Bridgestone - Battlax BT-45 Sport Touring Front Tire

This tire was purchased as a replacement for the K630F OEM tire for a 2006 250 Ninja. The OEM size is 100/80-16 but the size I bought was a 100/90-16. I did this to restore the bike's suspension geometry back to the way it was before I upsized the rear tire. The additional height of the 130/90-16 rear caused the steering to become a little jittery. Replacing the front with the 90 series Bridgestone completely solved the handling issue. The steering on this bike is now rock-solid- in fact the bike handles better now with 13,000 miles on it than when it was new. I would recommend the 90-series Bridgestones as a replacement tire to anyone who wants to upgrade from the OEM Dunlop 80-series tires. You should replace them as a set- not one at a time like I did.

Factory replacement...I had no idea that my tires were as flat and worn as they were. I'm glad I got me some new rubber. It's a whole new bike! If you're THINKING about new tires, you probably need them.

Pleasantly surprised!!

These tires are great! They are dirt cheap but definitely worth more. Turn in is quick and they hold lines great. They're also great about not following tar snakes. Lightyears ahead of the excedras that came on my bike.

Great tire!

I've used these tires in the past on several different bikes and have never been let down. For a bike that can't take a modern radial tire these are about the best things going. They handle well, are great in the wet and last a respectable amount of mileage for how sticky they are. I got about 10k rear and 15k front out of my Ninja 250 and about 7k rear and 13k front on my GS700. Both bikes in mixed highway/city commuting with a bunch of fun rides in between.

good replacement

I replaced my factory tire on my 08 ninja 500R with this, along with a 140/70 rear. Its much better than the factory, the original was pretty worn, and at medium speed cornering I was starting to feel a slight wobble in it. I have had this tire on for a little over 1000 miles, and it seems good, I have rode through rain, and also a 300 mile trip on the interstate on a 95 degree day, no issues. good tire for the price.

Well. I have this tire for 2-3 months already on my Yamaha XT600. And I tested the limits of my bike. I think that I finally have the tire that I need for my type of ride. I did some stunts and was amazed how that thing is sticking to the ground. I did some stopies that I never could do before cause the tires were slipping like crazy.

Best tires for older bikes.

After running painfully expensive, allegedly sticky European tires on my '70s BMWs, the change to BT45s was a revelatory experience. For older bikes whose wheels require unfashionable sizes (e.g. 19" front, 18" rear), I think these Bridgestones are just the best by far. I've briefly run the BT45 front with a mismatched (Pirelli) back tire without trouble. But at the price, and given the sweet increase in performance, I'd definitely rather run BT45s front and rear.

Fitted to a 2001 Kawi W650. Tires are really good so far after just a few hundred miles. Can't say yet about extreme braking, tread life or wet conditions but they corner very well indeed and are straight-line stable. They seem to be very well adapted to the W650.
