      Comments about Pirelli MT 66 - Route Motorcycle Tire:

      Bought my 1st pair last year for my 08 Roadstar 1700. After I left the dealership after installation, I noted a dramatic difference in road feel. These, hands-down, are the smoothest tires I've ever riden on. A month later I ordered 2 more complete sets as I love good deals and these are a great deal. Took them on a 23 day 6214 mile trip through the Western States and 2 Provinces and tires were great in all conditions. They track straight and you don't feel every single crack in the ashphalt like some tires out there. Highly recommend them!

      Comments about Pirelli MT 66 - Route Motorcycle Tire:

      I had a M66 on my VL1500Kt 3 years ago and last year I replaced it at about 14,000 miles or more. I replaced it with a supposedly comparable Shinko and am replacing it now at about 4,000 miles or less with another M66. Although the Shinko was cheaper and handled well it did not begin to compare to the M66.

        Replaced a worn out set of 880 Marathons with these Pirelli's and I love them! They are every bit as good, maybe even a better feel then I remember the Metzelers being when they were new. Will be picking up another set for my wifes bike when that time comes. Also, shipping was only 48hrs to my door!

        Comments about Pirelli MT 66 - Route Motorcycle Tire:

        I replaced an OEM Dunlop on my Yamaha V Star 650 Classic and I must say this is an upgrade! Instantly I could tell the tire road better and handled better also. Has a very good deep tread pattern. I have just installed this tire so I cannot comment on mileage as yet and will have to do an update review later...however based upon other reviews the tire should wear great. The other reviews on this tire convinced me to give it a try...so if you read this review I hope you will give it a try also. By the way, Bike Bandit is great! Sent me an email with a coupon after they saw I had put the tire in my cart but not ordered yet. Fast ship and great customer service. The chat on line is wonderful. I highly recommend Bike Bandit!

        • Q:

          My husband put a set of the MT66 on his 1984 Harley Sportster. It's been 1 year and the front is still good but the rear is bald.
          I do ride with him about half of the time and we only ride recreational and probably have about 8000 miles on the tires. Is this a good life span for a tire? He seems to think it wore out to soon.

            Thanks for your question! This would be a good average mileage for your application. If you wanted longer life than this you may look into another style tire. If you need help making a choice please feel free to contact us.

        • Q:

          I bought a 1979 Honda CM400T and it needs a new rear tire. My manual recommends a 4.10S18-4PR. What's on the bike right now is a 130/90-16. I'm trying to figure out what the original tire size is and which tire I should order.

            A:

            Thank you for your question. My research material shows the rear tire on the 1979 CM400T to be a 4.60x 16. The 4.60x16 is equivelent to a 120/90-16 or a 130/90-16. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at Sales@bikebandit.com, Live Chat or by phone toll free at 888-339-3888. We are more than happy to help.

        • Q:

          I ordered one of these for my '09 VN900 and the invoice says tubeless, yet this wheel requires a tube type. No option for selecting one or the other.
          Is this tire tube/tubeless dependent on application?
          Thanks

          Your website lists two tires of the same size at two different prices...100/90-19 for $65 and for $72. They both have the same speed rating. Which is correct?

        • Q:

          I need a front tire for my 2003 Concours, the factory says it should be a 120/70-18, this Pirelli MT 66 has 1 listed for the front but only says 3.00-18 blackwall H bias, my wheel is 3.0, will this tire fit correctly & what the heck size is it as far as "120/70", 110/80 or what? I plan on getting the rear tire which is 150/80-16 because I would like a matched pair.

            Thanks for your question. A 3.00-18 is a 90/90-18 tire. A 120/70-18 converts to a 4.25-18.

        • Q:

          Looking for replacement tires for my new '84 Honda CB650SC Nighthawk and was wondering what would be a good size. Also, do the load index have to match with OEM tires? I think OEM tires have a load index of 56 for rear tire but these MT 66 are in the 70's. Thanks!

            Thanks for your question! For the front you will want the size 100/90-19 and the rear is size 130/90-16 and as long as the load rating is greater you are fine.

            Thanks for your question! You could most likely go to a 160/80-15. If you want to go bigger you'll need to measure the clearance in your swingarm.

            A:

            Good question! When going up in tire size the most usually recommended is a max of 10mm wider, being in your case for example a 190/70-15. You will have to take some measurements to see if you can accomodate a wider tire. It will increase the width by 5mms on each side of the tire and your rear swing arm.
