Yes mate so DK told me
you get what you pay for
i wouldnt risk grip issues with cheap tyres on such a powerful machine, you can always make and save money but you only live once, personaly i swear by bridgestone 016s or 021s for touring" />
I dont think you can say that. Sometimes you do get what you pay for but other tims your paying for the adverts of the bigger brands. I know its quite abit different but look what happend when thay banned smoking advertising at F1?!? Its nearly fucked the event up! also dont you think that all the "BIG" brands started off "Small"??
I bought Maxxis Supermaxx twice for my Fazer 600. Before that I had Bridgestone, and before that Dunlop.
I thought grip levels between the Maxxis and Bridgestone were the same. I only got around 3000 miles from a Maxxis rear tyre though, and that was riding through winter on mostly wet roads. With a Bridgestone sport touring I get around 5000.
On something like a Busa, I don't think it would take long to square the tyres off with the Maxxis from my experience.
i ride maxxis tyres on my 600 bandit and they provide a nice grip but dont last long if u ride aggressive....i wont get the rear again....all personal preference though innit
As others have said they may be cheap but they don't last all that well. You'll probably end up getting a false economy.
Get a decent pair of hyper-sports tyres to take you through the summer, then maybe put on some sports-touring tyres for the winter.
As a 'Busa owner you should know you have the wrong bike for keeping consumable costs down!
Been riding for 26+ years on all types of bikes. Done commuting, Sunday Grand Prix riding, long distance tours and track days.
I was always a Bridgestone person due to their cost/grip level and I think that I would have carried on... if I hadn't tried Maxxis.
Here's the thing... I work for Maxxis UK! Yes, I know, you think I'm biased. Well, no. If they were no good I wouldn't use them as tyres are as much a safety thing as anything. I ride a modified '05 Speed Triple and I ride hard (got to, to keep up with my mates on ZX-10Rs!) and, in all weathers, they grip well and warm-up quickly. I'm on my 3rd rear (still the first front) Supermaxx Sport and I will keep on buying them - even if I stop working for the company.
The afore mentioned ZX-10R pilots also use Supermaxx Sports, so they can't be that bad!
At the end of the day, there are several factors to consider: price, longevity and grip. You can only see one of these (price) before you buy. The others are anecdotal (mates or forums) or from your own experience of using them. If they are the best you can afford, get them. Virtually every review that I have seen in magazines rates them very highly.
I could go on... but then you'd say its because I work for the company!
Maxxis sponsored the TT last year and all of the travelling marshals' bikes had them.
Had a pair fitted this morning to my Speed Triple.
1st impressions, a great improvement on the Bridgestones fitted before.
And 100 miles in the pouring rain, the bike felt very sure footed.
maxxis vrs more expensive tyres
on my first pair of maxxis tyres, and really pleased so far. .excellant for fast road use, done a track day this week and was impressed how good they were. only thing i could say is that they started to move around a bit if pushed hard continuosly albeit very predictable.
not worried about milage as you get a pair of these for the price of a rear 016, its a no brainer - simples
maxxis v the world
just done a 2nd trackday on these tyres , was a bit damp at first and had a few slides, but as soon as i could see a dry line forming ,the guys on wets were left standing.
still rate these tyres as probally the best fast road tyre for the money. but for the track balls out performace,i think racetecs would be a better choice.
maxxis no more 4 now
dunlop gp211 now my most favourite road/track tyre,but still rate those maxxis
Hi-the sport touring tyres have little tread to start & the 'sport' have delaminated/started cracking at joint on my 60hp Versys!! Get some Pirelli's! or whatever - you get what you pay for.......
Hi-if you ride real slow,they will be OK-otherwise stump up the extra £40 or so for some 'known' tyres-think about it......you may save £30>50 but what if ya slide it down the road...????? you get what ya pay for. I have tried both maxxis sport/tour & sport & will never buy again.....
Again its horses for courses, But please do not just listen to the tyre snobs. I have been using Maxxis tyres for the last 4 years, I have two Dedicated Track day bikes and use Maxxis supersports on them with great success. In fact I know of two Superbike Schools who use them on there own bikes. ( Chris Walker being one of them, Cannot ask for a better endorsement than that. I also use them on my road bike ( Kawasaki z1000 ) And I cannot fault them at all.
But if you have money to burn then buy a big BRAND name, just for the Name.
Hi-if you ride real slow,they will be OK...
As will the original tires on a CB750F that has been sitting in a barn the last 35 years - just have to define "real slow" appropriately.
Huh...... There are ..."Tyre Snobs" now............. whatever next.........?
