I have read a lot of threads about tires but i don't know which one to decide.I saw your suggestions about Pirelli
Sport Demon and i saw that a lot of people here who use them are happy.But i read from some guys here that
the sport demon doesn't last longer than standard tyres.What are the differences between the 2 tyres and what do i have to prefer?

Thanks in advance!

if you've read the numerous tyre threads then you really should be able to make your mind up already. i'm at 7k on the Avon and they don't need changing but they're a bigger tyre than both the Pirelli and the Bridgestone. i don't remember reading anything about any of them being worse than the Michelin, but the Sportys are absolutely shocking.

I hear good things about both, i personally am using the Pirelli Sport Demon's and i am very happy with the levels of grip in the wet and amazing in the dry.

MrWhite i am at 13k on the stock one tyres.I basically want to change them because i wear them for 3,5 years on my bike.Why did you pick Avon?In my country Sport Demons have 185€ fitted?Is it a good price?

185€ seems alright, yeah. and i chose the Roadriders because i saw them perform on a bike with a capable rider and a 180 kit driving it.

Oh alright white.I think that in the end i will prefer Sport Demon.I didn't hear noone in here saying something bad about them except of the years that they last.Any users of Bridgestone?

I have the sport demons, I cannot fault them at all. Any of the above will be MUCH BETTER than the stock. yes they may last long but in the wet and dry there terrible, don't care what anyone says.

I've only recently run them in properly, I can say that I defo feel much more confident with them on. The bike handles well, I can go into corners much quicker. As its been raining recently i can say that these tires have performed amazingly! They hold the road well!

i'll be going to the BT45s when the time comes. i think they look nicer than the Pirelli, Muddy's got them and they looked quite flat.

My Sport Demons are almost at 10k miles, and the rear is only just starting to show signs of needing replacing.

That is MUCH longer life than the stocks surely?
