Should quicken steering up a bit over a 190/50/17 ,watch it if you have a hugger fitted as the tyre may be to high and rub , amazing deal

Here's the deal - http://www.mandp.co.uk/index.php/defaul ... tyres.html

After having a set of sportmax on the 9 I've found (and after speaking to others) that you have to wait for them to warm up - people have reviewed them saying on average 4-6 miles. The ones I have aren't the qualifiers however.

Cheap though!

I run a 190 rear wet on the track bike with no problems. They are a fair bit bigger overall as the tyre warmers barely reach all the way around!
(i use standard size 180's the rest of the time)

Got one (Pilot Power clearance sale)on mine, but along the lines of what Steve mentioned, it rubs a bit against the aftermarket undertray on my E model. Even with the shock height adjuster maxed out.

Not sure if it may also have something to do with the fact that the eccentric chain adjuster on the VFR swingarm causes the rear axle to change height in the swing arm. Does handle nice and light with it on. Or did before I flatspotted it when the rear wheel locked up at 80 mph...

What I found when I had a 190/55 is that the gearing gets a notable bit taller ("emergency" for a trip to Assen - went to Tyre shop said "have you got a part worn race tyre that will go in the back my bike", and that was what they came up with). So I would compensate with a tooth or two less on the rear sprocket (unless you already have a tooth less at the front).

sorry to resurrect an old thread, but my Qualifiers are due a change now, think I've done about 5k on them and have a new set of Qualifier 2's to go on =D>

haven't had one slide on these and they pucker up lovely, but like what has already been said, give them over 5 miles to get warmed up a bit. I would happily buy these again =D>
