Hi does anyone know whether these tyres would be ok fitted to my GL1100?
BT-17FV 100/90 V19
BT-17RV 130/90 V17

I know they are the right size but not too sure of the rating.
Thanks

I think V rating is more for sprots use, migt not be up to the weight of a Wing.

I don't know Jason. I've seen a few Wings with V rated tyres and never heard of one failing. The makers probably play it safe with ratings. A V rated tyre surely must be as sturdy as one made for the Wing as teh V tyre will get some real abuse on a sports bike.
