    😭😭😭 front tyres punctured

    Really peeeed off
    Finished work and went to the bike, couldn't turn the wheel, felt like the steering lock was on. Got off and saw the front tyre completely flat.

    Had I noticed it earlier I could have jack up recovery and not have to wait as long. But now I'm waiting for recovery in my own time.

    Does anyone know what the stock tyre size is for a 2013 s1000rr front and back

    Also
    Which tyres would you guys recommend and why
    I'm deciding between metzeler m7rr or bridge stone s21

    That sucks.

    120/70/17 & 190/55/17 Same as what is fitted.
    Either tyre mentioned is great, but make sure it's a pair.

    Front is 120/70 ZR 17, Rear is 190/55 ZR 17

    Never used the tyres you have mentioned but I know loads of riders who rave about the M7RR

    Hope the recovery comes quick.

    Seems stick size is 190 55 17 and 120 70

    Being told the metzeler m7rr is a good tyre which I've used but the bridge stone apparently are newer and better
    But I ain't used the bridge stone

    Both are great tyre options, the M7RRs are very popular though the S21s are also a great options.
    They do feel rather different though as Bridgestone generally have a rather stiff carcass. I really enjoyed S21s, particularly the front as I found this extremely confidence inspiring (though it doesnt give as much feel as Pirelli or Metzeller)

    Lol.

    M7RRs or Rosso3s would be my choice.

    Pretty sure it's a puncture
    Its highly unlikely someone let it down
    Unless my parents or my boss are trying to kill me
