Has any one else fitted Avons new sprint tyres, I had some fitted 500 hundred miles ago and wet or dry they transformed the handling, I would recamend you try a pair you wont regret in

Curious what you had on before - always good to know where you started from to get transformed handling.

Before the AVONs I had Bridgestone  O/E tyres, they were shot after 3000 miles.

Hi, I'm interested to know if anyone has any experience of the Avon Storm 3D X-M tyres.  A friend says they are good on his VFR800, but I wondered if any Z1000SX riders could say if they suit the SX.
Thanks.

I had them on a FJR13000, and they were fine, however they are now superceded by the Spirit. as above. The 3d-XM are sstill availaable as the "budget" alternative.

I contacted Avon for recommendations for the SX.

Here is their answer

Hi,
 
Thank you for the below email.
 
Please see below our recommended fitment;
 
F – 120/70ZR17 3D Ultra Sport
R – 190/50ZR17 3D Ultra Sport
 
Many thanks,
 
Avon Motorcycle Technical

Hi rivertone,
Thanks for the info on the Avons.  I'll have a look into it.

Cheers.
