Hey guys. My 2002 FZ1 needs new front tire... In the back I have a BT 020 which I´m happy with.. slides some but lasts and in spirited riding keeps in place... I´m between Battlax 014, 012 or 019 tires... I know the 014 is the sportierst (sp?) of the group, but I don´t want a tire that lasts a year max.. or one that performs badly in the rain.. I´ve done research but still don´t know what "type" of tire are 019 and 012?? Are they sport touring or "super sport"?? By looking at the tread, I´m guessing BT 012 is the best for rain?? because of the center line?? or are 014 or 019 better?? HELP!
I probably won´t do track days, but I use the bike almost daily and hit twisties aprox. every 2 weeks (1/4 inch chicken strips in the rear tire)... What tire do you think will best suit me?? Since I´m buying used, the price is the same for the 3 of them..
