Default michelin for p180 ? where? question for good mechanic too as well.

hey, i am from mumbai & have a p180 classic.

wanted to go for michelin front and rear.

currently i have 100/90-18 rear & forgot which front.

Anyway i want to shod michelin on the bike now -rear and front . Where in mumbai can i get them and at what price. I live in chembur so navi mumbai, eastern suburbs or central/south mumbai dealers are preferrable for me.

I also had quite some work done on my bike from a major bajaj service centre but my problem of low mileage hasnt gone away. A local mechanic says problem with the carb.
So also recommend a good mechanic near chembur/navi mumbai

For the tyres go for Pirelli Sport Demons, i found it much better then the Michelins.

They come in the same price range too.

Get michelins 4.00 * 18 , thats what i am running now ,second tyre .Its very good. Get 3.5 or 3.75 since your is classic.
I even had pirelli sport demon 110 * 18 , it damn heavy and after the thread has gone ,it tramlines a lot .

You get michilens from KRP -
KRP Shoppe

both michelin and pireli should cost u like 2000 rs a piece.
Go for michelin.

The Sport Demon is heavier then the Michelins?? How heavy is it?

I used both the Michelins and the Sport Demons on my 01 CBZ. I found the grip and handling on the Pirellis much better then the michelins. I am no GP racer but could make out quite a difference.

After the tread has gone you need to change the tyre, any bald tyre will tramline......
