If you don't mind fitting the R125 cup sizes of 110/70 on the front and 150/60 on the rear, then yes you could theoretically fit them. You might need to space the rear sprocket to get the chain to clear the edge of the tyre. You might also want to check your insurer will cover you for a non-standard size fitment of tyre.

Pirelli Sport Demon, are one of the recommended fitment for the R125, and are a highly rated tyre. Pirelli are very good at making sporty road tyres. Interestingly, Pirelli and Metzeler are the same company.

Ok, thanks :D
I'm tempted to try it, but also think of buying the Pirelli sport demon
I personally would go for the sport demon.
Wouldn't the extra rubber quite seriously alter the performance?

Would it be an advantage / disadvantage?
You say the R125 track bikes use that setup?

hmm...
I thought of the metzlers because my cousins husband speaks so highly of them, and he's a yamaha mechanic.

I don't doubt how good they are...
I just know that MANY people highly rate the Pirellis, and they come in the stock sizes...

runey, this is slightly off-topic, but how much is a loaf of bread, and how much is 1litre/2pints of milk?
