Re: Michelin has a new tire to fit the rear of our bikes.
Written by sc00terdog on 3/15/2012 at 02:50 am

The size is 150/90-15. I have currently a Metzler 140/90-15 on my 98 PC and it
has worked well for me; I am on my third tire of this size. I would be tempted
to try the Metzler Commander II, but worry about clearance to the drive shaft. I
think the clearance would be less than 4 or 5 mm.

They claim the new tire compound lasts twice as long as the competition's tires,
and that the new rubber compound is better in dry or wet weather.
