I run Avon 3DXM's on My Fazer and my bandit, good grip, predictable and don't cost and arm and leg.

I run Metzeler Roadtec 01 SE’s, excellent grip especially in the wet, fast warm up and good mileage. However, they do cost an arm and a leg :lol .

I also use the Avon 3DXM and am happy to recommend them I find that their profile gives great stability and confidence at all lean angles whereas the last Bridgestone's I tried seemed much happier when upright and not as confidence inspiring through the real twisties, the Avons also lasted ~10% longer than the Bridgestone's. The Caveats are that I'm so happy with the Avons I have had no reason to try any other tyre apart from the Bridgestone but that was some time ago and I don't tend to ride in the wet so can't comment on performance on wet roads. Whatever tyres you choose they are going to feel a lot better than the worn out ones  :D

Conti Road Attack 3


Fabulous and the best tyre I have used in 20yrs., wet or dry.


I recently ran the Fazer around Thruxton on them and they were awesome. I have them on the Tiger Sport and also my wife's Street Triple.

Michelin Road 5's, really good wet and dry grip with decent miles out of them. Nearly 6k on the last rear and still was just about legal.

 :agree


Any of the Michelin Pilot range, not the cheapest but for a reason, in my opinion the best all round road tyre.  They're often doing deals via suppliers and cash back at that, last was £30 I think it was, if you bought a pair.
