bt45

  1. Dominator / FMX
    Just back in from a 4 hour b-road ride on the new BT45's - the bike is transformed! Kicking myself for persevering with the awful Avon Distanzas for so long - the bike is now stable, copes with broken surfaces and has grip at last - a real pleasure to ride now! Can't speak for off-road riding...

    just wondering if I'm right in thinking the Bridgestones are still the stickiest tyre for a standard rimmed dommie, only used on road.....I've been using Distanzas which I've never felt safe on - I thought it was just me or maybe the dusty, polished roads out here, but I've been reading about...

    Anyone have any ideas on what grab rails would fit a 2001 Alp? I'm slowly turning it into my version of a TransRat. I've taken off the rear rack and replaced the rear indicators, now I need a front fairing. I'm thinking of getting the Puig Alien one with the stacked headlights and either...

    I have decided to take the opportunity to change my tyres whilst my T700A is in having SS spokes . I read on here the BT45's are a decent choice if riding on road at all times so have decided to go for them, although when i went on to Online Tyre Warehouse - Online Tyre Warehouse I noticed...

    Hi, had these tyres fitted and very pleased with them, bit confused over the correct pressure though, shop set them at 29 which feels good and grippy and better as tyres warm up. However when I checked bridgestone site they state 36 rear and 34 front which seems a bit high to me, do you think...

    Just got a set of BT45's on my 700 Alp - removing the renown deathwings I lived with until the front went off. WOW!!!!!!!!! Feels like a different bike. I mostly do tarmac miles with daily commuting and a fair bit of motorway miles so dual compound was a must as was slow and fast speed...

    Does anyone out there use BT45's on their @. I'm embarking on a trip to Europe in September through France and Spain (lots of road miles!) and have been tipped to use the dual compound BT45's. On shopping around for these there seems to be lots of variants of the same tyre. Could someone please...

    Hi, i'm looking for some road-orientated tyres. After some reading in forums i have a shortlist of 2 types: -bridgestone battlewing -bridgestone bt45 I prefer the battlewings (just for the looks :thumbleft:), but because i don't drive off-road, i expect the bt45 to be better... Does someone...

    Hi I had BT45's fitted 500 miles ago because "its what plod use", and now I have a strange low speed head shake - the bars go from side to side. Its really weird. I have looked at the tyres and can only conclude that it is the tread on the front tyre that causes it. The centre grove that runs...
