I do more mileage on the rear than the front.

My front was brrrrrand new when I got the bike so possibly that's skewing things too. I do know I'll need another rear soon.

Continental TKC80 because science and experimentation.

I got 2,700 miles out of Bridgestone Gritty front. Worst I've had for wear but ok off-road.

AC10's last well but they are the worst tyres I ever fitted, horrible things that follow every wrinkle in the road. Feels like the swing-arm has collapsed. Never again.

So, I'm finally back from my holiday. St. Lucia is awesome, stopped at Le Sport.....would highly recommend it.

Anyway, finally fitted my rear tyre. There's just under an inch of room between the tyre and swingarm, front and sides.
Standard chain and sprockets fit with the adjuster one notch before number two.

The actual width of the tyre is 97mm, compared to the ac10 it looks really narrow but so much more rubber on the ground.


All in all, I'm happy....for now.
