I like them.... had bonne for 12 yrs and it’s all that be on it ...they run two to one so next year it will be both... no road noise...I have full confidence in the tire...I have done some epic runs with full saddlebags, seat bag and rear rack fully loaded with camping supplies...I’ve road thought some bad storms... high winds all day at highway speed with extremely high road temperature...great tire....Rob H.

Mark Z on Jul 5, 2019
This is to be a replacement for another AM26, that I gave the Alaska torture test. It survived and performed excellently under all sorts of weather and road conditions. Would definitely recommend a set of these for anyone who rides a Kawasaki C10, with a 110/80-18 front and 150/80-16 rear. With a little over 7000 miles, the siping in the center of the rear is thin, but the front appears ready for another 7000 miles.
Alan N on Jul 1, 2019

Upgraded to a more modern tire for my vintage BSA MK III Spitfire. Previously had Avon AM6 and AM7's. Good tires but I needed a modern tire to go with the bike upgrades. I love the classic British handling.
Lawrence R on Jun 10, 2019

Tom J on Jun 9, 2019
I already have an AM26 front, so getting one for the rear seemed like the best choice. Also, the tire has good ratings.

D I on Apr 29, 2019
i have used these tyres in several bikes from 1960s and 70s, such as 1969 TR6R, 1975 T160. Grip well in dry and rain, good roadholding, tread lasts a long time, especially on the front. Sizes available to match original tyres, hence no problem with wider tyres fouling chain guards etc,

I have a 1988 Kawasaki Ninja 750 and I am looking for a good tire that will last a while with good performance and cornering. These tires seem like a good fit but I want to be sure I am buying the right tires for my bike. Although I am more of a casual rider, I would still like a tire that can keep up with the potential speed and agility of a Kawasaki. Would these tires be the way to go? Thanks!
kielbasa on May 14, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Yes these tires are an excellent choice for your application.

origanl tire is a 3.5 inch -18 which equates to a 90/90-18 but you have it listed as taking a 110/80-18 this is ti be used on a 2002 Triumph America. Can you clarify the size differance?
David D on Jun 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: David, thank you for the question. A 90/90-18 tire would have a sidewall height of 90 mm x 90 percent = 81 mm, about 8 mm (1/3 inch) less than the 3.50-18 tire. A 110/90-18 tire would have an approximate width of 4.3 inches (110 mm / 25.4 mm/inch) and a sidewall height of 3.9 inches, so it would be both wider and taller than the 3.50-18 tire. I was searching online for the "factory size" conversion and it calls for 110/80-18.

Why does the 120/80-17 have arrows going in different directions? Isn't the tread pattern important to water dispersal?
Steve J on Oct 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! You are correct, the tread pattern is important for water dispersal. There are some tires where you'd think the direction of the tread should go with the arrow on the sidewall but the way the tire was designed the arrow maybe facing the opposite of how the tire has been molded, tire may look backward but is correct.

This tire size 130/70/18 for the front wheel of my bike but the write up says its a rear tire. Will this tire work/fit the front wheel?
shorty on Nov 3, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Its not recommended to run a rear tire as a front application. The shape of the tire can adversly affect the handling and traction of the motorcycle. Below is a link to the Avon Cobra AV71/AV2 Tires which are avialable in the sizes needed for your bike:
http://www.bikebandit.com/avon-av72-cobra-motorcycle-tire
I have a 1977 Yamaha xs 400. The factory tire sizes are 90/90 18 and 110/90 18. I need to know the overall tire width for the Avon am 26 roadriders in 120/90 18 and 100/90 18 to make sure these tires will fit my swing arm and front forks. Thank you in advance for your help.
Keith on Oct 4, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The first number of the tire size specifies the width. 120/90-18 is 120 millimeters wide. The 100/90-18 is 100 millimeters wide. Now to find the convert the metric size to inches you divide the size by 25.4. ( example 120 divided by 25.4 equals 4.72 inches.) Almost 4 3/4".

