    Hi, I'm having trouble finding a matched pair of tyres for my 07 night train. I don't want to replace them with originals as they're made of concrete. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the welcome Jack, unfortunately I'm on the wetter side of the Atlantic.

    Thanx for the suggestion Brian, unfortunately the 07 Night Train sports a 200 by 17 inch rear not covered by the Venom range. Hence my problem.

    I couldn't agree more Rancid, Metzeler,s certainly stick but they don't do a 200-55-17 which is standard on the 07 Night Train.

    Guess I was wrong in my previous reply. Found a matched pair of sticky Metzeler M880 Marathons to run on. Nice one Rancid.

    Hi T-Bones,I always felt secure on Metzeler's on my Japs just hadn't realised they did 'em that size for harley's. Not familiar with dyna beads, would you explain some more.
    Cheers

    From what i have read from other members the Metzler tyre needs a wee bit more pressure than a stock tyre so best check their website for their recommended tyre pressures for your bike
    Otherwise you may be running a bit soft
