If you want to know what it costs check out;
Thibault tires

Should come back to http://www.importationsthibault.com and page 664.
The prices that you listed seem to be their list prices. I ordered a GIVI E52 for the back of mine and was quoted the Thibault list price. Shopping around does NO good in what I have found.

They have Pirellis for better prices.

Wheel bearings were priced at a Bearing distributor for approx. $8.50 each.

$70. pirelli

that is less than half the price of stock tires ,are they of simular quality ?I have been getting about 12000k for the rear tire and they appear very good in rainy weather.I do alot of riding in the rain so i need tires that are good on wet roads.Would you say the Pirelli tires are at least as predictable as the battleax.Did you buy them because of the price?Most important would you continue to buy them[are you more than satisfied with them].

Pauljo has Pirellis mounted on his bike and he claims they out perorm the Bridgestones in all categories : price , ride and wear. To me its a no brainer. Even at half the price and you only manage 75% mileage of the OEM's you are still ahead.

I purchased mine due to a reported tire shortage and I jumped at them when they were available. I just passed 15000 kms on the OEM tires.

To add further 'grist to the mill' to this already persuasive logic - Not all tyres are replaced at wear out. It is not uncommon to scrap a tyre with plenty of tread left because of a puncture (size and position). So as long as the tyre is a safe performer (as the Pirelli appears to be) then it is the way to go at that price point.
