Need a new set for my 09 kp low. Heard a lot about high speed wobble with radial ply tires.Had Perelli night dragons on my 09 Kawi Vulcan and really liked Them. Has anyone tried them on the KP?
So you're having good luck with the Night Dragons, with radial rear/bias front combo? I have an 11 Kingpin with stock oem tires. I have a head shake on deceleration around 45 mph. I've been changing tire pressure, trying to pin point the problem, and I'm almost convinced it's tire related. Just trying to decide what tires to go with. I don't think I want to go with oem.Running Pirelli Night Dragons on my 11 kingpin. Very good tire. Good dry and wet traction and hard enough compound for a decent lifespan. Fantastic value due to price. Run the radial in rear and bias up front. I had an 05 Vegas 8-Ball that I put a Kingpin front end on. Ran Metzeller 880 Marathons on it. Dealer screwed up and got me a biased front by mistake. BEST mistake made! While lots were complaining about the front end wobble with the same tires (with radial on front), I NEVER had an issue. The unsprung weight of the tire and composition of the radial make them a bad fit for Kingpins. Look at a lot of Euro bikes that are known for high speed handling. Most come with radial rears and biased fronts...
eBay and Amazon...... 2 or 3 vendors will all carry the same lowest price.That's exactly what I am planning to do as I didn't see a bias in the right size for the rear. Thanks for the input. Do you remember where you got them from? I think bike bandit is the best I found.
