My son has put about 300 miles on them so far and really likes them. They were installed by someone else so I can't rate that. They were a good deal.He likes the ride. Only rating them the way I am because haven't had them very long.

My 98 Suzuki Intruder 800 had the d404's on it after a lot of research I learned that the Pirelli MT66 Route are the best bang for the buck I busted my rear brake cable on my bike so my son changed bikes with me for the ride home I'm a new be rider and he thought it would be better for him to ride it home his bike is the same as mine just 4yrs older after riding my bike then his with the d404's on them(only 800 miles old) I really though his tires where flat and after riding my bike he bought the MT66's the NEXT DAY. GREAT TIRE my tire guy said there a little difficult to install due to the stiffness of the tire P.S I'm buying a 06 Suzuki boulevard tomorrow and it will get new tires unless they have Pirelli's already on it
I Bought my Honda Shadow AC3 750 with 7k miles and bad tires. I had these Pirelli MT66s put on and I now have 27k miles and the tires are just now beginning to show wear. I've got probably another 3k left in them. I will be buying these again every time I need tires for the rest of my life lol.
I've only put a couple of hundred miles on these tires since mounting, but so far the ride has been great. Had a shop install them and they were impressed with them, I can really tell the difference between these and the ones that came with the bike. Will be making Moto-Sports my go to place when I'm ready for my next set of tires,
this was my first motorcycle part purchase ever off the internet. the tires are great so comfortable and smooth, excellent traction on wet to dry to wet roads. motosport.com processed and shipped so fast I had my tires before I was supposed to get them. I have created an account with motosport and plan on using them for many, many, many, of my purchases from here on out.
thank you motosport for really making a nerve racking purchase, an ease.
Put them on a 1100 Vstar @ 16,584 miles now at 27,624 miles and getting ready to replace( rear only as front is still less than 50% worn) in a few months as not worn out yet. I am very happy to get this much mileage from a tire. OEM Dunlops only lasted 4500 miles.
Love these tires, way better then the stock Bridgestone's. they handle the twisties great, good in rain, and what a smooth ride
Tires delivered fast and as described. My mechanic had no trouble balancing, and said I made a good choice of tires.
These tires are sooooo smooth on road like floating on cloud. Second they grip the road very well making it easy to move around on road without even a doubt of slipping. third they are very durable and are not cheap made dont think twice about missing out on these. =D
Just got these tires mounted. Only rode 100 miles, what a much better ride. Bike handles so much better. they grip the road a lot better then Dunlop I had on.
purchased these tires to replace the old cracked ones on an 05 honda rebel. took them down to the shop and had them installed and no problems so far. considering the low speed of a rebel these hold up rather well. i dont ride in the rain so not sure how they hold up then but otherwise i think these are good for this type of bike.
These are the best tires I 've bought in a long time . Last set were Bridgestones Battlax they had a habit of looseing grip on turns could feel front end hopping sideways. These Pirellis grip the road cold or hot. I have a 1988 Kawasaki 250 Eliminator and it has never handled like it does now. Note you have to remove the front fender and take a round file and oblong the fender mounting holes to raise the fender. This will have to be done with any tire, the size that came with the bike isn't made any more. The front tire you need a tube although the rim is tubeless.
I needed tires and had been looking since the end of riding season 2011. The prices I were seeing held me off. When riding season came, I thought I had to bite the bullet. Until I found Motosport.com. There I found Pierili's as a set for over half the price I saw at the local motorcycle dealerships in Houston, TX. And the tires arrived in a few days.
From this point on, I go to Motorsport.com to search for products 1st.
Great tires, hold road good, don't follow rain groves or tar snakes, so far about 800 miles including rain and they worked great in the rain too. looks like they should out last the bridgestones or dunlops. Had them installed but the guy said they where easy and appriciated the cardboard that was in them to keep the beads spread apart. Right price + Great tire = will buy again. P.S 2up riding 50% of time and aired to tire spec not what is on bike fram big diffrence. Great Customer Service
I was skeptical considering the traditional shape of the Dunlops for my Harley, I contacted Pirelli to see if these are compatible for Harley's because most reviews claim that these tires are for the lighter metric cruisers; but that is not the case, they can be used for Harleys and other heavy bikes. I put these on my super-glide and they are great. These tires are very responsive, low wear with about 900 miles being 2-up(I have ridden approximately 2200 miles on them), these tires do not follow the cuts in the road and aren't bad on grated roads either which was surprising. These tires kick out dust and small pebbles and hold great in the rain and higher temperatures. The only thing I can say is be careful with the cross-walk paint when turning, you will slide a little, but I found that to be normal and still better than the Dunlops suggested by Harley. I gave this tire 5 stars all around excluding ease of installation because I did not install them myself. The mechanic said they werent too hard to work with and he liked the look of the tire too. I even got a call asking how I liked how the tires were working for me and I told him basically this review. Pirelli's have done me well and the Motosport crew had these tires to me within three days. Very glad to have these on my bike and I will buy them again. I could not find a better deal than this website. I have bought tires for one of my past bikesfrom this website and regardless of the make/model, this is the best priced site I could find. I searched for two months getting information on the Pirelli's and still couldn't find a better deal. Do some research and read as many reviews as possible and see for your self.
These tires are great they handle well ride smooth.
Simple set of tires that are reliable in all types of weather.
got these tires for my vt1100 shadow and the ride great. got this cruiser with old bald dryrotted tires and it is the firs cruiser i have ever ridden, but still a great buy and i cant find a thing wrong with these pirelli's. get them
This combo is an excellent value and saved me a ton of cash over previous purchases of these tires. I have used Pirelli MT66 on first bike and now on my bigger cruiser! Superior ride, handling, and durability made this my top choice to replace the factory rubber when time came. I will continue to use Pirelli!
Ordered online with a gift card. I was called by a representitve to conferm the credit card use.I appreciated this due to previouse credit card fraud experiance. The rep was very nice and helpful. They shipped the tires and were recieved on time. Installed the tires on my C90 and went for a ride great tires Awsome company. Thanks.
