I have a 2006 burgman 400. I need to get new tires. Any suggestions? Also what size do I look for when I am looking at tires online?

The front tire is a 110/90-13. The rear tire is a 130/70-13.

I've had good luck with the OEM Bridgestone Hoop tires, the Michelin Power Sure tires, and the Metzler Feelfree tires on my 06 400. I was disappointed with the Shinko tires I tried on it.

What you are hearing is firm advice to buy the same size tires that the bike came with. Not much else fits and like any other vehicle made these days, off size tires will either not fit at all or they will throw off the computer. You can try several different companies but you really should just use what it came with. Spend your extra money on some other farkle than tires or performance goodies. My next big expenditure: turning my dark gray Burgie into a three-toned orange, red, and yellow fireball.

I have an 03 and have been through two front tires and 5 back tires.
Here's the whole scoop - viewtopic.php?f=3&t=53062&p=557229#p557229
Personally, unless a better tire comes along I'll be sticking with the Michelin Pure Powers or the City Grips. I got decent mileage out of the CGs and the PP are suppose to be better. Motorcycle Superstore probably has the best price and it's free shipping (although check Chaparral - they do better on my MC tires). I use dynabeads to balance and get a local tire shop to change them for $7 a piece.
Good Luck!
Just to add, tires tend to disappear quicker in the South. Might have something to do with the heat!
