I just checked their site and they don't offer the Cobra front in 150/80/17 V rated , only H ??

You are indeed correctamundo!
I also prefer a "V" speed rating, but having a "H" is like 130 mph and "Z" 149 mph so how much time you spend over 130 mph???

I have the same combo you guys are talking about and the bike feels so much better. I recommend it.

That's perfect. @mully95
Was thinking my 140/70R17 was V rated, but I got confused by the previous postof @TO rocket.
There is a V rated 150/80R17 as well.
Now English Bob is confused! Did you mean your 140/75/17? I run the Bridgestone Exedra Max 240/55VR/16 rear and Avon Cobra 150/80VR17 front and found it to be the best combo for me.

Yessir, English Bob!
How bees the Duck of Death?
I run the 140 because I feel the slight rake I get from the slightly taller Excedra Max rear and lower 140 improves handling in the twisties and it doesn't change the circumference ratio enough to affect my ABS.
