Re: Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires
Ive researched this subject and it seems as popular and as whacky as a "whats the best Oil" thread. I guess everyone has their preferences, but I dont want to skimp on safety at all.
I didnt research this before going to the store to get a front tire installed. I had Bt-020 on the front , but it had bubbles on it. So I got the front tire changed today. Ive had the bike since Sept of 16. They had the Pilot 4 in stock and said it was ok for the bike. I asked about the rear and they said they have them in stock and when I was ready, they could put on a Pilot 4 back tire.
The back tire is still a Battleaxe tire.
I just chatted with Michelin and they tell me that they dont make a Pilot Road 4 for the LK. They also advised not to mix different model tires.
I rode the bike around the block , so far, and am afraid to ride it further as it may jeopardize what goes on tomorrow with this dealer and a safety factor.
I have to admit, it shook like crazy and you couldnt ride no handed at all with the bubbled tire, todays short jaunt, was true as an arrow with no hands ( for a brief moment).
What would you do in this situation? Would you just say go for a Pilot 4 and run with it, or should I go with a different Michein, they said that the Commander II and the Scorcher 31 are rated for the LT.
I know its alot, but Im lost as to what to do.
Any advice you offer would be greatly appreciated.
I reside in Indianapolis, so theres not a lot of twisty turns around this flat place.
