Near­est to stock rocks

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - On the Bench -

Q: What’s a good rec­om­men­da­tion for tyres for the Kawasaki KR-1S? The stan­dard rear tyre size is 130/60-18 and the front is a 110/70-17. Bridge­stone do a BT50 or BT54 rear, and some­one sug­gested a BT45 front, but I’m not sure if the BT50 is a ra­dial. Any­one got any ideas?

Mark John­son, PS Face­book Group

A: Paul Fair­clough says: The BT45 is a crossply. I’d sug­gest a sticky BT090 front and a BT50 rear. Both are ra­di­als The near­est size to stock of the BT50 is 140/60 which will be fine. Mail or­der price for these is £95 rear and £76 front.
