    What happens puncture a tire while riding ?

    I was wondering if anyone had a tire puncture/blow out and at what speed ? What happens...does the tire retain shape, or do you get knocked over the handlebars ? Any one experience this yet ?

    CB650R Stock Dunlop tires causing jumpiness in turns ?

    Hi Everyone, Loving my 2021 CB650R. I am a new rider...and I put 500 km on the bike so far. I'm a bit unsure of how far i can lean the bike in a turn, but not afraid to lean it. I notice when I go into a medium to steep lean, the back tire kinda skips a bit. It doesnt feel very firm on dry...

    All 650's Cb650R Official Honda supplied tire change?

    There's a Cb650R that was posted somewhere else and I'm trying to uncover possibly a fraudulent ad. I know for certain 2019-2020 models came with Metzeler Roadtec tire that have a distinctive tread pattern and then in 2021 Honda switched to Dunlop Sportmax (which personally I think are worse)...

    All 650's MAX2H EVO2 Tire Changer Review

    One of the things I both love and hate about motorcycles is changing tires. I've spent more than two decades tracking and racing cars, and as a guy who likes wrenching and doing as much as I can on my own in my garage, I always wanted to mount and balance my own car tires. But the equipment is...

    Front Tire Wearing Out Faster Than Rear?

    When I bought my bike in 2017 I put on a new front tire and kept the rear since the rear was like-new (the previous owner put one on shortly before selling it). I put on 7000 miles (11,000km) since then and I definitely need a new front tire but my back tire still looks ok. I know the rear...

    All 650's Expected tyre life

    Front tyre of my 2019 CB650F (Dunlop Sportmax) developed very small bulges on the contact surface. Took it to the dealer's service (not the dealer where I bought the bike cause they are not a Honda dealer anymore) They accept that there are bulges but they say tyre is at end of its life anyway...

    All 650's Fat tyres

    Has anyone put a wider tyre on the back? Something like 200/55/17? I know it will slightly affect the gearing but it's got enough power for me, it might get the speedo to read a bit closer to actual speed.

    CBR650F You reckon this will be fixable?

    It's a fairly small nail inside the tread. Not sure if it actually fully punctured the tyre. It's only 6000km old so I was hoping to get some more distance out of it.

    CB650R New tyres

    After flattening off my Metzeler rear tyre and also the quite severe cupping of my front tyre I’ve decided to go back to the old faithful Pirelli angel gt2 front and rear as these were amazing on my old bike and lasted 8000 miles with hardly any flattening.
