MexicoMike said:I had (by previous owner) a 120/18 on the rear and a 100/18 on the front. As noted above, I couldn't really get the rear to align properly without rubbing so it was never properly aligned though a lot of miles was put on it with no obvious problems as far as handling was concerned. Recently , as part of my conversion from Roadster to Fastback, I removed the 18" wheels and put new oem 19" wheels/Avon 4.10x19 tires back on the bike. I much prefer them though I'm sure the rear will wear out relatively rapidly compared to that 120x18.
Actual tire widths vary by manufacturer and for whatever reason they keep that info secret. Is anyone running the 120/90-18 Conti Classic Attack?
No offence, but you chose to use a 12 year old thread....the opening question of which was:Avon is the only tire manufacturer that i can tell that publishes that info. I'm asking about the Conti's and specifically the 120/90s. No offense, but if you don't have that tire, you're not answering my questions
Also interested in feedback on 120/90 BT46s
Why do you say that? A 90/90 works perfectly with a single disc on a race circuit, several of us have evidence of that.A 90-90 is rather small for the disc brake up front?
Is anyone running the 120/90-18 Conti Classic Attack?
Nice idea, but I'll be damned if I'll waste time swapping tires twice. Over my shoulder....I've said it 37 times but obviously 38 is required. !00/90 Roadriders on 2.5 inch rims is the absolute best combination. When the rear wears out, put the front on the rear and the new one on the front. Great handlng, stopping and extended tyre life. No compromises this way.
