I ran Metzler Feel Free tires on both the front and back of my 06 400 with good results but did not find them to be any better than other brands with the exception of Shinkos. The Shinkos I tried on the 400 were a disappointment.
I also ran a Metzler Feel Free on the back of my 07 650. On that bike it had a couple of characteristics I was less than thrilled with so don't plan to repeat using them on it.
Put on a set of Metzler Feelfree tires at 15K miles on my '07 400. At 20K no problems, seem to be wearing quite well. Never had an issue with the OEM Bridgestone Hoops, either, but these seem to be wearing a bit better.
I've had a set of Metzeler Feel Free tires for about 2,000 miles. They ride smoother than the OEM Bridgestones, but the front exhibits a growl any time it's turned. At first, I thought I had bad wheel bearings, but it's just the tread design causing the noise. Wear so far seems good but it's too early to tell for sure.
