Metzeler ME880 front tyre

I've just tried to place an order for a new front tyre at a bike shop here in Tassie and the Metzeler rep told the guy he can't give an ETA for any ME880 front tyres. Does anyone on the mainland know of an outlet with the correct tyre (below) in stock, and approximate price please.

Re: Metzeler ME880 front tyre

I'll be doing some shopping around next week to find a new front Metz probably be trying Phill Ward's favourite shop Motohansa, MCAS and my local Procycles.

Try www.motorcycle-superstore.com I don't know if they ship outside of the United States though.

Re: Metzeler ME880 front tyre

Thanks, I'll have a look. Seems a bit insane though, I don't know what's going on with supply of these tyres to Tassie, I would assume the rep would (possibly) cover Vic and Tas.

Re: Metzeler ME880 front tyre

The 880s went out of stock for a few weeks here last fall. Seems like they are staying busy at the plant.

I have one extra new front ME880 tyre that I can probably ship it to you from work if they can't ship it to you. Just make sure they can ship me a replacement within the next month.

Re: Metzeler ME880 front tyre

Yes, I just got a reply from a bike shop who spoke directly to the Metzeler rep, he stated that a container is on the way to Oz, but he said it was not known what/how many are in it, which would be crap as there must be a consignment note for any container. Not real good, but I want to match the tyres as the rear is only 2 months old. Hoping to get back to me late next week.

Re: Metzeler ME880 front tyre

I currrently have a front ME880 coming over from Southbank BMW Melbourne, I think they only had 2 in stock with no others on the horizon at present.Apparently the next Metzeler shipment to Oz is all radials with no tyres for the K12's, bugger. Thanks everyone for your input and offers of help. Dennis
