    Avon Cobra Chrome tyres

    Any one changed these yet, either due to preference or wear? I have over 4.5k miles on mine and I think it will need replacement in the next 1k miles. I usually get 8k miles out of sport-touring tyres like roadsmarts so I was wondering if 5k is good or bad from these Avons.

    Avon tire rewards and recall

    Last summer I put on an Avon cobra chrome rear tire when they were running their rebate and got a $20 rebate. About a month later I got a matching front tire. I sent in both receipts and got another $60 rebate. I put about 7000 miles on the rear when Avon came out with their recall. I talked...

    Avon Cobra Chrome recall

    Seems to be some Canadians trying to spread BS about a recall on Cobra Chromes and even texting people that their tires are part of the recall. Seems they say they are from Fort Nine a Canadian motorcycle parts supplier. And are sending out a very official recall notice. Stay tuned. [Note...

    Avon Cobra Chrome

    I replaced the rear Bridgestone with the Cobra Chrome before a trip last month. The new tyre seemed better than the Bridgestone. A week ago I replaced the front Avon Cobra 140 with a Cobra Chrome 150. So now both the front and rear are Cobra Chromes. As a combination they are easily the best...

    Avon Chrome tire$$$$

    For $587.00 dollars this tires had better be really good. Ordered a set tonight. They had better be a big improvement over the past series. That and a rad cover black lower from Hermy's is getting a bit. $59.96 for that. Mine was cracked from road debris. Went to work today due to rain. Nothing...

    Avon Av71 discontinued

    Well I found out today that my order for the Av71 front tire for my 2015 r3t was cancelled by Dennis Kirk due to the tire being discontinued. It's been back ordered since Christmas. I spoke with the Avon rep from Cooper tire earlier today, and I told him that I already have a brand new Av72...

    Avon Tires- Have You Heard This?

    Bought a new Avon Cobra tire to install on my Roadster front end(just put a new Avon 240 on the rear). This is my 3rd set of Avon Cobras. Fantastic tires, grip like glue, never an issue of any sort. I went to a local Honda dealer to have the new Cobra mounted and balanced which they said they...

    Avon or Metzler?

    Time for new shoes already. Put 5K on since I got the bike in May. I've got a thing about wanting front and rear tire to match, and am not going to go darkside, so that leaves me with those options. I've never had Avons. I've had Metzlers on my 'zuki and wasn't overly impressed, especially...

    Avon Tires Rule!!

    I replaced my stock size tire with the Avon 140/75. Steering was a huge improvement and not necessarily because the front dropped a half inch. I already have +1” shocks. It’s the profile. The 150 tire is too wide IMO for the rim and it wraps around to where the sides are vertical. So when you...

    Avon 140/75x17 front first ride

    Hi Fellas Tyre Time so I went Avon Cobra's back and front ...these seem to be the common choice and I prefer front and back to match so bit of a no brainer really . Previously run Metz and never really had a problem with grip BUT did suffer from funky wear on the front . I did decide to drop...

    Front tire whine on turns

    I have been hearing - yes, through the helmet, over the wind and engine noise - a high pitched whining or hum when I'm banking in either direction at anything over 40MPH. It's pretty nerve wracking when leaning into a turn at 70+ and hearing this noise wondering if the tire is gonna make it...
