Re: expensive but interesting set of tires

Avon tires are top shelf .

The average moped rider would likely never wear them out , let alone , realizing their performance potential .

Re: expensive but interesting set of tires

My wife runs those on her ninja. They're great tires and that's not actually that expensve either. If you can fit em it might be a nice set for a racier bike

Odd tread pattern

Not really . Look at the Maxxis Hookworm :

Re: expensive but interesting set of tires

I like that one. Patterned for more traction and hydroplaning? I'm guessing.

The hookworm is for bicycles, I don't think it's tread pattern is relevant.

That Avon looks nice though.

Who cares what it's for ? We were talking tread patterns , nothing else .

By the way , Hookworms are very popular in the pedicab business in the south .

And the intestinal system

Re: expensive but interesting set of tires

funzy's look like that too.

I definitely used to snag alotta those old hookworms from pedicab rejects. Decent pedicab companies replace em regularly, whether they need it or not. which is good practice but sometimes you can snag tires with a few hundred left on em and theyre super fun on a 26" BMX.

Re: expensive but interesting set of tires

Yea $120 for a set of nice sticky avons is not bad. They're probably great dry weather tires. And I bet they're not bad on the track with a heavier moped frame, especially considering the next level up is ~$120 a tire.

Re: expensive but interesting set of tires

I swear by Avons (Cobras) on my V-Star 1100, and on my Suzuki Intruder 1400, if it can handle the stump pulling torque of those. It can handle a tuned 50 or 70cc moped. As stated by others, not that expensive either if you shop around.

Ok. I had a few beers last night and got impulsive.

Ordered two of these 2.50 x 17 from denniskirk @40 dollars ea.

https://www.denniskirk.com/avon/am83-streetrunner-tire.pfp544999.prdf

About a 100 bucks total shipped.

Crap shoot? Hoping they'll go on my oem maxi spoked rims with tubes without

too much swearing and stomping.

I know the Newport will take them ok. I've worn through a pair of 2.75 x 17 Michelins on the bike. Widened the swing arm a bit to fit, but it was fine.

I'll report back here soon.

Really did enjoy drinking and shopping last night.

Treats 65cc Airsal kit

Two of these https://www.bulbsdepot.com/457523.html

Two of them tires above

And, just because my life isn't difficult enough... one of these

… a 16 dollar mikuni clone for a 90cc Polaris two stroke quad to

slap on the Airsal.

Re: expensive but interesting set of tires

that chubby one on the right; bog bog & more bog

is it over 4'' wide?

you would need a lot more torque than a 7 hp moped has to sling that sneaker.

Re: expensive but interesting set of tires

Hopefully that takes normal jets. Mik made about a million varieties and interchange between even what is theoretically the same model # is a dice roll
