Nearest to stock rocks
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?

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.
