    Great tires at a good price

    By Bob753

    from Chicago, IL and racetracks all over the country

    Comments about Dunlop GT501 Motorcycle Tire:

    I've used the GT 501 on my 1970 Honda CB 750 race bike for two seasons now. They give great, predictable grip under the most abusive cornering situations. And for as well as they grip they last a good long time. I would suggest them to anyone that rides an older bike.

    Also great is Bike Bandit's customer service. Michelle did a great job of making sure I got the freshest possible tires for the start of my 2009 racing season. Thanks Michelle!

            Thanks for your question! Unfortunately this would not be recommended to put that tire on the front. If you could give us a call we would be glad to find a suitable replacement.

        • Q:

          I'd like to buy this tire to replace a worn front. However, the size I need (130/70/17) is listed as a rear tire. Can and will this affect performance and can this tire fit on a 2005 Kawasaki Mean Streak VN1600B for the front tire?
