Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life BT-45V This is my second set so I came back to a good thing. Ride-ability is very good in all areas. Reasonable pricing, in fact, Motorcycle Superstore matched the other guys price. Another reason to come to what you know! Mileage is 8000-9000, which could be better but you give a little to get a lot. The price makes the difference. I ride from Fresno to Vegas 6-8 times a year on my Concours at high speeds two-up and I feel very confident. John B. - May 22, 2013 (clovis, CA) Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life Excellent Tire!! I put this tire on my 86' Yamaha FZX700 and it's a superb tire to say the least, I have over 7000 miles on it and have plenty of tread left! It handles great in any and all conditions I've paired it up against, and highly recommend it as I will continue to use this tire from here on out. I ride aggressively when it comes to cornering/canyon carving and have noticed it wears much faster on the edges of the tire than the main center tread patch. James - February 07, 2013 (Nipomo, CA) Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life Like riding on flypaper First, the tire came redonkulously fast. Put this on the front of my '84 CB700--one of the few tires available in recommended size. Tire already has 1k miles on it, zero complaints, still look great. Very sticky. I've hit a lot of edge traps, gravel roads (construction), and some really twisty roads, and the tire did everything I asked of it. I'm putting one on the back when the time comes. Jason - September 27, 2012 (Jersey City, NJ) Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life '09 Ninja 250r For my daughter's bike. She had complained about the stock IRC's feeling "greasy" and small. A newbe, (3yrs) she claims greater stability and positive feedback. Comparing them to the old, indications are that she is leaning further into turns. Ignore "Tread life" stars...no data yet. As usual, MSS delivers. My only complaint is that my, now former, local bike shop slapped me with $45 PER TIRE! to spoon them on...and I did the R & R. Next time, I'll definitely try the MSS installer... Rich - July 24, 2012 (Southern, VT) Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life Solid Tire I mounted this tire on the front of my 85 V65 Honda Sabre. I hand mounted and balanced the tire. It mounts well: secure but not too stiff to mount by hand. It balanced without much weight. It rides smooth. The round profile offers predictable handling at any lean, when compared to square or sharp tire profiles that are either reluctant to lean in or want to immediately fall into a steep lean angle. There is adequate grip for my riding habits, providing plenty of confidence. Wayne - July 24, 2012 (Plano, TX) Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life bt45v Not as sticky as I'd like, but a great tire on an old bike. My past use of these tires has always been positive, and I don't expect less of this one. Bill - July 17, 2012 (simi valley, CA) Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life BT-45V I Installed this on my 2000 VMax, paired with a Shinko 150/90V-15 Rear Tire. I'm very happy with it's straight line and Cornering Performance so far. No Front nd wobble and very stable in twisties/sweepers. I can't speak to Tread life yet because I've only had it on for about 1 Month so far. If it lasts a decent length of time I will definitely purchase another when it's needed. Dennis - June 29, 2012 (Buffalo, NY) Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life Best of both worlds Great tire for my 81"GS1000g. She has eaten most tires alive at 700+lbs and my heavy English ride style. Tire holds under heavy knee down games of tag on are rough log and coal roads. Smooth power transfers between compounds. It's the A4 and the Pilot all in one! Ride safe, Ride smart, wear your leathers, Love the day. Wolfgang - January 26, 2012 (RVA, VA) Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life Love this tire I installed this tire on the front of my 86 ZG 1000 and I love it. The tire inspires confidence right from the start. I have no idea how long it will last but if it goes over 10,000 miles I will be very happy. I can't wait to try the matching rear. Jeff J - November 18, 2011 (Tucson, AZ) Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life Great tire for older bikes I used to run Avon Venom tires on my '77 BMW R100 and really liked them, sadly I recently went from spoked wheels to OEM cast wheels so was looking for new tires. I settled on the BT-45V after reading about them on the internet. Mileage is still to be determined but handling is very good. They are a fast tire design which gives a quick steering/handling feel and so far I haven't managed to break traction while leaned over and I have pushed them to the edge of the tread. johnny - October 24, 2011 (sin city, CA) Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life great tire for old bikes So far, I've been on the new tires, BT45V, for only about a month but they are the tire I was looking for. Great profile makes the tire fast but not so much so that it is a surprise. The tires give the feel of stability and predictability. I've not had them in rain yet so I can't comment to that. These are great tires for an older bike. Johnny - October 10, 2011 (San Francisco, CA) Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life Good value for the money Just got the 2 tires installed - Looks and handle nice. Desi - October 10, 2011 (Austin, TX) Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life Battlax BT-45 Front Tire Replaced the front tire on my 05 Concours and very satisfied. This is a six hundred pound bike and it handles it just fine. Boyd A. - September 29, 2011 (Camden, AR) Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life BT45V One of the best tires I have ever run on my Suzuki GS1000G shaft drive bike, cornering is great, good stability, good wet traction and no crack chasing even with a little over 9000 miles on them, still very impressive. I will be replacing them before I take off for my 3500 mile trip in November, but I will be installing another set. Can't offer enough praise for these tires. H.Fisk - September 27, 2011 (hinsdale,, NH) Stability Cornering Dry Traction Wet Traction Tread life Sticky Goodness These were my first pair of new tires to replace the standard set that came with my Ninja 250. WOW, what a difference! I immediately felt like I was sticking to the road and even grooves in the ride are practically undetectable now. I got these just before a 1200-mile tour, and I can say for sure that if I didn't have these tires, I don't think I'd have handled the twisties as well. NOTE: I don't have experience with Wet Traction of Tread Life because I just got them, so I gave them 3 stars.
