    Interesting idea as there's arguements for and against. Hopefully I'll be able to to a bit of tyre testing next year and get a better idea.

        Bump,

        Looking for thoughts on tires and sizes for RGV, any new suggestions in the last 10 years? Will only be doing street riding, so something that is suitable for the road is ideal. Slim to no chance of track riding.

        Cheers.

          I'm just amazed someone uses the words "running" and "RGV" in the same sentence.
          Trying to think of a wise and sincere signature quote, but the only words that leap to mind are, "TITTY SPRINKLES"

            I believe Bridgestone do S20, and maybe RS10/S21 in RGV sizes.

            They're all great tyres.

            Also... eek. had my RGV for 10 years now. It was working for at least half of that

              I believe that you could import a front rim of a GSXR400 GK76 (it is 3.5" wide) from Japan, so will fit a 120/70 Tire.

              Something like this

                Thanks man! Mine is "technically" currently working. Just needs a touch more love before it's safely ridable haha.
