    Ok better pic. You can see bike is almost on edge of tyre just leaning on the stand, couple degrees more and its on the edge. Any attempt to get the pegs down Im going to be on my arse !



    Any idea why or is it just a bad size for this bike?

    I believe it's the size. Going from a 180 to a 190 on my Hornet had a similar effect.

    What size is that tyre? If it's not a 140 or a 150 it's too wide for the rim and will handle terribly, wear unevenly and possibly pop off the rim if you get a puncture and dont notice in time.
    Don't think the make the PR3 is appropriate sizes for the 250. Not to mention they are a touring tyre anyway.

    The 150/70-17 is within the specs of how wide a tyre you can fit on that rim but is not the best choice of tyre for that bike at all. If you're going to use a 150 the correct height is a 150/60. The 150/70-17 is a heavier construction and taller profile designed for something like a bmw dual sport/tourer. Running the taller tyre will make the bije handle.oddly as more weight is shifted to the front tyre affecting tip in and braking. It's not exactly dangerous to run it, but far from optimal.

    Offering a dual compound rear these tyres are durable enough to put up with constant long commutes without squaring off too rapidly, but with a softer shoulder that has no problems providing laps of knee down fun at the track.

    Got myself a set of Bridgestone BT-003 RS and i must say, they're pretty good for commuting considering they're performance orientated. Have yet to test them on twisty roads

    I just got a set of Bridgestone s20 evo's in stock sizing. After scrubbing off the release compound, I am in love. they are supposed to be multi compound, and the front tyre stiffer for feedback (the feedback is a little unnerving at first). even if they only last $3000km, I will get another set. they stick like glue, are eager to tip in and in the wet they inspire so much confidence. comparing them to battlax Bt045, Arrowstax and Pirelli sports demons (my second choice, lasted about 8000km, rode nicely when new, squared off on the shoulder quickly).
