Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

I just got my set of PR3s today...



I should have my re-painted left side plastics back by Friday, so should just about ready for our big annual bike trip on June 19th: close to 3 weeks on the road... WOO HOO!

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

Being a loyal Michelin user through PR2 and PR3, new contender on the block is the Pirelli Angel GT (not the ST). Apparently independent German testing has placed the GT at the top of the heap in terms of overall mileage/wet/dry response putting the PR3 down to 6th now. If I had to buy new today I would try these replacing my PR3's. However I bet a PR4 refresh is on tap for late 2013/2014 to compete with the new compounds of the GT and some of the other newer sport touring tires.

Having seen first-hand how well the Pirelli Rallycross/M21s perform and last on my DRZ400E, I think I'd be up for giving the Angel GTs a shot... after I burn up these brand-new PR3s, of course. ;-)

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

Its been about 4 months since I bought my 30th anniversary K1300S. My rear tire is almost at the wear nub on my original Metzler M3. Front tire is right behind it. Im very pleased that I got over 7500 commuting miles out of them. After researching Ive decided to try the Pirelli Angel GTs. I cant wait to see how many miles I can get outta these.

So you're out of the K1300S club now? Read your 'for sale' ad that you just bought the bike for that trip . Hopefully you reconsidered . Good luck whatever you do man .

As far as the Pirelli GTs being 'first', I'll wait for objective reviews from owners here . Can't imagine anything being better than my current PR3s, but I'm always welcome to surprises.

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

Update for the masses. So I just changed my tires this past week. I had the Michelin PR2 which my 2009 BMW K1300s came with. The dealership told me they has about 400 mile on them. I put another 9000 miles on the PR2. The mechanic said I had another 500-1000 miles left. They were not down to the wear lines.
I bought the Michelin PR$s. I have about 60 miles on them.

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

I have been riding approx 100 000km om K12/13S.
I would say Metz Z8I O/M and Michelin PR4 are the best on for this bikes.
Angel GT wear out to quikly at the front.
I prefer Pilot Road 4.

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

I've been running Pilot Power 3's on my K13, and I think I'm ready to try a harder wearing tire. I don't get more than about 8,000 miles on these. I've seen the PR3's cup a lot on heavier bikes like the RT so I'm a little worried that might happen to me as well. Although, I am pretty anal about checking my tire pressure. So maybe there won't be any issues.

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

An update on the PR4's. I'm going to say they are the best all around tire I have had to date. In the canyons, they stick very well. That surprised me based on the sport touring classification. I have ridden them in the rain. True to the marketing, they are solid in the rain. I have about 4K miles on them and they look new. I have done a few longer rides with them and they do inspire a great deal of confidence. I good portion of the miles has been two up.

I'm finding on the longer trips, I generally get 49-50 mpg, even during 2 up riding. Overall, I have had a great experience with the PR, PR2, and PR4's.

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

Put the Pirelli Angels's on my K 1300s before I went to the AHR. 800 miles of slabbing and 600 or so miles of twistys. No issues whatsoever. no chicken strips either as they give great traction. Anxious to see how they wear in the ong run and how many miles I get out of a set.

I gave both the PR3 and 4 a try - 2 sets of each - and found that these were the ONLY tires that I actually wore the front out ahead of the rear. They are a fantastic choice if you regularly encounter rain in your riding, as the siping does move a lot of water off the footprint. But I think that same siping weakens the front tread blocks and the tires prematurely cup on the shoulders.

I never got more that 5k miles out of the rear, and found that the way the rubber feathered off as they aged eroded my confidence somewhat in the last 1k miles of the tire - so no bargain there.

My favorites? Dunlop Q3 or Pilot Power 3 if in the rainy season... I get 4-5k out of either and they're good all the way to the end... I have over 200k miles between 2 '05 K12Ss and a K13S. (I've bought LOTS of tires)

My $.02...

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

PR4 or 3 are a near perfect sport touring tyre. Had a few sets and normally get between 15-20k out of a set. Yes the front does cup a bit, but so does the back and does not seem to effect the handling too much. These tyres are brilliant in the rain and have never let me down. I have repaired a couple of flats on the side of the road and the tyres held together to get me to a shop. I tried that with a Pirelli and the tyre tore apart.

Depends how fresh they are, since it might take me over a year to use them (arms injured). What's the DOT code on yours (front and rear)? They're 4 numbers, denoting week and year of manufacture. Thanks man.
SWMototires now redirects to discountmotires.com Has anyone purchased from them? Same company? Any problems? Buying the set of P3s. Are P4s noticeably better? Thanks for any advice for a new K1300 owner!

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

Stuff comes, is really hot for a while, then it loses the bubble and something else replaces it. I used to buy ALL my tiers from SW Moto, but now I buy 'em from American Motorcycle Tire, http://www.americanmototire.com/catalog/index.php

Some of the Fools are saying there is something better out there, and maybe they're right, I dunno. But these guys have the tires I want, when I need 'em, at a decent price.

