YES! How this rumor got started is unclear. (to me anyway) But you can use ANY brand you wish that are the correct sizes. I like Avon's. Others here like the Z6's, and the real Hot Dogs (like DaveM) really like the Pilot Powers. Any of those will transform the handling of your bike over the 020's! We've been there already and most are amazed at how much better their Sprint handles with almost ANY tire other than the 020's on there.
It's the owners manual that strated this rumor. The owners manual states "Use BT020 or Metzler Roadtec Z6 only".
Like I said, unless the ABS is some how pre-programmed for those 2 exact diameter tires and any other diameters (same size tires from different manufacturers can vary quite a bit) screws up the ABS.
I'd hate to be stuck with just 2 tire combos.
I'll see if Triumph NA has other ideas. I already complained about the stupid seat attachment to them.
