Do we get Continental tires for motorcycles in India by any chance?

The grip is fabulous but I am not sure how easily it can be put on a UG3 Pulsar.

Pulsar has 17" tyres. I wonder how you will fit R15 tyres on it!

So does R15 Nikhil. My only doubt is on the profile & the quality of rims to support tubeless tires.

I asked at the dealer they are saying it can be fitted .but they wont fit for bikes and has to be done from outside. It is wide for a 100/90 and i feel some thing alteration might me needed. My bike is 2005 model and somewhere i read tubelsess cannot be fitted on older generation of pulsar alloys.
I checked michelin sirac also 120/80 X 17 .It very heavy compared to 100/90 MRF's and delear quoted around Rs.2600.

Hehe & I was wondering why are you replying like that

Btw any idea if the old Pulsar alloys had strong enough rim borders/lip to support a tubeless tire

Thumbs up

Nikhil, how good or bad are IRC's compared to M45's, I ask this because most of the Pulsars now come with IRC tyres.

CHEERS,
