Hi!

Has anyone tried Bridgestone V02 slicks on 899? Sizes seem odd 120/600 and 200/655 but if you look at the dimension they aren't that different from Pirelli Supercorsa SC's. And Bridgestone say they are ok on 5.5 rim.

Pirelli Supercorsa SC
Front 120/70, diameter: 600mm, width: 119mm
Rear 180/60, diameter: 656mm, width: 193mm

Bridgestone V02
Front 120/600, diameter: 603mm, width: 117mm
Rear 200/655, diameter: 655mm, width: 194mm

Does the swingarm have enough clearance? Can you fit a tire warmer there also?

Thanks!

Ive never ran the bridgestones but I have run a Dunlop Slick 200/55 with warmers no problem. Switched back to Pirelli's because I love the feedback from the soft carcass tire.

Hi JiiBee, I know this post is quite old but wondering if you tried the V02 200/655 yet on your 899. Just booked a track day for July and looking for tire options.

there different opinions out there if you should put the 200 tire on the pani 5.6“ rim. Would be great to hear from someone who actually did it.

thx
Tano
