Past history using this tire on my American Ironhorse Texas Chopper has been positive. Even wear and smooth ride. Extend the life of the tire by adding 3 ounces of Dyna Beads when you mount it.

will the Metzeler me 200 sires fit my stok mag rear rem 2004 triumph speed master
Louie on Mar 23, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question.

Your machine calls for a 170/80/15 so you owlud have to find out how much clearance you have to go up for your rear tire. On most occasions you can go to a 180 or 190 but going to a 200 you may not have clearance for that.
Will this tire fit my 02 GSXR-1000 trying to bump up to 200
Dino on Mar 15, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question.

Your original tire calls for a 190/50/17 so upgrading to a 200/50/17 will not be an issue.

Boy on Mar 8, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! This will be 20mm wider, so you will need to measure your clearances.
I have 02 Gsxr 1000 and my tire size is 190 and im trying to move up to a 200 what size would fit my bike
Dino on Mar 7, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! You will need to measure your clearances to make sure you can run that sizing.

what size fits on a gsx r 1995 1100 i want to put a 210 on it can i do that
david1100 on Sep 27, 2009
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Your stock tire sizing would be a 120/70-17 for the front and a 180/55-17 for the rear. When you go to a 210 thats going to be 20mm wider, you would need to measure your clearances to make sure you can run that sizing.

The fit is perfect
This is the stock replacement for my American Ironhorse Chopper and is the perfect fit. My last tire was a Michelin Commander II but it rubbed the belt and tail lights wiring. This tire is zero degree steel belted radial and now I know how important this can be. It comes straight up from the rim and gives me the clearance required. While these do not get as many miles the grip is awesome.

Astronomical tire best I ever bought. You have to get this tire.
I own a XV 1900 Raider, original tire size 210/40 18. I decided that I wanted a better tire, 1600 miles on a tire just was not an option, so I went with Bike Bandits Metzeler 240/40 18. What a massive difference. This tire has astronomical handling and grip even in the wettest conditions. Thanks Bike Bandit.
