Fits the Yamaha Raider
I ordered this tire for my '09 Yamaha Raider and I'm glad I did. Shipping took just a few days which surprised me... great job, DK. The 250 is about as big as you can go on a stock Raider wheel, but this tire fits within the swingarm just fine with no rubbing. Riding two up hasn't caused any rubbing, either.

I have not lowered my bike in the rear, so I can't say that there are any clearance issues... but it's always good to check. If your bike has been lowered, make sure you look at the bolts that come in from the side that hold the rear fender in place... they may need to be trimmed down. Otherwise, just install the tire and ride.

The tire is nice and round on the stock wheel, which seems to help in cornering. The tire feels softer and has more grip than the stock Metz 210 did, and the tread depth is deep.

Overall, it was a great tire at a good price, and I will be buying this tire again when this one eventually wears out.

The tire is big sticky and plush. Great cornering in both dry and wet weather. Price and service was excellent. I'd buy this again

Superior Tire
This tire is far superior to the OEM Dunlop, and a little better than the Dunlop E3, and the Metz Marathon. I have ridden on all four, have an M109, and commute several days a week. Handling and control is second to none. It is very hard to get this tire to break loose. Wear is OK, as I need another at 8,000. But I only got that or less on the other tires, as well. I will purchase again. If this tire is in your sights, pull the trigger. You will not regret it.
