need a rear supermoto tire 150/50/17

Discussion in 'Vancouver' started by TheSumoBear, Jul 30, 2012.


  1. I'll be doing some shopping around today but have a feeling I'm not going to find the contiforce sm I really want. So if anybody has something with any decent enough tread for one long ride on the cheap please message or text me. Numbers in profile.
     
  2. Found a set on CL for a hundred bucks. But the rear was a 160 that was trimmed to fit the guys bike. Says its about a 150 now. My gut says don't do it. But maybe I'm being over cautious on this and its fine? Need opinions pleeease.
     
  3. i have seen some people run a 160... with some chain rubbing on the tire
     
  4. I have too. But this was cut to fit witj a razor blade...
     
  5. Oh never mind. I just saw a pic of his hack job. Yikes.
     
  6. I run a 160 Michelin no rubbing issues
     
  7. Oh seriously? I thought for sure a 160 would rub.
     
  8. I just measured the clearance. I really don't believe a 160 would fit. According to my tape measure it would come out to the middle of the chain
     
  9. Re measured and I'm a dummy. It would fit. But I just read 160s don't fit quite the way that they are supposed to on a 4.5" rim

    I have a Power One 160 rear that I ran on my DRZ. I personally didn't care much for the profile on the DRZ, but it's cheap if you want to come pick it up.

    my drz currently has a pilot power 160 and it rubs but just slightly.
    not a fan of the profile either & have a 150 on order.
     
  13. 150/60 fits perfect on the DRZ ;)

    me tooo? maybe?

    i tried to install the vapor last night. speedo cable is a dick.
     
  20. Should be easy... the pick up should be mounted on the fork guard;) and swap a rotor bolt with the magnetic rotor bolt and there ya go (oh... make sure pick up is same height when rotor is near guard ;) ).. Easiest way to get your tire size is put a mark on the floor and a mark on the tire and go forward one full revolution make a mark, measure and convert to mm ;)
