Front tire ?? Gl1500

Post  Hichey on Tue Mar 19, 2013 6:36 am

Hi All,

I know this may have been talked about before but I can't find it (not a computer nut). But what rear tire will fit on the front of a Gl1500 ? I heard the a Bridgestone Battlex will work but what other tire will work. I have a few more miles to go before I have to change it out. Just doing reseach.

Front tire

Post  cpwomer on Thu Apr 04, 2013 10:09 pm

130/70H-18 part number 53921, Michelin - Pilot Activ Rear tire $111.99 Motorcycle Superstore, Phone 887-668-6872....Now if you notice it is a rear tire, make sure you have it installed with the arrows going backwards, This will put the optimum technology in a rear tire going in the right direction. Also I prefer to use balance beads for balancing a tire about 32.00+ for 2oz. bag for front tire and 3 oz pac for the rear tire...Well worth the expense. Also know as dynabeads or counter balance beads. I own a 88 GL1500 for this app.
