New tires for the bike. Avon 160!

160 rear 110 front! Saw someone on here fit these on his 750 so figured I’d give it a try. Installed tomorrow!

Got them installed, they Handle and look 100x better than the Michelin’s that were on there and fit without any issues/modifications!

Not doubting you. I am no fan of Michelin's. But until you really get out a run a new set . Hot , cold, rain asphalt ,concert ,Fast ,slow and every other condition it is hard to make a real judgement.
