  1. Rear Tyre for the Yamaha XVS 1300
    I have had the same problem with the tire sizes there is nothing here in Australia other than Stones and Dunlop’s, I use to run Pirelli Night Dragon tires on my 1100 so went to get a set for my 1300 without giving it a thought and was told there is nothing available for that size looked up the Pirelli tires site and told them there are 2 tires that come close they are both Night Dragons one is 180/70/16 and the other is 180/65/16 sorry they side that size tire is not available in Australia the front is not a problem 130/90/16 so even rang the Pirelli tires importers and they said the same thing and suggested i try to import them from the states as they have different size tiers to us here, so I have imported 2 sets of 180/70/16 and 2 sets of 130/90/16 $849.00 landed at my door. What I carnt understand is if I can buy this from the states with no problem why carnt they have a supply of them hear in Australia](*,)
