I had the OE Dunlops replaced at 1000 miles as I didn't like them. Tyre fitter struggled to balance the front; we found that the casting/machining is a mile out. The front currently has 100g to balance it, 80g to balance the bare rim. Anyone else experienced this?

Still on OE tyres but will keep my eye on this. Will be taking it to the dealer I bought it from when it's time to change, just in case. Personally I think these tyres suit the bike and I'm usually a Michelin PR fanboi. Had no issues with them and will be needing to change the rear before my trip in September. Torn between a full set of PR 3s or 4s or just the Bumflop UK replacement then a full set after......
I've had both the 3 and the 4 on my VFR1200. The 3 gives better front feedback in my opinion.
That's interesting Rees, I've had 2 and 3's not tried the 4's. What was the tyre wear like between the two, I found the 3's had a lower mileage life than the 2's. Sorry don't know about the OE tyre and rim having balancing issues - will find out in a few weeks.
I got over 9k from the 3's on my VFR1200. Sold the bike with the 4's on it. They had done over 4k and were fine.
What you doing with the old tyres? Can I have em?
You can buy them. £80 +p&p
Can you PM a pick of the wear on them I'm interested.
Will do when I get home
Hey Rees Mills good to see you on here. Where do you go for you tyres, I need to replace the PR3 on my Fazer for PR4's I'm told FWR or Watling, what do you think?
