EC 300 What size rear tyre

Recommended Posts

I currently run a 140 section rear.

Went to my local dealer today to price up a new one and the guy said I should be using a 120'

Chap who was also in buying asked me what bike I had, when I told him he said a 140, a 120 would be no good, they are more suited to 250 4 stroke.

Any ideas please?????????

Personal preference...either will work. But will have different handling characteristics.

I run a 120 on my 300, but its a mt16 that run large, probably closer to a 130. I would never run any bigger. usually 250fs are like 110, even most 250 2 stroke riders i know run 110's, a 120 is about right for a big bore bike.

Ive had my 06 Ec 300 since new. I've always run a Michelin S12 140. I think its the perfect tire for that motor and chassis!
