It actually looked wider before mounting. Seems to be a tad taller so I'm not worried so much about scraping pegs on tight turns.


What pipes are those???

Tire on left is the Bridgestone Exedra 180 and the Elite 3 200 is on right.

Not too much difference in the look of the wider 200 however there is enough change for me to feel better turning performance and a little easier on the bumps. Maybe due to a tad more rubber on the road.

I'd say for about 50 bucks more, possibly at the end of tire life on the dunny, I'll say it was worth it. If I was rolling in $$, such things might not matter quite as much. I need to get my moneys worth.

>For you long time 1800 owners, do you know if rear tire difference will affect the accuracy of the speedo?

Yes on a little better wear. Harder the compound the BETTER the wear.

My tire looked like that once but I kept riding and just checking at each fill up. I was 100 miles from home when I spotted this...



Ended up having my wife come get me...
