    Bridgestone runs better. Dark side kind of sucks after you make a few mods to the bike. Suspension upgrades ( Progressive) front and back made no sense to run the Dark-side. Besides after 120 MPH the math don't add up with the dark-side. She will start to wobble.

    Destroyed my rear tyre yesterday after a spirited run. Think I will take the sport next time but I had something to prove.

    If I go darkside it will need to fit in with the abs parameters for circumference

    whats the best tyre combination that works on a 2012 Roadster abs .
    Currently on Metzelers

    NOT the Metzelers, my friend! They suck . . . huge!
    IMHO - the best combo is the 240/55R 16 Exedra Max rear and a 140/75R 17 front.
    More circumference difference than that will likely fault your ABS.

    I also ride a 2012 R3R. I have ran many and currently an Exedra Max rear. I now run a 150/70R17 Michelin Road 5 rear, run in reverse. It has the same circumference as a 140, but more meat on the road and the Road 5 is a superlative handling sport bike tire.

    @1olbull , Show us a picture old one and well now that you have some miles on it what do you think? I was going to set up a front and rear for the bridgy battle criuser h50 while im home. Plus another exedra max rear just in case the h50's are not what they claimed.

    Do the steering head bearings need to be greased and retorqued?

    You run a rear tire up front? Are you crazy? Front tires go on the front. Rear on the rear.

    I run a 170b Excedra Max backwards on the front of mine. :)
