what are the stock tyres of the 09 Speed Triple ? (and 08, 07, if anyone knows ...) Metz M3 maybe?
My 09 came with M3. Not bad tires but gobe after 3K.

tyre question

I have a 2000 s3 with a 190 on the rear. I see Triumph has switched to a 180 and was wondering if fitting a 180 to mine will help or hurt handling?

180 is more nimble, but your bike has a 1/2" wider rim, so putting a 180 on it might flatten the profile a bit.

My '08 came with M3's. I asked the guy why, since the website I saw said they were Pilot Power or whatever, and he said he thought it was changed in the middle of the year for 08.

The M3 is a fantastic tire, IMO
