Time for a new...
« on: Nov 11, 2021, 07:39:17 pm »
Well thought I might invest in a new front tire since when looking down on mine looks like the shape of the top of an egg. Called my dealer and low and behold he had an ACC in stock and they never stock Avon's. Came home and pulled it off and will drop it by tomorrow evening.

I just rolled 21,3xx and was sure I was in need of pads also up front but doesn't look like they have worn at all since I checked them good at 16k.

    :thumbs: Sorry to say this is my forth front :( Original Metz, Avon Cobra, Avon Cobra Chrome now another ACC. Love them Avon's they stick so good on our 740 lb. bikes. So I am averaging 5-6K per set with pretty aggressive riding. Rear may have another 2K on it. No burnouts just pushin like hec into turns eats my fronts up. ;D I don't ride it as hard since getting the Vmax, I leave the real aggressive stuff for the Max  :raider:

      I think about 10k is all I have ever gotten on a front tire.  I could be wrong, but I got another post.

      I usually get around 20K km (12K miles) out of a front Avon and not much more out of the rear. Avons are hard to come by up here in Canada so Im going to try Dunlop Elite 3's for a set
