I used them on a bmw 1200gs and they were pretty good all around tires... i would take a shot and try them but i would swap both front and rear at the same time...

I don't think many MVers ride Metzeler, however I have had them for the past two years. They both lost shape/deformed quite suddenly, one with a 'throw' so bad I thought the scoot was going down and me with it. My mechanic has had to return quite a few to the factory under warranty and now no longer stocks them.
I am back on Michelins but I must say they feel more slippery than my Metzelers used to be in the wet.
I thought they were pretty good but kinda felt let down in the end.

BTW, one model has quite a low speed rating too so check the model number carefully.

i've installed a few sets on ETs and the reports back seem to be good.

hopefully they'll come out with an 11" for the LX and some 12's for the bigger bikes...

best,

After my last post 'Two New Metzelers' Two new Metzlers (Post 125334)

My new rear tyre Metzeler 130/70/12 ME7 was giving me the 'bumps' at about 55km/h.
Had enough today, definitely not imagining it so I took it in for a check. Sure enough it was well out of shape. My mechanic has fitted hundreds of Metzelers and never seen a dodgy one like it....until now.

Brand new one going on in the morning FOC of course.

Looking forward to it because other than the bumps, she was feeling like a new scoot on the new rubber.
