Anywhere between 4k & 7k depending on how you ride, I changed my after 2k because I was sick of having to clean out my underwear
didn't you only do 3.5k the whole time you had the bike tho ?


Conti's or Z6's are way to go dude
Don't think Cloggsy liked it when we were in the rain.. lack of grip compaired to the Metz Z6's. thats why he changed them.

You are more than welcome to have a ride on my bike, currently fitted to with Roadattacks. Personaly, anything is better than stock rubber.

*Realises im about to go on about my tyres, so logs off*

Thanks for the info guys! My standard japanese D220's are lying in the boot of my wife's car at the moment Fitted some Michelin Pilot Race tyres to the SV (Given to me very very generously by justmacsv650 for the price of a round of drinks next weekend ) and so far I really really like them. Only done a few miles on them but they seem to inspire a lot more confidence around the bends...
