New tyres for the Multi - Z8s?

Postby duke63 » 20 Apr 2017, 21:00

Will be looking to replace these before the France trip next month.

Anyone experience of the Metzeler Z8s?

They seem silly cheap at the moment and were the top rated tyre in their class just a couple of years ago.

I had them on the Z1000SX when we did France. They really suited the bike. I'm going back to them after the 01s

Decent mileage as well as being sportier than the other touring tyres out there. I think I got about 8,000 from mine.

They have stopped making them now so just be aware of the age of the tyre when you buy them. They are awesome tyres I've done trackdays on them on my SV650 as well as euro tours and they are great in the wet too
