im finding it hard to get a rear tyre for my 1995 bike.most 130/80-16 tyres i can see are for scooters.my bike will do about 105mph flat out.i only ride between 60-80mph.will i be alright putting on a scooter tyre with speed rating p 94mph?
check out the Pirelli Diablo Scooter tires. They run around $60-$70 and aren't too bad
I've got one on the rear and love it. Can't remember what the speed rating is..but I made sure it was high enough to be able to go around 100mph. To me, that just makes me trust that it will hold up fine going 70-80mph for hours at a time.
Scooter tires are fine as long as you don't put a tire designed for the rear on the front and vice versa
you can also go slightly bigger on tires. They don't have to be the stock size. I recommend 130/90-16 for the rear and 100/90-16 for the front. The Pirelli Sport Demons are incredible. I now only have one on the front, but they handle really well.
