This is a good tire at a moderate price. Time will tell on the performance and longevity aspects.

Great service on a great tire . Installed myself will see how the tire wears,this is my first Metz

efaber4 on 7/7/2014

Its hard to find matching tires for my bike. This is the second set like this that I have used. I got good milage out of them (15-18K). The front could have been left on for about another 5K at least. Decided to change out as a set. For the set about $120 cheaper than any bike shop.

Important Product Notes

It is the customer’s responsibility to refer to their owners manual for proper size, load and speed ratings for their specific motorcycle before choosing a tire. J&P Cycles® is not liable or responsible whatsoever for any claims for damages or injury subsequent to the fitting of tires.
