    Just bought an XB9S 03 model, Needs Tires. Looking at the Pirelli Scorpion tires. Have had good luck with Pirelli in the past. I have heard the XB9's are very sensitive to tire types. Is this a good choice or does somebody have some other recomendations?:D

    Just bought Metzler M3, I have worn out 4 sets of different tires to find just the right combo. I do tour a lot, last set of Avons got 7,ooo rear. I don't think the xb9 is that sensitive so it depends on how you ride. I'll let you know about the M3:)

    Believe it or not, the Continental ContiAttack is the best I've ran on my 04 XB-12R so far (4th set of tires). Decent mileage, excellent grip (even on Deal's Gap) and really good feedback. Who'd have guessed?

    Best tires for any sport bike are definitely Rotella. Definitely.
