?.

      See its not so easy a question to answer now is it after all the considerations in the equation.

        My '06 came with Dunlop E3's which got replaced with a 70-series E3 .

        Then I put on a Metzler ME880 ... which promptly decided to delaminate on me.

        My '16 came with the Bridgestone G709/G704 combination.

        Rocky's eight questions are valid - and would get you to a reasonably quick answer on your own.

        So, maybe a little history - tires that have been on this bike - the average miles ridden (and how long it takes...) would be great follow-up points for us.

          Interesting about the Metzler. My 2004 came with a Metzler on the rear when I bought it used and it delaminated as well. From what I remember, it was at about 8,000 miles.

          There hasn't been a substantial change in shoes for the Hondapotamus in quite some time.

        I'm perfectly happy with the Bridgestone G704 and 709 Exedra tires. Same as came on it new. Have tried other brands. Didn't see much difference. Shinko's were much less expensive but they didn't last as long, so the cost/mile was almost identical to other tires.

          My 08 came with E3’s, didn’t like them so I tried E4’s. Liked those less, so I tried Bridgestones and was sorely disappointed. Then I gave the new Metzler 888’s a try, on my second set now.

          it all depends upon what you like, or don’t. There is no one magic tire, and Rocky is spot on.
