    Need tire recommendation for my 00 Bandit 600

    I need new tires. At the very least a new front but I will end up getting both. I saw the post about where to get them put on and will go through him BUT what should I get and where can I get the best price.

    For the most part price is going to be the biggest determining factor right now. My plans for the bike are to keep it stock and then sell in to a new rider at the end of the season or next spring when I pick up something else.

    I ride in all weather conditions, im not all that agressive, id love to go a little bit bigger in the rear just for looks but I dont know how big is ok to go without changing the handling characteristics too much.

    So any suggestions on what tired to get and where to pick them up?

    Thanks!

    Stock specs:
    Tires, Front : 120/60-ZR17
    Tires, Rear : 160/60-ZR17

    If you are on a budget, try Shinko. Used to be Yokohama.

    You can get a 120/70 front and 180 rear for about 170 bucks shipped.

    And they are actually decent tires! Bettencourts has them in stock, and so does Parkway Cycle or Performance Factor. Or Naults Honda, Moto Milano or Motorsports International.