As always, YMMV.

the article reads like "info-tisement" to me. Is anyone familiar with the sources as independent, or were they paid by Pirelli for the PR? Not saying, other than it happens... Shopping now, so it matters to me...

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

I got PR3's on my bike mistakenly when I bought them 2 years and 7500 miles ago - I meant to get the dealer to fit Pilot Power. I can hardly tell they are worn. I have hammered them as much as any of the Metzelers M1/3/5's I have had before. The only difference would be that I would have used 2 full sets of the Metzelers by now. I honestly cannot tell the difference other than to say no squaring off. They are fantastic tyres. As an aside I feel even better about it as the admin of another ex-K site (who shall not be named) actually said that the were not a true sports tyre because of the way they looked. Weird comment.

The tyres are the best sports or sports touring I have found so far over 7 different K-bikes, 5 of which have been recent gen K12 or K13. You can't go wrong with them in my view and I will buy the PR4's when I next need a set.

Cheers...

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

I was a huge fan of PR3, shame they are no longer available
I was disappointed with PR4 due to the way they wear, making for a very uncomfortable ride...wouldn't buy them again - I now use Avon Storm 3D X-M

Yes, il agree, the front PR4's "cupping" is rather bad, so il try the GT-version next time, and if that doesnt help, il go for the Metzeler Z8 O/M witch won the last tyretest in Motorrad.

Don't bother, I had the GT version and the cupping was awful hence why I'm staying away from these tyres

You guys need to try the Pirelli Angel GT's, or even the older Angel ST's, once you have ridden on these its all you will put on your bike!

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

Just got back from Mount Vernon Cannon Works, where I got a fresh set of Metzeler M7RRs installed on OXCART, my K1300S. The tires are still new. The roads are wet. I like them!

Guess I'm kinda hard on tires. OXCART's last set of tires, Metzeler M5s, were mounted on 7/28/15, right after getting back from the BMWMOA National. These tires have just been used for local riding, a small run from Pugetropolis to SGR and back, and some miscellaneous runs over Hwy 20, etc. A mere 3,871 miles. Maybe it was that little speed run from Burns to Lakeview on a nice September afternoon. Or was it the one on the way into Gerlach, NV?

But I digress. I think that those M7RRs were f**kin' MADE for my K1300S. They positively squeaked on the concrete floor of Beecher's garage, like they were trying to peel up the concrete, on the way out.

We'll find out how they work in a Seattle winter.

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

I put a set of Z8's on about a month ago. Only done 800 miles or so so a bit early to tell, but so far they've been a noticeable improvement over the M3's that they replaced. Excellent grip in the dry and wet.

Did u choose the O/M-variant?

Yes indeed. M on the front, O on the rear.

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

I see there's a new Metzler Roadtec 01 out in January offering better mileage and better wet grip allegedly - interesting to see if anyone choses to give that a whirl.

Put on a set of Angel GT's in the Spec A weight. Big mistake. They handle well but they are the most uncomfortable stiff ass tire. I might yank them off and try a set of standard weight GT's. The Spec A is to stiff.

Hey Dean, the heavy spec in any of the tyres (PR4GT, T30, AngelGT,etc) is too much for these K1300's. It's like being in ESA sport mode all the time. Glad someone else has noticed.
Don't give up on the Angel GTs in the standards spec, they are a great tyre and give a smooth ride.

I'm having a hard time deciding whether to go with the 01's or Angel GTs as a replacement for the Spec A's. I can't keep the Spec A's on until they wear out because my back can't take the punishment.

The Angels are more "pointy" in the middle, and will tip into a corner quicker than the Roadtec 01's. I have a Roadtec 01 on the front ATM, it feels a little softer than the Angel front tyre, but that may be the tread pattern on the Roadtec that gives that impression.
Mate they both seem to be good tyres, not much word on how the roadtecs feel towards the end and how they last yet, I would say go with the Angel GT's. If it comes down to price either one.

My only concern with the 01's is the tread pattern on the front tire looks like it could develop cupping after it's worn for a while. That might not be the case but it just looks like they could. The Dunlop Roadsmart 3 looks like the tire with the best tread design but they're not available in the US and no arrival date. The Angel GT may be the safe play since I like the handling but hate the ride. The spec A's have to go and soon. It's to bad because they're just broken in and have no miles on them but sometimes learning something comes at a price. Thanks Kiwimat for the advise. It's very helpful.

I had the same thoughts about the Roadtec cupping on the front, I havnt done enough KM's yet. The PR4 on the back is cupping at 5,000km, be glad to get that tyre off when it's toast. Then im going back to Angel GT's.

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

Obviously cupping could be the tires, or the way they react to your riding or the bike itself. But, cupping can also come from suspension setup or an incorrect suspension setup and the way the bike is transferring weight, in particular while braking. google it, some good pics and examples or what to check for different types of tire cupping.

