To be fitted in August most likely. So sticky, compared to the Bridgestones, I had to put olive oil on my hands before lifting them up.

I'm running a set of these at the moment, they feel better than the original Bridgestones which stepped out a couple of times, with the Metzelers on, no issues at all. The rear will probably need replaced soon, and I'll be sticking with the O1's.

Did you buy them on line? Looking around and various offers etc. Would you mind saying what site you used if so? Cheers Tonybro
Was the service you received good?

I  ran Roadtec 01s on all of my Versys 1000s. They are awesome   :169:

The stickier they are, the faster they wear out. Tyres..... we all have our preferred brand  :039:

i appreciate the comfort, grip, longevity of my RSmart III S. Just installed my second set at 70K km.

Followed your lead Peejay69.  Was going to go for an internet buy although by time id have them fitted would have been dearer than buying from a regional firm to me. Saved £70 on Kawasaki garage price and lead time 7 - 10 days to fit.
Hopefully the good weather will hold and i can get them broken in.  :763:

I got mine in now, along with my oil change kit, so I have all the yearly maintenance hardware in stock rather than waiting until mid Summer. I thought stock might run low now lock down is ending and didnít want to chance going without.
