Default Motorcycle Tire Information and Conversion Charts

Break-In Period

In order for your new tire to provide optimum performance, tires should be ridden very cautiously for the first 100 miles in order for the tread surface to be "Scuffed-In" and work properly. Directly after new tires are mounted, sudden acceleration, maximum braking and hard cornering must be avoided. This will allow the rider to adjust to the "feel" and handling characteristics of the new tire and for the new tire to be "scuffed-in" correctly in order to achieve optimum grip level.

Conversion Charts

Tires with 2.00, 2.25, & 2.50 nominal section widths are rated for 75 mph.

Remember, tire safety requires proper care and use.

WARNING: Only properly trained personnel should mount tires.
