    bt 020 sport tours on gixxer?

    I just had bridgestone battlaxe o2o's installed on my 02 750gix. they seem o.k.
    I've gotten rid of the ckicken strips in some twisties and they seem really sticky when hot, but am i selling myself short by having sport touring tires meant for a bigger bike on my gix, or would it take a pro to tell the diff.
    what do you think?

    I don't think it will make much difference. But it depends how you ride. They should last longer than a set of 014s though.

    They are fine tires that'll corner or accelerate. Where you may find they come up a bit short compared to pure sport tires is if you try to do both at once. As in either trail braking very hard into a turn or getting on the throttle hard in the exit.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
