    Question Rear Tyre for Junoon

    Hi everybody,how u doing.
    My Yamaha Junoon came with Panther 2.50-18 4PR stock rear tyre. Front wheel has same tyre too and for a drum brake, it provides enought braking power at the front.
    But i am not satisfied with its grip at the rear. It skids too easily.

    So i tried a bigger tyre "Panther 3.00-18 6PR", but result was worst this tyre used to skid even more than 2.50-18 4PR. All it did was a little decrease in acceleration and increased fuel consumption, reduced around 5Km/L with this tyre. The tyre with its tube was quite heavy as compared to stock one.
    Anyway , i just put the stock tyre back on.
    Now i want a tyre with excellent grip but not too big in size ( as size doesn't always matter as i experienced).
    Kindly tell me some good options in 2.50/2.75 size. 3.00 is probably a little too much for Junoon.

    Below are the pics of stock and upgraded one

    Yes the tire manufacturing companies and experts also say the the bigger is not always the better...
    You just need the right rubber 4 ur ride.

    As u might know, im using service cruiser and its doing good..
    It gives sporty and heavier looks but is 2.50/18 - 6PLY rating.

    Id say stick to 2.50 as all the people said 2.75 would wobble and sahi say rim pey charhay ga nahi...

    but if u want offraoding, R1s experience was bad with this tire... but so far m9 is very good even in rain and mud.

    Service Cruiser is very good tyre in 2.50.18R size
    its tough tyre so does not gets puncture easily
    And obviously its an sporty tyre you need to be careful in rainy conditions
    every tyre lose grip in rainy condition so one needs to be careful

    Yamahs here in PK have always been very happy and very good with thin tires, theres something different with their center of gravity and suspension set up which separates them from others and hondas...

    I remember my old yamaha YB100 also had awesome brakes, the whole front suspension would press largely just by applying rear brakes with no skidding. it also had a 2.50/18 - 4ply rating tire.

    Service cruiser 1390 Rs. 6 PLR.
    Check ur options:
    Longlife Tyre, SERVICE
    http://www.miantyre.com/motorcycle_tyres.htm, PANTHER
    http://diamondtyres.com/Motorcycletyre.php, DIAMOND
    http://haqtyres.com/p_detail.php?cat_id=3 FLYING HAWK
    http://www.ghaurityres.com/motorcycle-tyre.html GHAURI TIRES


    U can also check R1s thread, juste's thread for tire info.. here goes mine:
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/bik...tailing-pics-3

    Page 3 for tire updates.

    Remember always keep 32~35 PSI Max. in rear tire, 25 ~28 PSI Max. at front.
    U'd get longer tire life, more grip, comfortable ride.

    I have driven only once my deluxe in rain honestly speaking i did not feel at all i have a sports tyre
    but people say this tyre loses grips in rain & looking at its design i am saying this as its flat
    Service cruiser 2.50 18 is installed in my friends 70cc i had gifted him this tyre
    he had driven his 70cc in rainy condition on highway & on mud too
    he was saying, i did not feel any difficult driving this in rain

    ^^ Exactly.. same here, i second that.

    I think those who lost grip or experienced skidding with this tire was because they were using a broader tire on thinner rim which causes dis-balance and its more likely that the tire would skid harsh to one direction.

    My review on above stated tires:
    1- panther, service the best.
    2- Diamond 2nd best, using it in my cd70 and no complains going smooth.
    3- flying hawk - heard that this has satisfactory results too mainly from sellers.
    4- ghauri tires- the most unheard about and less talked about, not tested cant say anything.

    @automotorsport_lover,u r rite.In tight turns,these slim Yammmies give a good support as compare to others.
    @Poster,I think if u aren't satisfied with stock tyre(which is better in tread design than service cruiser) then its difficult that Service cruiser will give better grip than Stock Panther.What u say @Auto.

    I say cruiser is at par if not better than stock service tire at appropriate tire pressure.
    I think its the same as other normal tires, but its tough and would provide better puncture protection..

    but for a YB100 royal, id recommend the simple one.. it worked awesome on it!!

    i believe you are refering to stock panther tire?? if so , then i guess i should stick to stock one. ain't gonna get nothing magical by changing it.

    My junoon had stock service tyre, how come urs had a panther?

    Rear Tyre for Junoon -1073212

    Had this service longlife as stock on my junoon.
    Cruiser is also from the same longlife series...

    Both have same grip(my opinion) and Cruiser seems more rugged.

    What about front tire?
    I dont think so there can be a panther tire from company... Yamaha, Honda and most brand use service as stock tires...

    U have a special case hehe.. check the front is it panther? or service!

    I have heard that when u claim a tyre, u get option for replacing with panther or service etc.
    I guess in ur case the dealer had ur tire claimed with panther one... ? can be..
