Product Details

OE fitment for Honda XL80S and XL500S. Designed primarily for dual sport use, this long-wearing, 4-ply front/rear combination tire has self-cleaning tread blocks that still give a traction edge for muddy and loose terrains. Special dimpled tread pattern means many edges, which helps maximize traction. Unique front/rear combination provides balanced highway and off-road performance.

Comments about Bridgestone Trail Wing TW9 Motorcycle Tire:

There are no other choices in this size tire, that I could find. It seems to do ok though. It goes down the road & corners well. Between 75 & 85 mph the bike gets pretty wiggly & light, but that just may be the bike. It's a 1980 Honda XL500S. Seemed good off road, but the other tire was wore out & we have nothing to compare it to.
The tire was very hard to put on, that may be normal, since I haven't done one since the 70's. I had all the right tire equipment to; Powder, Soap, 3Pc Tire iron kit.

Comments about Bridgestone Trail Wing TW9 Motorcycle Tire:

We used this tire to replace the 16" front tire on a KDX80. It is difficult to find a front replacement tire for this bike and I was very happy Bridgestone still makes this tire. My son rides this bike exclusively off-road so the cross sport was not the best choice but it was the only choice.

Comments about Bridgestone Trail Wing TW9 Motorcycle Tire:

Outstanding company. Went to local shop that wanted way more for the same tire. Even after I got the tire mounted I still saved money. Great OEM replacement. Found my new favorite store on line!

Service and delivery comments:

Great customer service!

Comments about Bridgestone Trail Wing TW9 Motorcycle Tire:

I installed these tires the day before a BMW rally where I participated in a lengthy GS event. After over 150 miles of off pavement riding (dirt, gravel, sand and a little mud) I am certain that they perform better than the Metzler Tourances I had previously and they cost less besides. Hopefully they will last as long and wear equally well.

Service and delivery comments:

Fast shipping, outstanding search tools and super selection.

  • Q:

    I have a 1978 Honda XL250S with the fairly unique 23" front wheel. I think that the Bridgestone TW9 is a match for this cycle, but want to check if my sources are correct. Does the TW9 fit the 78 front wheel?

  • Q:

    This looks like the correct size tire to replaced on my 03 xr80r which has on it a 2.50 - 16 tire. Bridgestone Trail Wind TW9 part # 42049.

    Could you confirm this will fit my application and I need to know which tube size to order as I see 3 different size choices for 16 rims for Bridgestone tubes? I have never ordered a tube or tire before thanks.

      Thank you for your question. The 2.50 - 16 is the correct size for your machine. You will need to choose a tube of that same size 2.50-16. If your having trouble , please contact our sales team.
