LeMans 1000 16” Front Wheel

Recommended Posts

I suppose everybody's bike is different but I have a 86 LM1V with over 180K miles and been through many tires.  Swapped bikes with a bud with his 02 Lemans way back when on a Texas trip and he told me my suspension sucked.  I guess after all those miles I had just adjusted to to it.  He ordered progressive rear shocks and fork springs for me and it really improved the bike.   The best combination I have found for tires afterward is a michelin macadam on the rear and metzeler lasertec 33 on the front.  Worst were bridgestone bt45 as had tank slapper scary deals when riding fast over elevation changes.

Hmmm. I've had a hard time finding anything good to say about Lazertecs. I appreciate your riding abilities, and this is a first.. :rasta::grin:

It is funny. Way back in the early 90's I used Lasertec 33's and liked them. They were a great front tire, even used them for light track duty. Then at some point they developed a bad reputation, deserved or not I don't know. I had stopped using them, not because of issues with them but because I was riding motorcycles that ran radials. When I started hearing bad things about them I was surprised.
