Tyres are among the most important components of your motorcycle. The interface between you and the road, if they’re not in optimum condition then you’re not only risking your safety but potentially 3 points on your licence and a £60 fine.

The capability of modern motorcycle tyres is extraordinary, with tyre technology continuing to make enormous strides in recent years. The stock tyres available to road riders now offer levels of grip and control that even GP racers of the 80s and 90s could only have dreamt about.

However, the effectiveness of motorcycle tyres will diminish with wear and also deteriorate over time. A set of tyres that are over three years old should probably be replaced irrespective of visible tread wear.

Because tyres can go off gradually it’s easy to overlook the effect on your bike. But it is noticeable how new tyres can transform the handling of a motorcycle. So if your bike has lost some of its feel or developed other handling issues then ask us to check the condition of your current tyres – a new set of tyres might be all that’s needed.

Mileage and grip – new sport touring multi-compound tyres provide the best of both worlds

Before selecting replacement tyres for your bike consider the type of riding you do and what you want from your tyres – we can advise you on this and recommend suitable alternatives to OE fitment tyres for all types of motorcycles.

High performance sports tyres will wear out more quickly; that’s the trade-off you make for the extra levels of grip they provide. An alternative that’s well worth considering are the latest-generation sports touring tyres, now providing extended mileage capability combined with multi-compound formulations. These recent developments provide a versatile, everyday road tyre delivering grip levels and responsiveness which approaches that provided by dedicated sports tyres. Contact us to discuss the most suitable tyre options for your needs.

Vital to scrub-in new tyres

Remember to ride cautiously on a brand new set of tyres, allowing as much as 100 miles (not including wet riding) to fully scrub-in the surface of the new rubber before you begin to make any serious demands upon them.

Motorcycle Tyre Tips

Tyre pressures

Whilst some racers advocate lowering tyre pressures below standard for track riding this remains a controversial issue and certainly isn’t advisable for road use. The inflation pressure of a tyre is vital to its performance, and it’s essential for both safety and optimal handling that you regularly check your tyre pressures and maintain them at the recommended psi/bar for your bike. Too low and the tyre will deform and can overheat, reducing its effectiveness whilst increasing wear and fuel consumption. Similarly, over-inflation increases wear and reduces potential grip.

Warming tyres

The traction provided by motorcycle tyres improves dramatically with temperature. Bike tyres can take several miles to get up to temperature; you should never push the bike hard until the tyres have had an opportunity to warm properly. Warming is produced by road contact and particularly by the effect of braking forces. A common misconception is that weaving the bike from side to side will warm the tyres more quickly, although this actually has a negligible effect. Progressively warming the tyres is even more critical when track riding. Many track day ‘offs’ happen on early laps because too much has been asked of a cold tyre.