My 88 FZ750 stock tire size is 130/80-18. Can I mount a 150/70-18 Avon AM26 on the stock 18 x MT3.00 rim ?
Marc on Aug 1, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! We can only recommend the stock tire size for your model.
Curious what the Avon 3.25 would be comparable height wise to a 100 90 19 Kawasaki W650 is what I am outfitting 130 80 18 is good for rear (am26) trying to put a 100 or 110 70 or 80 /19 up front recommended size is 90/90/19 but 90 is too tall looks bobberish and hits customized fender any suggestions?
Randall on Jun 2, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Good question! A 3.25 would be equal to 100/90, whether changing the size of your tire will work for you is something we cannot make an assement on and is based on clearance space between the width and height of the tire. We recommend consulting with a local technician on sizing before ordering. 100=width 90=aspect ratio or profile (100 to a 110 would be 10mms wider adding 5mms to each side between fork and sidewall of tire).
Will this rear tire replace an Avon Azaro 140/80 VB17 V250 tire that i have on my 1993 Suzuki Katana?
Dave on May 30, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Yes this tire would be an excellent replacement for your old tire.
I have a 1978 cb750f with the honda com-star wheels.. should i also install some tubes to go along with these avon tubeless tires..? i think i'd feel a little safer with tubes installed..
Russ on Sep 2, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Yes these tires will also work with tubes as well.
can i use a tubless tire with wire wheels or can i put a tube in? really like the lazertec.
Mack on May 2, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! if you wish to use a tubeless tire on a tube type rim you would need to run a tube also due to how the air would leave through the spoke holes.
I am replacing tires on a '79 Honda CB750F Supersport. My question is about the comparison of the 4.00-18 rear and the 110/90-18 rear tire. As a cross reference of the OEM tires on this bike, both of these should fit. My question is, what's the difference between the two and would one be more beneficial than the other? They will be used mainly for long distance highway and around town riding.
KawRider on Dec 28, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Our cross reference will list the 110/90-18 as comparable to the 4.00-18. We would suggest this size for the match on a 4.10-18 because the next size up will be larger than the 4.10-18 size.
Avon AM26 Recommendation?

I am looking for a 130/70(or 130/60)-17 rear tire for my Supermoto converted DR350 suzuki. I can't go to a 140, it slows me down too much. The little engine doesn't have the power to spin it.

Would this be a tire worth trying? Is it STICKY?
I need a tire that is primarily performance oriented, or dual-compound with soft shoulders at least.

What can you offer in that size, I can use a front tire also, because there is no torque to bother it. I'm running a 120/70 mich. Pilot Sport (front tire) on the rear now, with no problems, I'd just like a little more rubber under me.

Also, this is a bias ply tire - so would that cause handling issues with a front radial? (Mich. Power Race soft)

Thank you
Sedona on Nov 4, 2009
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! With the Avon Roadrider AM26 Motorcycle Tire that your looking at this one is more of a cruiser tire. The highest performance tire we offer in the 130/70-17 would be the Pirelli Sport Demon Motorcycle Tire located in the link below.

can i run tubes in tubless tires

i have a t120 bonniville would like to put modern sport tires on ?
f800st on Aug 20, 2009
BEST ANSWER: We have heard of many customers running tubes in a tubeless type tire and vise versa. To get this information we would recommend checking with the tire manufacturer to make sure it is ok for that exact tire.

I am running a set of AM26s on my Kawasaki C10. I just gave them a thorough test on a run from Northern California to Alaska and back. All types of road conditions, pavement, gravel, dirt, mud, with ruts, potholes, frost heaves, and dips. Wet or dry, the Roadriders performed perfectly, and the only time they felt weird was riding over the metal-decked bridges with the bars that don’t line up. After 8000 miles, there is not much center siping left on the rear tire, but the front looks like it has another 8000 miles of tread left.

So far so good. I'm restoring a 68' BSA Lightning to Spitfire specs and bought new alloy rims for it. I've always liked the cafe racer style. I relaced the rims and had them trued. My next step is to mount the new tires and have them balanced. The bike ran over 100 mph when I used to race it so the new 'V' rated tires were a nice upgrade. The bike should be well balanced.
