    My brother has installed MRF 100/90-18 and its really a soft rubber tyre and have a great road grip. He bought that tyre from Jawad Autos in Saddar, Rawalpindi. Everything seems to be good for this tyre even the top speed of the bike is the same as it was with the stock tyre. The only thing I felt was that the bike is giving a heavy feel. The initial pick had also decreased but breaking has improved alot.
    Please share your experiences.

    Sharing my experience of having 90/90 rare tyre on stock rim, so far so good and I'm satisfied. I don't drive hard but when those rare moments of urgency comes, this tyre never failed me, whether it'll be the initial pickup, breaking power or the confidence on 100+ speed.

    brother frankly speaking it all depends on the riding style. i did not feel any major difference while riding gs with different tyres. the best option in the market is to get a servis 100-90/18 which costs 2300 rs. dsi, dunlop will cost around 4000 rs so better avoid them and get servis with warranty. its a good tyre

    Its servis tyre. One thing that I like to point out is that GS stock rim is slightly narrower than Honda Deluxe Rim, I observed it a couple of days ago.

    So I am too inclined to to go for Deluxe rim, just for the sake of slightly better road grip.

    I second that.

    I went for 90/90 as I don't drive like death is chasing me, lol ...

    But no doubt, if we are talking about the best tyre from road grip and breaking point of view, 100/90 is the best option.

    You may loose a couple of km/l if your drive style is NOT calm otherwise it'll be unnoticeable.

    Did someone experienced 100/90-18 made by service which just launched a few months ago? I examined service tyres and compared with the imported one. I found that our local tyres are harder than the imported ones. I compared service's 100/90 with MRF's 100/90 and found service to be harder. Anyone having real experience really comment.

    Bro 100/90 of servis has almost the same tread pattern as the 90/90 cruiser has. So u canexpect skidding in wet roads on 100/90 too. If u dont have budget then go for Panther Trekker 90/90-18 which is available in market for around 1800 PKR. Trekker has very good tread pattern.
    Other option is imported tyres which would cost u around 4k in 100/90 category.

    So finally today I changed my rear tyre and installed service 100/90-18. Got it for Rs.2500 from tyre house on Murree road.

    My experience:
    - tyre rubber is harder than Panther and other good imported tyres.
    - very poor road grip when applied hard breaks @ 70-80 km/h speed.
    - it also skids even when riding with 2 persons (total passenger weight was +200 kg)
    - did not felt any difference in initial pick or top speed.

    My little brother also has a GS with MRF 100/90-18 zapper-y installed. His bike jams on the road when applied hard breaks and never skids. The tyre rubber is very soft. The tyre cost was Rs.4300/-

    Uptil now I would say service 100/90 is just an average tyre. I have found panther 90/90 having more grip than service 100/90.
