Which tyres will turn my FZ1 into a tourer?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

I have a 2008 Yamaha FZ1 and the rear tyre needs re­plac­ing. I am do­ing a ride around Europe soon and will cover around 3000 miles. What’s the best rub­ber for the job? Gra­ham, Slough

An­swered by Bryn Phillips, Cam­brian Tyres This may sound like a sim­ple an­swer, but the best tyre to fit is the match­ing tyre to your ex­ist­ing front. By do­ing that (and as­sum­ing it has been tested and ap­proved for fit­ment by the tyre man­u­fac­turer) you will en­sure op­ti­mum sta­bil­ity and han­dling whilst on your trip. Fit a dif­fer­ent type or make of tyre and these per­for­mance cri­te­ria could suf­fer.

Match your rear to the front tyre
