Owners Lounge / VF1000F Tires/tyres
« on: January 03, 2015, 03:21:04 pm »
I need to order tires for my recently acquired VF1000F.

When I had my previous one (sold over 10 years ago) I ran (and liked) Metzler ME33 fronts and ME55 rears.

It looks like the Metzler LaserTec Bias Sport Touring tires are the replacements for them.

Still a good choice, or recommendation for alternative brand/model?

I'm most interested in dry grip, secondarily wet grip, and not too concerned about wear.

tia,
Walter

I picked up my 2nd VF1000F in September- I'd put 50,000 miles on my first one before selling it quite a while ago, and was starting to miss it.

Found this one in Albany NY-  rough cosmetically, slight tank leak, and terrible starter noise (yeah, broken starter clutch lol), but seemed to run fine and the suspension held pressure. So.....


Not as nice as the pics make it seem, and if you look carefully you can see evident wear and mismatches.









Just did the rebuild/powdercoat of a whole bunch of stuff (forks, all masters & slaves, calipers, brackets, handlebars, etc.). Wish I'd done some "before" pics because the "after" came out very well. After that goes back together there's more to do (as always  ;D)

I keep going back and forth on how far to take things- I'm still in the sympathetic restoration stage, but I guess if I take care of the bodywork it will be more than that.


Take a look at the "after pics




The guy who did this work did a spectacular job, and I'd like to give him a shout out if that's permitted on the forum
