According to reviews it's a good tire for wet weather and that is what I need
Octavio C on Jul 28, 2019
This will be my second rear of these. I like the way they work on the twisties and how they work on wet roads, because it always seems to rain when I go for a ride.
Mike L on Jul 22, 2019
I enjoyed them on my Harley Superglide and my Ducati Diavel. I'm hoping they are from the USA factory.
Brian F on Jul 21, 2019
Good comments from others.
Don L on Jul 15, 2019
Have used Pirelli tires and I am well pleased with their performance and value. Lasted 3 times longer than the tires I had before.
J.Salyer on Jul 4, 2019

Reid M on Apr 13, 2019
have used these on several of my bikes. They hold up well, work well in rain and give a confident feel in the dry.
Marc on Apr 2, 2019
I've heard good things about these tires and the reviews were rather positive. Price seemed fair. Please note: I know how to determine the year the tires were made. Please do not send me old tires. Thanks for your understanding. J.W.
Jerry W on Mar 24, 2019
Tires have a good rating. Had a set of these tires in the past.
john a on Mar 22, 2019
'14 CB1100 has an "odd' combination of tire size, but Pirelli has a matched set. I know the brand name speaks for itself, and the BikeBandit price is great.

Tim on Sep 20, 2018
It's a super tire. My BMW came with them so obviously I wanted a match. BikeBandit prices and service is absolutely the best out there.
Walter on Sep 12, 2018
been running them for a long time--they don't follow tar snakes.
STEPHEN M on Sep 5, 2018
Great daily commute tires....
daniel s on Aug 13, 2018
I ride hard in the mountains of North Carolina. These tires give me great traction in all kinds of situations and great mileage to match! Mountains EAT tires like popcorn. I usually get 6K to 8K miles out of a set.

Will a 150/80 16 tire fit on the rear of a 1983v65 Honda?
Willy B on Jan 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! This size will be slightly bigger that was came on it originally. Since this size is bigger it may come in contact with suspension components. We recommend using the original size tire. 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.

How are these on a heavier bike? Like a Harley Davidson Dyna
Bill K on Mar 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Bill, thank you for the question! The Pirelli Sport Demon Motorcycle tire is a bias ply type tire which means its sidewalls are strong. However, one thing we have to consider is the load weight rating. These tires are made specifically for a sport touring application and would be pushing the weight limit on your Harley Dyna. 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 am looking for a set of skins for a 1977 Suzuki GS550. I can find the sizes, but the tires are often tubeless. The stock wheels are spoked and run tubes. Is it ok to run a tube in a tubeless tire?
Mike M on Jun 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Mike, you can run a tube in a tubeless tire. 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.
What size demon would u recommend for a 1983 v65 Honda magna? I'm currently using one on the front but in able to find a 140/90-16 for the rear to match. I'm a casual rider but she loves the corners to the fact we aren't afraid to drag highway pegs on occasion.thank u.

I am using Front Sport Demon as rare tyre on My Pulsur 150cc
I want to know it is suitable for driving a bike smoothly on this condition. Please reply......
SamS on Dec 2, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Its not recommended to run a front tire as a rear the load capacities are different. The front tire may not be able to handle the weight of the rear. 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 888-339-3888. We are more than happy to help.

will this tire size 130/90/16 work well on a 1972 sporster?
Zack on Sep 6, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for writing into BikeBandit.com. For legal reasons BikeBandit.com does not offer mechanical/technical advice. We do offer repair manuals that may provide the info you need to help you solve your problem.
I have a '83'VT-500 ascot that will be used on back roads the stock tires that came with it are a 3.50S-18 front and a 4.25S-18 rear. I like what i am reading about the Pirelli sport demon tires but am not sure of the new sizing? I'm 5'10"x185lbs.and an ex. road racer from the 70s who still enjoys the twistys(:-)
null on Jun 20, 2012
BEST ANSWER: One inch = 25.4mm. 3.5 x 25.4 = 88.9, so use a 90mm width. Match the circumference of the old and new tires as closely as possible. You will probably need an aspect ratio of 90. That means you will probably need to buy a 90/90-18 tire for the front.
Same thing for the rear: 4.25 x 25.4 = 107.95, so use a 110mm width. Same as the front for circumference to determine the required aspect ratio. Therefor, you will probably need to buy a 110/90-18 for the rear.
I have these on my BMW, my riding style sounds similar to yours, and I love the Demons. The only bad part is the mileage: I've worn out the rear in about 5000 miles, but that's the price you pay for all that grip.
Good luck, have fun and ride safe. Hope this has helped.
I have a 1988 Kawasaki ninja 750 and I am looking for a good durable tire that has a good performance (cornering) and decent price. Would this be a good choice in tire? I am a casual rider who occasionally likes to take curvy roads with speed and agility accustom to a Kawasaki. She is a big bike and she carries a lot of speed that I would like the option to use safely.
kielbasa on May 14, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Yes this tire would be an excellent choice for your application.
will this fit a 87 cbr 600 hurricane?
null on Jan 26, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Yes this tire will work perfectly, you will need a size
110-170-17 for the front and 130-70-17 for the rear.
Am I correct to believe that you do not ship motorcycle tires to Canada
WillieP on Feb 14, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Unfortunately, we're unable to offer international shipping on tires. All tires must be shipped via Ground service, and all international orders are currently shipped via Air service. We apologize for any inconveniences.
Is this an acceptable tire for a Sportster 883? I want TRACTION! Could careless about OEM HD tire, I want the best... 6 ply is the OEM, good for me?
soitsjustme on Feb 7, 2010

I selected these for my 1995 K1100 LT.
The Perelli Sport Demons have me very impressed so far. Great tire on dry payment but it hasn't rained and caught me out - yet. My other answer won't be available for at least 5000 miles and I am hoping that I'm still grinning at 10k.

I put these on an R3 from the street pilots stock and the difference is night and Day , the tires look wider and more aggressive but the biggest difference is on the road , taking turns and leaning has improved greatly, it does inspire more confidence, at the moment of this review I just road through some light rain on a highway with heavy wind ... and they held pretty good !!!
