Back in the day I remember some Pirelli rear tire as being 'the' upgrade to produce longer life out of a rear, but have no details on the 'flavor' of the Pirelli.

What's the chosen rear tire (including size) for longevity nowadays?

A colleague who rides a Blast is asking me, and for once I can't answer a Buell question...

Thanks!

Not the MT75. The ST66 is the Pirelli for long life rears.

I have 5k on my MT75, and they are still looking good. Just saying.

The ST66 will double that.

Wow! 5000 miles! I love the MT75, but it's not the mileage tire (except on the front). You've done well with it!

When going to the larger proper tire sizes, any issues with the speedo being off? The sensor is in the transmission, not on the wheel itself...

Not enough to get you a ticket, but it will be off, slightly.

Note - for those interested in great lighting, a unique look, and weight reduction - this fairing when originally designed by a guy in Texas - he charged over 900 bucks - and all he did was rework an Acerbis fairing with a great idea. I told him that was way too much and that the Chinese would copy that puppy in a heart beat, and charge 800 less - actually almost 870 less - he didn't listen and sure enough - voila! - they did - this puppy is way bright - got one for my nephews project bike and I'm letting you know it's out there so you can enjoy a really cool item as well.

Damn thing comes with a fan to keep things cool and that strapping system is easy to cinch up tight using a few ziplock ties. Guys and gals - it doesn't get any cooler than this! Enjoy!
