Motosport was great

I bought some Metzeler tires for my Kawasaki 900. Motosports website was easy to navigate and find what I needed.
I was very pleased.
I got a very good deal on tires, Free shipping,They arrived exactly the day Motorsport said. Oh, and I received a nice wall calendar too!
(Now my brothers are ordering their tires from you also)
Thank you

Unusually fast wear.

Less than 1000 miles in the tire and it is barely legal in terms of tread depth. Does not appear to be a good buy. My ride is a Honda 750 Shadow Spirit driven rather normally for short trips and limited roundtown use.

Me88o marathon

I put these on my BMW R1100S. Prior to using these I was experiencing very uneven wear on dual compound tires from another manufacturer. So I wanted to stay away from dual compound. Although these tires are recommended for heavy touring models I chose these for my boxer cup replica since it is a pretty heavy bike. I love them! Cornering and swooping turns are very smooth and grippy. There's a smooth roll when you transition to the sidewall and back up straight again. I highly recommend them, and dealing with Motosport was a pleasure.

Riding is fun again

These 880's are the best decision I made , my 09 Shadow 750 had factory Dunlops and tar snakes and highway cracks and grooves would grab the Dunlops and I never knew if I was going to get out of the wild ride or not. Now I have a much more controllable ride along with comfort.
Thank You MotoSport

Better than local dealer prices

I saved hundreds on these tires at Motosport compared to my local dealer. If you have someone who will mount tires for a reasonable price you can save big by bringing them your wheels and a pair of these.

Excellent choice!

These new Metzelers look great! So far the handle better than any other tires used before. I can't wait to try them on the canyon roads.

Q: Tubes, or not?
1 year 7 months ago
I have a 2006 Honda Shadow Aero 750 with spoked rims. Will I need tubed tires? I've seen the Metzeler ME880s in both TL and TT. I'm away from home or I would have just checked the current tire. Thanks

A: The Simple Answer is No, you do not need Tubed Tires for it.

I Own the same Bike and am looking at the Metzler 880's for it. figure cant go wrong with the great traction Metz's give.

Q: Tire Fit
2 years 3 months ago
I have a 2003 Triumph Speedmaster with a 170/80-15 rear tire. Will the Metzeler ME880 Marathon 180/70-15HB 76H fit? Is it wider, taller?

A: The 180/70-15 would be wider and shorter (lower profile) than the 170/80-15.

Q: What size tires would you recommend for a 2004 Honda VT-1100C?
Over 3 years ago
Found the exact size for the front, having trouble with the rear. Would you recommend different tires? If So, Which ones? Thanks

A: A lot of things need to be taken into account when changing a tire size.Tires ‘grow’ at speed – temperature and centrifugal force cause a spinning tire to be measurably larger than one at rest. Tires need clearance in many dimensions. Tires that are too wide can hit swingarms, chains, or driveshafts. Tires that are too large in circumference change gearing ratios and speedometer readouts, and can contact fenders or swingarms. Wide tires are not necessarily a better thing. They universally ‘turn in’ worse than a skinnier tire of the same make and model, and usually hurt fuel mileage. If a rear tire is made wider and the front not adjusted for, rears have the tendency to ‘push’; effectively making the rider fight to guide the vehicle into a turn. The designers who engineer bikes usually are highly trained, and they apply that training to find a tire combination that accents a vehicle’s virtues, and minimizes its shortcomings. With all that said for handling and clearance reasons we recommend you stay with the stock size that the bike was designed for. Feel free to give us a call at 888-676-8853 and we would be happy to help you out with your order and choosing the right tires for you.

A: Both tires will be black wall models. The sizing is the same between the two but the mt90-16b 74h has a higher load rating versus the 130/90-16hb 73H as designated by the 74H and 73H tags on the end of the tire model.

Q: I have a question about types of tires
Over 5 years ago
What are the differences between a 130/70-18B 63H, a 130/70/HR18 63H and 130/70R18 GI tires? I'm looking specifically at the Metzeler ME880 line.

A: 130/70-18B 63H is a bias ply tire. 130/70/HR18 63H is a radial version. 130/70R18 GI is the specific ME880 front tire for a Honda Goldwing GL1800. For your VTX1800C, the 130/70/HR18 63H is the tire recommended by Metzeler.

Q: Tube or tubeless
Over 5 years ago
Buying replacement tires for my 2008 Kawasaki Vulcan 900. Metzler were recommended. Do these come with tubes or are they tubeless?
MotosportStaff

A: The tires are sold individually without tubes. Depending on your model, you may or may not need tubes (some Kawasaki Vulcan 900s in 2008 had spoked rims while some were cast- this will determine the use of tubes).
Brew
Over 5 years ago
A: Great recommendation. Most tires mounted are tubeless. You only put a tube in a tire when you have a small hole in your tire and want to save tire or tire place will patch from the inside of tire. But if tires need replaceing, don't waste money on a tube.
