My tires are beyond old so I ordered pirellis angel urban tire. Front was 51 rear was 63. Date code 21 cant wait to get them mounted Monday. Shops are all backed up. Only found a couple happy reviews, no negative so hope they roll true.

Enjoy! I ordered the Pirelli Rosso Diablos for my Forza last month. Simply because they were out of stock on the Angels. Great tires so far!

What size Angel did you put on front I can't seem to find a 120/80/14 listed only 120/70/14 in P speed rating?  93MPH.  SW has a 64S rated tire.   112MPH  I tried a rear once very uneven wear but I ride at a good pace most of the time.Tires just arrived bike bandit Img_2011

Center is at wear bars with lots of tread on sides and chopped.  Other than that grips great no slips or slides.

I did find a listing 120/80/14 but for a rear tire still P rated if that's the case it will have to mounted in reverse rotation for the front.

Not sure if it will make a big difference /80 or /70. Maybe someone will know for sure. On my Forza I had to go with a 150/70x13 on the rear instead of the OEM 140/70x13. Bike Bandit and the Forza forums said it will be fine and so far it is! The Diablos handle very well.

new tires are on. cost 250 to mount and balance. ride is worth it. the rear angels can go on front or rear. directional arrow left or right front or rear. 120 70 14 its 70%sidewall vs stock 80% sidewall. wider is better

Gulp… $250. I gather you rode the bike in and had the shop do all the work.

I would be concerned about putting on a tyre with a lower speed rating, regardless of how slow or gently you ride.

I paid nearly $300 to have a local tire shop mount the new Pirellis on my Forza. That said, there is only ONE tire shop in town that WILL install bike tires (in Ely, NV). Otherwise I trailer it at least 200 miles...I do not have the tools or desire to do the job myself. With gas prices, I just suck it up.

Weird thing is we do have a Kawasaki dealer in town that sells dirt bikes and ATV, UTV's but they won't install street bike tires...I asked.

I'm lucky, the local Suzuki dealer is only a couple of miles away, and they fitted the ContiMove 365's to my Silver Wing while I had a coffee and bacon sandwich in town. The local Yamaha dealership also fit tyres, as does the SYM dealer, and the Piaggio dealer where I used to get the Silver Wing MOT'd fit tyres too.

The idea of fitting new tyres yourself or having them fitted to loose wheels is fine. But the average British household garage fits one European sized car and it's usually filled with everything but a car.

I've taken loose wheels off BMW's and MZ's to get new tyres fitted as removing front or rear was as simple as taking a pushbike wheel off. With maxi scooters it's a lot faffing about I can do without, so taking it a dealership where fitting new tyres is a daily routine works for me.

As long as you let them know in advance there's puncture sealant or balance beads in the wheels, let them get on with it while you go for your coffee and a bacon sandwich.

I used to carry my removed wheels to local dealer years ago when it was $15 a wheel, when it crept up to like $30 and a bent brake rotor claim denied Sad , I got my own equipment equipment, I've mounted my own tires for years, I gave away the tire mounter/balancer because I was done with big bikes, I mount scooter tires manually, F+R tires is usually a all day or 2 day affair, but I get to look at, check other things and clean area well, fortunate to have tools and space. IME have always found missed details when taking cars to dealers and I only do so for warranty issues, don't thrust them, not because their skill set, is because they are production by the hour shops, get it in, get it out and they are humans(Human Factors).
