A friend of mine is buying a Pulsar 150 next month. He's a new to bikes basically but likes to ride fast...so he would die with the stock tyre I'm suggesting a tyre change for him immediately as I know the stock ones aren't any good. Which is the best tyre & also the size for a combination of handling & comfort ? Advise please

Bevada Hi, I am Ashok from bangalore n I suggest you visit http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/bajajpulsar/ for everything on Bajaj Pulsar. I had Pulsar 180 Classic (the old non faired version), one of the first Pulsars delivered in Bangalore. Got it fitted with Eliminator - tyre MRF Zapper-130/90 size and finally sold the bike last year with 40,000 km on odo.

I am sure many of your queries have been discussed in detail in the above forum and you will find an answer too.

and No. I am not the moderator of the abv group. me just a member and a bike enthusiast

Dosent the Eliminator have really small rear wheel like a 15 or 16 inch or something. How did you fit that to a Pulsar which has a 18 inch front. Got pics?

Do the 110/90 Pirelli's fit the Unicorn without a foul? Do they have any tyres for the front with the similar tread?

Default pulsar tyre upgrade

Hello all

i have a 2003 pulsar 150 dtsi, had stock tyres till now.

the front and rear tyre are due for change, so was thinking whether to stick to stock options or shift to other brands.

currently it runs mrf zapper on stock spoke rims.

what would be the best option. shift to other brand (suggest some please) or stick to mrf.

the bike will be mostly used by my father inside the city.

appreciate your help.

thanks

I'm sure they make different sizes to fit various bikes. You will need to look around.
