I'm used to getting 120/180 tires, so I know the Power Pures, the Dunlop Q2's...etc.

But they don't make those in the smaller 110/140 size. So, what is a good set of tires that fit the 300 that would make a good track tire, and street tire?

110's:
Diablo Rosso II
Battlax S20
Battlax BT-016
Battlax BT-003

140's:
Diablo Rosso II
Battlax BT-003

150's:
Diablo Rosso II
Battlax S20
Battlax BT-016
Battlax BT-003


I think those would probably be my best bet? Any particular one you like over the rest? And what is the best settings for these smaller bikes to run? 110 on the front? 120? As well as the rear.. 140 or 150?

It is recommended to run the same front and rear tire.

Running 2 different brands of tires isn't good. Each brand is made to be matched with tires from the same company.

Don't cheap out on tires, remember they are the only thing separating you from the road.

Can you mix and match? Yes

Is it ride-able? Yes

Commute? Yes...not too bad

Should you ride with it for a long period of time? Not really

Ride in the wet with mismatched tires? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! The sypes on the front and rear work together to evacuate water.

That was a copy-paste from another forum, just a bit of information in regards to running 2 different tires.

I have a set of Conti supermoto tires in 120/150 and they are great. I run them on my KTM EXC530 17" SM wheels too. They heat well in cold weather and stick great. I can do some sick stuff on the KTM and break them loose with super control.

Cheap too.

The 120/150 slows the steering a tick, but you adjust right away and it is still very light.

I think the only "Pilot Sports" around are Scooter tires.

You may be referring to the Pilot Powers, which they do sell the standard Pilot Power that can fit our bikes, however, their dual compound Pilot Power 2CT's will not.

cbzdel, you can delete this thread or lock it if you'd like, since we have the more informative thread now.
