Title says it all I think.
I'm looking for some Bridgestone Battlax bt-003's.
the stock tyres scare the absolute shit out of me and I seriously have lost all faith in them since my low speed slide.
So do you order them in through the dealership or a bridgestone service centre or is there an aussie online store that sends tyres?
thanks

I ordered my pilot road 3 from the dealer and it was to be installed at the next maintenance. the stock tires do the job in the wet and dry, not saying they grip better than others but for stock they are pretty good. dont know how you manage to do a low speed slide.

Went over some gravel while cornering, not fun.
When I corner now I feel like my rear wheel is going to slip from underneath me.
thank you by the way!

stuff the dealer they want to friggin much in this neck of the woods.
we have a specialized motorcycle tyre shop and that’s all they deal with and can be pretty good on prices too, but they are hidden in a side street and if you didn’t know they were there, you would never know about it

stuff the dealer
My thought exactly but if its my only option I guess I have no choice.
would an average bidgestone store be able to order some in for me? I have a mate who's a top dog for bridgestone so maybe he can hook me up.
haven't spoken to him in a while so maybe not.

Local motorbike shop is where I go. They have pretty much have all the tires one would look for. .

They also do things like maintenence and race prep.

Not too sure if we have any shops like these, just dealerships I think.

Nathan, try this online shop. It's where I usually get my stuff. Any orders over $90 comes with free shipping. You may want to ring them and ask about what is in stock first. Also check a few other online shops. You will, however, still need to get it fitted yourself. Try the bike shop you bought your bike from or ring a few others for a better price.

If you plan on bringing your bike to Perth, there are several places. Maybe ring them up and see how much they will charge for freight if you only want the tyres.

Also, remember, regardless of tyres, as soon as you hit gravel, you're pretty much dust, so try and stay on the black stuff...

Cheers...
