Ron Ayers emailed me back to say the front tire is not available.

Imagine being 1000 miles from home and going thru this, tires not available.
I'lll see who locally can order thru Parts Unlimited.

Scoot safe !

I ordered front and back from Ron Ayers and got a confirmation # that they have been shipped. Hope it's BOTH tires and not just the back as I never got an email saying the front was out of stock!

Ha! You should never doubt me! (Except, of course, when I'm wrong.)

I got this from the Gent I purchased my 650 from in AZ, the following is a quote from one of his communications to me:

They are the same size as the original tires the Pirelli model number is GTS23 (front) GTS24 (Rear) You will have a very hard time finding them in stock, Pirelli makes a batch of them once a year, word gets out on the forums, then they are gone. I got 2 from Zdeno Canada (info@zdenocycle.ca) and had to pay Canada duty. Got other 2 from Hayes Hatcher (hayeshatcher@adelphia.net) however they ripped me off pretty bad, I would not recommend them. The tires should be $ 50-60 each but Hatcher charges 220 for both PLUS shipping ! Zdeno was about $ 150 for 2 tires plus about $ 40 customs and shipping. If I had it to do over, Id stick with the OEM tires, too much hassle ! The Pirellis seem to handle better though. The Burgie goes thru rear tires in about 6000 miles since the small wheel spins so fast. The front tire was hardly worn, I replaced it only to match the Pirellis.

Pirelli's New Diablo for Burgman 650

Just received from RonAyers Motorsports the New Diablo's for the 650: part #0340-0035 (rear tire) size 160/60R14 and part #0340-0036 (front tire) size 120/70R15---total $97.64 including shipping. I believe these are newer than, and replace the GTS23/24.

Ron,

The Diablo is a new line. Whether it is destined to replace the GTS series or not, we don't know yet. It is described as a high performance tire with more "stick" on wet road surfaces. That might also translate to reduced mileage due to a softer compound. Again, we don't know yet. If there is enough difference in the tires, Pirelli might keep both series going, one for sport riding & the other for touring. Time will tell.

We do need a couple of members to get the Diablos mounted so that we can get some feedback on their performance.

I don't need tires yet, I hope, but I'm having another slow day at work... I found on MotorCycle SuperStores web site, the Pirelli Diablo 120/70 R15 for $42.99 and the 160/60 R14 for $40.99

This is more for the Canadian members.

I had to order a new rear tire due to a nail causing a BIG hole, so I called my dealer and after some seraching the parts department couldn't find a listing or who would carry Pirellis for the Burgman. Only listing for the Burgman is the Bridgestone and that is from Parts Canada.
I had to go to the other dealer in the other end of town and since I was there I asked about the Pirellis and they too checked the PC book and found nothing. One of the guys suggested a different distributer, FullBore, and they list both the GTS and Diablos.
So if your dealer says they can't find a listing, ask them to check the FullBore catalogue and they should find them. They are both the same price, $83.95. They seem to have, at least today, the GTS is stock and delivery is next day depending on when they order.

So a BIG Thank You to Dan at Wheelsport for both tracking down and finding a tire for me!
