Tyres for Fazer 600

Post by fifthwheel » Thu Mar 05, 2020 6:58 pm

Hi all, I know riders have their favorites when it comes to tyres, what tyres should I be looking at for my 2003 Fazer.
The front is over 75% good and from 2018. The rear is knackered.
Can I just fit the one or should I fit a matching pair?

Ideally a matching pair as mismatched tyres can have different profiles and cause handling issues

What tyres are on it?

I would say Mitchlin PR 4 or 5 never let me down on FZ6.

You should use same brand but I have given up trying I just convert to Mitchlin.

We're going back nearly 20 years since I had my original Fazers........and I always used BT020's.

They're long gone I expect!

Running Bridgestone battlax bt 023f at the moment. Should I leave the front and buy a rear of the same type and spec, I have checked, they are still available?

It's entirely up to you if you're happy with the tyres then stick with them if not then change them as a pair!

I also recommend michelin pilot road 4
