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.
Well i have service cruiser on, and today i was having trouble following my friend's pridor in "tooti phooti" streets.
My gs comes with mrf 100/90-18 previous user use this tyre 7k km and tread and performance of this tyre still like new,excellent road grip, no skid on hard braking.if you have budget go for mrf,tvs,golden boy, dsi otherwise service, panther,dunlop, diamond e.t.c
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.
people need to grow up sometimes and act MATURE !
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.
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.
- 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.

On right - panther 3.00-18 (stock tyre). I used my stock tyre 33000 kms (2 years approx)
Tyre Tread pattern in very important thing while choosing a tyre, a good pattern makes a tyre worthy
