  • Switching tires

    Looking for any advice on switching from a Michelin to Pirelli tire. Current setup is a 1gen sv, stock fork tubes 7mm showing, Ohlins rear shock max length with Michelin DOT 120/70 and 160/60. Switching to Pirelli slicks of respective sizes. Can't seem to find any information of actual sizes in order to ballpark geometry changes. Also been a long time since I ran pirellis, but seem to remember the Michelin were harder and I had to soften up all the dampening. Any advice to help start my weekend out in the right direction?

    Put them on, go ride and than change if needed.

      That's what I ended up doing, did need to firm things up a bunch, was a lot like riding a pogo stick for the first while!
