Ok, I have to ask...... tyres for a 1976 cb550k3
« on: March 26, 2020, 09:27:20 AM »
Its been a few years since I bought tyres for the cb550.  I have bought bt45's/Metzelers for most of my other bikes but a set of Avon Roadrider MkII seem to be a good price for 3.25/4.00

Just wondering if anybody else has tried them.

BT45s on my 500 four. Handles and stops very nicely, and they last well. :D
