    Honda SH300 Tyres

    Have any SH300 owners had to change tyres yet

    If so would be grateful if you could advise what you bought & rough cost

    Honda asking a lot of money for Bridgestones

    Many thanks

    Garry

    Re: Honda SH300 Tyres

     What sized tyres does the Honda run? Ive found Balmain Motorcycles pretty good with tyres.

    Daelim NS 125: Mighty 1st scoot from Korea that punched way above its weight. Sold
    Vespa GTS 250: Modern Retro brilliance. I'll ride it til it dies.Traded in on a maxi.
    Suzuki DR650: "That Thing" Excellent Single 650 thumper chook chaser that was too tall. Sold
    Yamaha T Max: Best Maxi out there and serious canyon racer. Sold
    Triumph Bonneville: Modern Retro brilliance with the sweetest parallel twin.
    BMW F800R: The Naked Hun. Great intro into sports bikes.
    Gilera Runner FXR 180: 2 stroke scooter missile from Piaggio.
    Gilera Nexus 500. Sexy like red Italian stilettos.
    Yamaha RZ250RR: Retro Japanese 2 stroke racer.

     Hi Pete

    FRONT 110/70-16 M/C 52P

    REAR  130/70-16 M/C 61P

    Balmain haven't got an offering on the correct size

    No Garry. With 3,800 ks on the clock they are still with tread.

    No big trips on my scooter, just suburban use for me.

    Good Luck.

     Can you put a 140/70-16 on the rear? Most brands seem to have this size for their 16's

    My Sym Citycom has the same rim size.

    Not a lot of manufacturers cater for our scoot tire sizes 110/70-16(52P) & 140/70-16(65P). I like these two:
    1.) Metzeler Feelfree (not the Wintec - no sizes for our scoot)
    2.) Pirelli Diablo

    People have good reports of the Michelin Gold Standard too.

     Sorry can't help you with prices as I;m in NZ.

    Hi Brad
    With the Bridgestone Hoop I got 16,000Ks on the rear of the yellow GTS although I probably should have changed them at about 12,000. They developed a square profile about then but still had good tread, then they started to scollop. Still they were a good tyre, better than the original Savas 4,000ks and the Pirellis 6,000ks up until to now and looking old. Pity about the Gold Standards. Good ride Sun. Look forward to you coming up for a run north. Show you some more good roads.
    Pete