Some types of tread design seem to lead to cupping easier than others. I owned a Goodyear Store for 10 years, so I went to their training for it and have looked at more tires than I really want to. The tread pattern on the Metzeler Roadtec 01 looks to me like a tire that could see cupping after it's worn a ways. They may not. and as you stated there are a lot of other factors. but just looking at the Angel GT pattern, it looks like a design that would be less prone to cupping. To me the Dunlop Roadsmart 3 looks like a really good tread pattern. I'd sure like to hear from someone here who tried those even if they're not available here.

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

I just removed a set of Roadsmart 2's and popped on Angel GTs this last weekend. The 2's are decent all around tire, IMO not fantastic or bad at really anything, good turn in, even wear, but did not seem as grippy as my prior staple the Conti Road Attacks. I have not tried the 3's nor will I unless I hear some wonderful news about them.

They say there is a massive difference between the Roadsmart 2 and 3.

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

I've recently put Metzler M7 RRs on my 2009 K1300S & they are superb, they have the same handling & comfort characteristics as the M5s (I've had 3 sets of those) but the rear is dual compound (unlike the M5s) & after 1000 miles shows no perceptible wear, love em.

I think those are the ones that are exactly the same makeup as the Angel GT's, just with a more wet weather friendly tread pattern.

The Angel GT's are excellent in the wet, as good as any tyre I have ridden on, despite the "appearance" of the tread pattern.

Personally, I stay out of the rain and it almost never rains here, but when I look at a tread pattern, it's about what I envision as a possible cupping tendency as it wears down. The Angel GT looks like something that won't cup. The Roadsmart 3 looks like that too. I'm riding with a friend to Escondido BMW Motorcycles to get his K13S the bulletin upgrade on the starter cable that I got a while back. I'm going to see what they have been hearing lately on tires and then make a decision and order some replacements. Most likely another set of Angel GT in the standard weight.

I take that back. I don't know shit about the M7's. After sleeping on it, it's the Z8 that's the same as the Angel GT just designed for wet weather.

@TheKiwi I have no doubt, the compound lends itself well for wet weather. I'm just going by a professional review I watched or read somewhere. Basically it said Z8 has a deeper and closer to center rain channel than the Angel GT and they are the same compounds. But, the Angel GT had a little better dry grip and longevity with its tread pattern. They only recommend the Z8 over the GT if you expected to be riding in the wet often and at a sporty pace.

Personally I don't ride when I "expect rain" we have enough dipshit drivers in California, that rain and dipshit's would put me into road rage overload. But it's nice to know for the multi-day trips where you sometimes can't help the weather that they perform well.

Re: Best sport-touring tire for the K1300S.

After going to BMW today to get Bill's bike rewired on the starter I saw some tires I really liked. Michelin Pilot Power 3 on a sport bike there. This is the best looking tire I've seen so far. The dealer said they thought they would not last long because they were a sport bike tire. Has anyone tried these out and what was the outcome?

They should work fine, but your mileage will be horrible. I don't recall the tires, but this was back in 2009; my first tire change on my k1200s and I took the "S" a little too literal and bought a set of pure sport tires. I don't recall for sure, but I think I got something on the order of 1,800 miles out of them. It was then that I fully realized the bike should be called "tubby, the K1200ST"

I got close to 8,750 miles on the rear Pilot Power 3 that I just replaced. Rode it moderately hard on the street, never on the track. The PP3 is a dual compound tire so in reality it wears pretty well for having some sport capability. I replaced it with a Pilot Road 4 because that was all the shop had and I was 130 miles from home and the cords were showing on the PP3. I expect to get a few more miles out of the PR4.

Quite possible, as Pirelli own Metzler.

I like the A spec front....more even wear compared with the rear & didnt scallop as quickly as the standard GT
My K is jacked up at the rear (Beacher rise plates) and I push the front a bit too....these bikes are smooth anyway after Aprilia's, GSXR's etc.......so all relative

Too bad you're so far away. I'd love to sell you mine. I just ordered a standard weight one to replace it. It's a rock not a tire to me. I'm leaving the rear alone for now. By the time I wear them all out there may be something new again. The D. Roadsmart 3 might be here by then.

The first set I put on my KS was I think Michelin Pilot Power 2's, maybe 3's but I think 2's. I REALLY liked those. After that I got talked into the pilot roads, not sure if I did a set of PR3's, but I'm on I think my fifth set of PR4's now maybe one of them the 3's.

The pilot powers were awesome. But I do ride in the rain some and back then I did a lot more, so I went with the PR's instead of the PP's. I really like the Pilot Roads, kind of obviously since I'm going on so many sets in a row

Michelin just seems like such great tires, I may be keeping them in business, also got their snow tires on my AWD car and also their performance tires on my C5.
