Yeah, dang, beat me to it. That would be 3x cheaper than fixing the brakes on my BMW.

haha, I read the reviews...here's my low-level 15 minute google sesh:

rear:
$63.30 shipped - IRC Road Winner RX-01 - 3.5 stars on revzilla with many reviews stating that they don't stay warm very long, poor grip, but good tread life
$67.82 shipped - Shinko SR741 - 4.4 stars on amazon - many comments of "good overall tire for the price", good traction, while 1 review said poor tread life, most others said they were on par or better than sticky tires
$68.88 shipped - Kenda K671 cruiser tire - also good longevity, relatively good grip
$72.99 shipped - Michelin pilot 61502 - can't find any reviews
$76.88 shipped - Avon Streetrunner AM83 - minimal reviews, but rated well

front:
-$52.58 - shinko SR740 - rated well, mates with SR741 rear

I also ran Shinkos (granted different ones) on the Vstrom 650...excellent handling in turns and pretty good tread life. The Ninja 500R is on-par power wise, so I am confident it will be a good tire choice. The Busa, however, in its rightful duty as a marvel of machinery, is getting another Michelin Pilot Road 3 mounted for $190 + mounting  :o

when you sell a bike to an ocmoto member, you are selling it into a community....of these jokers  :32:

new tires mounted!

and since my winch is acting up in the truck...I rode it back...in the rain...on brand new tires  :32:



rear:



front:



surprisingly, even on brand new tires, in the rain...wide open throttle in a straight line did not break the tire loose
