'03 Ninja 500 R Tires

7057 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  ScottSellersUNR
I'm wondering what brand and sizes of tires anyone else may be using on a Ninja 500 R. The specs are for 130/70 rear and a 110/70 front, they seem a little hard to find. :sob: :moped: The bike will be used as a starter track and street bike.

Any help will be appreciated.

I think most sport turing tires would be fine for the little R.
They have softer compound rubber on the side and harder in the middle.
Just make sure you get sport turing and not turing tires.
I have been happy with the Dunlop D220's
They take a little longer to heat up but stick.
Most any brand would be fine for a newbie.
