Rear Tyre advice an400

Dear All
Happy New Year ,and safe free riding,
Can i ask for some advice please.
My newly aquired AN400 2004 is nearing a renewal of the rear tyre 130/70/13

Im already scrubbing in the front SHINKO tyre which apparently has many favourable reviews.

I Noticed a burgman 400 blogger had fitted a 150 / 60/ 13 to the same year bike as mine,,,,is this a possibility

Always a concern is the amount of wet weather and poor surfaces we have in UK.

THANKS IN ADVANCE OF ANY POINTERS
John

I am not sure there is enough clearance for a 150/60/13. I went with the Michelin City Grips for here in Florida. We get some serious rain here in the summers. They work great.

I recently put a Michelin Power Pure SC on my 2013 B400 and am very pleased with it so far in a variety of conditions. I cannot comment on tread life yet, but other users have commented that they get a lot of mileage out of it. It seems to ride smoother than the OEM tires, too, and I've got it inflated at 35 psi.

Some people are like slinkies. They're not very interesting, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

^^^^DITTO on the above. I am also running the Michelin Power Pure SC on my 2008 B400 for over 3 months now, so far very good in all conditions. I had a Shinko on the back before with no issues, I just wanted to see if this Michellin would give me more than the 7,000 miles I've been getting from the Shinko's. I still have a Shinko on the front. The combo seems to work well.

I tried the Power Pure on the back of my 2006. It was Ok but I wasn't impressed with it enough to fit another. Same with the Shinko I ran on it. Now running the City Grip and I'm much happier with it. Have not worn it out yet so don't know for sure how long it will last. It does seem to wearing well though. I am impressed enough with the handling that I will likely fit another when it wears out.

As for fitting the 150/30 I agree with 12String that the clearance is going to be tight. You may get it in there but I'm not sure you won't have off and on rubbing issues.

A deliberate pun?

Love my city grips. I bought them because they seemed the best wet tire I could find. I wore out my rear in one season in 2015 (way past the tire life, it was scary) with around 9,000 miles on it. The front was not gone, but had cupping, so I replaced it anyway. In fairness to the tires I did not do a good job of keeping up on the air pressure.

I put on a new set in spring 2016. I think (not sure) I have 6-8000 miles on them and I'm still good to go for spring riding in 2017.
