Brutale 750 Tyre combination

Hi there,

I just ordered two new tyres for my brutie, and to be honest I don't know much of it yet (just driving for 2-3 months). He asked me the measurements of my current tyres they are 120/65 and 190/50. He told me trust me I'm changing your front tire to a 120/70 it will drive much better. Ofcourse I believe him but still I love to check with you pro's to be sure and to learn a thing or two about it. Any ideas?


Thx in advance!


Gilles

Thanks a million Red Baron! I'm calling my dealer right now to change the order. Didn't see those threads.

May run into clearance issues with front tire...but maybe not, depends on the brand and model tire. Will also change steering geometry somewhat. You may not notice.

The rear is kind of big for the 750. Try the 180 instead.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Is it a big difference? I mean will the bike turn smoother with the smaller tire in the rear or? Sorry for the ignorance



Cheers Gilles

Slower steering with the wider tire....but again, you may not feel anything, and brand and model tire makes a big difference. Every tire has its own profile and there can be big variances in handling characteristics within the same sizes.

What kind of tires are you getting?

The 120/65 front tire is pretty rare these days. I am running 120/60 front and 180/55 rear Michelin Pilot Pure on my SPR 750. Handles very well indeed.

Pirelli shows a 120/60 and a 120/70 front in your tire choice.

The 750 came standard with 180/55 rear but lists the 190/50 as an option.

The good news is the suspension can be adjusted to get the chassis balance you want regardless of tire choice. The front tire clearance is the only question mark.

Michelin 120/70 fits ok on the 750 Brut, been running those for years since the 65 became hard/impossible to get in a road tyre. 190/50 on the rear, works fine for me.
