When I first put the metzler on front and rear I liked them. Of course almost anything would feel noticeably better if your going from something worn out.
I had them on about a year or so and started to notice something going on with the bike. It would vibrate around 60 mph. You know how in the old nylong car tire days where your snow tires would vibrate the car in a 10mph area??
Anyway, I checked the steering head bearings and even replaced the rear engine mount. Still did the same thing. Tread was fair on the front but cupping like a 4X4 so I replaced it with a standard dunlop before take off for sturgis that year. Ran real nice all this time.
Now that metzler on the back is getting pretty worn in the center like they do so I was just wondering.
Whatever I get if it works well I may buy a spare front and rear to have on hand. In these times you never know and it might even be a good trade or sell item. I think the front tire is the same on the dyna and the sporty except the sporty is spoked and needs a tube.
