Since I have an 16" front and an 18" rear wheel set up on my 80's sportbike there were few options. These were a good value, have a sport like tread pattern and have initially worked well. I would recommend them as I have Sport Demons on some of my other bikes too.

They erased my review 3 times. This tite split the bead when attempting to mount it. DOTnumber indicated it was more than 6 years old.
I tossed it and the front, almost as old. Consider this a lesson. Don't buy tires with DOT date code more than a year old.
Think I'll ever buy here again?
This is the third set of these tires I have owned and I have nothing but praise for wear and grip on the Wet & Dry mountain roads of Tennessee and North Carolina. they have kept me safe even when I am pushing the ragged edge.
I really like the tire but the photos show white lettering and that's the reason why I bought them but they come with no white lettering. So that's why I gave a three star on style. I really wanted the white lettering if I would have known I might not of bought them. But as far as the rest of the tire goes there great!
HANDS DOWN, best option for my '06 ninja 250. Sticky, good in the wet, and little signs of wear after a couple thousand miles. The only thing I had trouble with was installing them with spoons as bias-ply tires can be more of a pain but I've also dealt with worse.
Haven't put much miles on them yet so take this for what it's worth. The tread design looks great and the tires seem really grippy. Much better than the Continental or Shinko I tried before. If these hold up they will probably be my go to tire for my older 1986 Radian.
Everytime I need tires I compare prices but not the brand. This is by far the best set of tires for running around town or out on the weekend looking for twisties!!!
These are very good performance tires

Question:Q: Will the Sport Demons work on a spoke tire with a tubeQuestion asked 2 years 5 months agoI have been looking for tires for my 2012 BONNEVILLE T100 , OEM tires are bias ply on front and radial on rear. I can't find radials that work with OEM size. So I guess I have to go with bias ply front and back? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Its a bit frustrating. I have read that some tires are made to work with a tube and others are not? Help! Thanks!
Question answered by GodfreyUser's contributor status:Question answered 2 years 5 months agoAnswer: A: These tires in 100/90-18 and 130/70-17 are fitted with tubes as standard fitment on my Moto Guzzi V7III Racer, with spoked wheels. I’ve only got 550 miles on the bike so far, but the tires seem to work very well.
Question answered by PaulUser's contributor status: Top 1Question answered 2 years 5 months agoAnswer: A: Yes, the Pirelli Sport Demons will work with inner tubes, and are a terrific choice for all modern (post 2001) Triumph Bonneville models.
Any tires can accept inner tubes. Nearly all modern tires are marked as "tubeless" to show that they can be used on rims and wheels intended for tubeless tires, and create an air-tight seal.
All tires are air-tight. Whether or not a tire and wheel set up can be tubeless depends on if the rim or wheel is air-tight.

Question asked by chippie95
Question:Q: How important is aspect ratio?Question asked Over 4 years agoFor my 2005 Ninja 250, the aspect ratio is 80 for both the front and rear tire. These tires come in the correct width and rim size for my tires, but the aspect ratio is 90 instead of 80. This should only mean that the side wall of the tire will be bigger than the stock tires, if I understand correctly. If I select the correct width and rim size will the tires fit even with a higher aspect ratio?
Question answered by MotoSportExpertUser's contributor status: Expert MotoSport StaffQuestion answered Over 4 years agoAnswer: A: For safety reasons MotoSport only recommends tires that are original size, speed rating, load rating, and construction as the original equipment manufacturer’s.
