I have Bridgestone Battlax tires on my 2-wheeler and I need new tires. But there are about 15 fucking types of battlaxes out there and I don't know which ones are mine. The tire says 050 on it but I can't find those anywhere. I got 5k out of the stock tires.

How do I find out what come stock on my bike?
OR....
What tire will give me the best mileage (in Texas) for 90% highway driving (Bridgestone or any other brand)?

Thanks, troops.

I also have BT-010 on my machine,they have excellent grip and they are wearing well,I expect 5K or better from them,not bad for a fairly sticky tire.For you I would reccomend BT020,they have 90% of the BT010's grip but will last about 50% longer(in other words about 7 to 8 K):2cents:

020's it is. Thanks for the info, ninja's.
You may actually want to look into the special that Pirelli is running. Buy the rear and get the front free. People are walking away with both tires, brand new for around $140 (including shipping.)

Check out www.rrash.com - Get the number and call Adam. He will hook you up!

Yeah... I think we are going to throw a set on Heidi's R6 and buy a spare set for the TT for next season.

ya right, you did not just say that, you at least have to go through a couple pair of tyres a year.:twofinger
I have a pretty hectic Summer planned out working both jobs... My riding time is going to be minimal at best.

I can't find that deal on the website, nor can I find a telephone #.

I'm pretty sure the 050 is the same tire that was on my 900rr (used) i bought from the dealer, it's a sport touring tire i thought and should've lasted alot longer than 5k
