been a great tire for the last year, has held the road and grip when warmed up is phenomenal. If it wasnt for a bolt going through it I would still be riding right now!

It’s the same tire as I had before!!!
Jeremy T on Jun 10, 2018
This will be my second rear M3. First one still has tons of tread left after about 3k miles. But due to a gaping hole from what I assume was a nail, I have to replace it. I have tried many different tires on my 95 Honda CBR1000F Hurricane and none have made me feel as comfortable and confident anytime wet or dry at any angle. I will continue to buy these tires until they stop making them. I use this bike to commute 80 minutes a day plus the cruise with friends often.
David T on May 31, 2018
Absolutely great tire. Sticky tire with good mileage on my ZX1400R.
Tertius J on May 18, 2018

ian e on Nov 30, 2016
I have used this rear tire in the past and I remember getting good mileage and performance. Low price was also a big selling point.
Ed M on Oct 30, 2016
I ran M3s on my Honda, and Kawasaki. They performed well, especially in wet weather. That was important for me as South Florida is notorious for its sudden, and serious storms. These will be run on a Yamaha FZ-1 that's heavier than the Honda, and Kawi, but I'm expecting the same performance.
William B on Sep 12, 2016
The reviews were solid and for the commute these are a great all around tire. Looking forward to placing some miles on these to test wear and handling
Andrew J on Aug 25, 2016
This is the same tire I had on my bike and it performed flawlessly! They just don't last forever!

My zx636 (2002), has front tyre : 120/65-17, but all the new tyres are 120/70-17. With the new tyre, the geometry becomes more "slow". What adjustments do i have to do , in order to keep the same geometry. To put lower the "triple tree clamp", but how many mm ? To get a wider rear tyre that will lift the bike, or to lift the rear suspension ?

thanks in advance
( Bill from Greece )
Bill A on Aug 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Bill, thank you for the question. The width of the tire will be identical but there will be a 6mm difference in sidewall height. I am not convinced that you will notice a difference or that the geometry will be that much slower. Are you sure your ZX636 is a 2002? If I am not mistaken, the first year of the ZX636 was a 2003 and that used a 120/65-17 front tire. In 2002 there was a ZX600 (ZX-6) which used a 120/60-17 and a ZX600R (ZX-6R) which used a 120/65-17. (UPDATE: I did some research and found that in 2002 it was named the ZX-6R but was actually 636cc and had 636 stickers). Kind of confusing but either way I would recommend for you to ride with the new front tire and try to feel it out before making any changes, or sticking to the OE recommended sizes. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll-free at 1-888-339-3888. We are always more than happy to help.
I have 140/70/17 why is this size not offered?
David L on Jun 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: David thank you for the question. Do you have the 140/70-17 in this specific tire? It is currently not available in that size. I'm not sure if it was available before and possibly got discontinued, or if it has ever been offered in that specific size. Attached is a link to all of the tires we do offer in that size.

Just put a set of M3's on my 2003 Kawasaki ZRX-1200. Right away felt the difference. Very smooth and great feeling tires. Haven't had them on that long but my initial reaction is very positive. I run Metzeler's on my Harley as well and have had very good luck with this brand in the past. Would highly recommend.

Great value for a quality tire.
I dont have much road time on this tire but the profile suggests it should corner nicely. I have read a lot of good reviews on this tire, especially wet traction.
