  1. Anybody had a play on these yet? Jason at Bob Jane swears by them over Arrowmax GT501's for smaller bikes - anybody confirm his comments?

  2. Hmm - OK - looks like these are really popular

  3. Never even heard of them? Have you tried Power's?
     
  4. Powers aren't available in my size - need 110/80-17 and 140/70-17.
     
  5. I put Bridgestone BT45's on Brigitte's FZR250, the bike handles great, wear is good, I think traction is good.
     
  6. Yeah - BT45's are s'posed to be good too - currently using Dunlop GT501's and the front is good though back is ~50% but with a little sidewall "rot" next to the bead and have a few thousand k's planned between now and mid April so figure I'll replace it now. Could replace just the back with another 501, or alternatively think about replacing both ends - in which case maybe the Activ's??

    Any thoughts?
