Time for new tires, I was looking for Bridgestone BT-020's but the local shop said they are discontinued, I looked at Bridgestone's site, and didn't see any tire listed for the LT, am I missing something?? Or is Bridgestone not an option anymore??

The Bridgestone fitment guide:

Bridgestone Motorcycle & Kart Tires

I noted that the guide does not list the K12000LT models from 99-04.
These model years had a Bridgestone radial tire listed as proper fitment. I understand that Bridgestone radial is no longer available (unless you were to find some old stock).

My Cut n Paste from the fitment guide shows the bias ply tire for the 05-09 K1200LT. Many of us use the bias ply on the earlier bikes.

K1200LT/ABS (bias-ply) 05-10 O.E. 120/70B17 160/70B17 120/70B17 Battlax BT020 "M" 160/70B17 Battlax BT020 "M"

For K1200LT tires I recently found that e-TiresUnlimited.com
Still Carries Bridgestones BT20 & Avon Storm 2's

While their prices to me seem the same as a couple of years ago, at least there still is options. As the new Avon's are not receiving too many awards for longevity....
