at £130 a pair delivered thats about £60 cheaper than the mainstream brands.

don't want the usual "what's your head worth" comments, just interested in anyone that has experience of them.

Think of them as being called "Cheng Shin" (which is what they are) and then you can maybe decide for yourself.BTW, I'm sure an extra 15-20 quid would get you Continental, Pilot Sport, etc.

I used to despatch on Cheng Shins and I wore through the sides of two pairs of boots consecutively.

Oddly enough my mate was asking about these at the weekend for his zx7r, I avoided posting on this forum 'cos I knew there would be mostly "just buy some Pirellis" replies

My housemate has had them on his Bandit 12 for months in all weathers and thinks they're great.....haven't Maxxis been making Supermoto and Motocross tyres for years with no complaints? I'd say, since the manufacturers started putting Silica in tyres, it's difficult to buy a REALLY bad tyre, just one that's suitable. Iused Contiforce on my Blade during the winter and on one trip to The Nurburgring and a Spa Trackday and was just as fast as my mates on their Rennsports and Super Corsas....although I suspect that's more to do with them than the tyres maybe!! Most tyres these days are more accomplished than the people who are using them ITYF!

I've used them on my old VTR and had no problems with them, lasted as well as the contiforce tyres I had on there as well.  The reason I tried them was price and at £125 fitted (4 years ago) they were absolutely fine. I got 6,000 miles out of the rear tyre on the VTR, 7,500 on the front. I sold the VTR 2 years ago. I've just fitted a Maxxis Supermaxx M6029 (£46.99) to the front of my CBR1000F and after 500 miles it feels secure and stable, braking is fine and steering is accurate. I can't find anything to fault in them.My CBR1000F came with new M100 Michelins which lasted 8,500 on the front, 11,000. After that I fitted an M90 on the front (£39) which lasted only lasted 5,500 but the front wheel bearings being a bit worn (knackered) can't have helped, and when the rear M100 wore out I put a Pilot Road (£50) on which has now done 4,500 miles. I'm hoping that the Maxxis front will last until the rear wears out and then I'll replace them as a pair.    As I do about 9,000 miles a year it won't take me long to find out any problems using the Maxxis on a heavy bike like the CBR. If anyone is interested I will update this thread as my riding is pretty mixed with commuting, weekend runs and Continental touring all thrown in.

I cant access ebay at work, but d and k in newcastle under lyme do some deals on maxxis, getting good reviews aswell.Ray

PB magazine had Guy Martin test some Maxxis tyres a couple of months ago and by all accounts was well impressed

I tested their new range of sports tyres for them before they went into production.Got to say it would be a very good trackday rider to out ride them.They are aimed at the American market and believe it or not the yanks expect 15000 miles out of a rear.

yeah but you know why - its like 5 mile ride to jut get to the corner shop!  Its only since Ive started going there that I realised how huge that place is - its as far from here to boston as it is from boston to San Fran.  Thats feckin' huge, and no wonder mileage is an issue.....Plus most places have 55/65 speed limits so chance of caining it isnt great.  Last time I was there I was followed twice by police for doing 70 in 65........their cars are shit, buy hey they have guns. Oh and a tip - if you go to the US and get pulled - DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR CAR.  I did and cop dived behind his driver door and pointed gun at me.  Almost keked myself.  Rule is apparantly to stay in car...... doh

hey

i have a KTM 525 EXC supermoto and am thinking of setting it up on a pair of these Maxxis supermaxx sports,

im guessing in england we get a lot more crap on the roads. im gonna give these tires a go as when i purchased the bike it came with AVON PRO EXTREME road race wets on it and they are soo soft, im talking like 3500 to a pair. (well.. i say a pair as i dont like replacing one tyre without the other!)

are any of the posts above using them yet? how do you find them?

How on earth did you get 3500 out of a Avon PXR rear Most people I know got under 600 miles in the dry. I had supermoto's for about 4 years or so and the front Avon PXR was pretty much standard for most of the (sadly long gone) supermoto forum lot that were on here. Fronts last 4k plus easy I know some people with over 7k on 'em. On the rear chuck whatever takes your fancy on. On a Motard mixing tyres ain't a big deal I mixed my PXR front with Avon AV50's, Pirelli Diablo's and even a Bridgstone 020 for a while. At the end of the day the PXR front's are the best tyre ever, they stick like a stick and lasts ages (never sure how they did it I guessed lack of weight on the front) so leave it on and just get a sports rear tyre. Avon Distanza's are supposed to be a good mix with the PXR front, just make sure you get the supermoto version not the one for huge BMW tractors. Or if your feeling brave get Maxxis own cut slick for the road At the end of the day though unless you get a touring tyre not much will last more than 3500 on a motard. On my SMC Diablo's lasted 3000 miles max and the AV50 lasted 1400 miles. I think the power pulses just tear them up.

I am a budget rider and have been riding my VTR Firestorm with Dunlop D208's.I have just got 3500 miles out of the back one till I went out for a 10 mile blast and came back to find a thread showing round the middle! I have been reading up on the Maxxis Supermaxx tyres and I was pleased with the overall comments on value for money! Cheap, Sticky and longievity of the tyre! Hopefully these will out last the 3500 miles the Dunlops have done!  Lo and behold I have just ordered a pair today and they will be here tomorrow!Wait for it .................................. £114.00 per pair with FREE delivery! Happy Days 

I have now just bought a pair of Maxxis M6029's for my CBR1000F for £104 delivered from thefastone website I didn't need the front one even though the M6029 already fitted (see previous post 15/10/08) has done 6000 miles. The Rear Pilot Road has now done 10,500 miles and will be ok for another 500, then I'll fit the Maxxis rear (in about 10 days time) . at these prices they've got to be worth a look

have a supermaxx on the rear of my r1 at the moment, had a pair on my gsxr600 srad and a pair on my thundercat, they handle jsut as well as the more expensive tyres,i find they tend to scrub in quicker too.had contis on for all of 4 days before they went, they were dire, just wouldnt grip at all

I considered some of the Maxxis sport touring tyres for £130 delivered off EBay, then saw some of the new Pirelli Angel ST's for £160 delivered so went for them instead.A mate of mine swears by the Maxxis sports tyres though.

I've just fitted Maxxis Supermaxx tyres to my Cbr1000. I took Dunlop 207's off. The Maxxis tyres leave my with a big grin on my face everytime I go for a ride. The Dunlops had a tendancy to tuck under at the front, and were a bit nervous on tight corners. The Maxxis are so much better. I had them on my ZR750 before this one and would reccommend them to anyone.

Iv'e just fitted a pair of Supermaxx to my BMW GS which runs RS wheels hence a 180 rear. After approx 50 miles of scrubbing in i found them to be excellent when tipped over (not been out in the wet yet) & it quickened the steering due to the profile of the front. A real confidence builder which 2 sets of Continentals never did. I got these for £123 delivered next day - cracking price - cracking tyre. Try them, you'll be glad you did!

I bought a Set of these for my Kawasaki ER-6F (Ninja 650R in the USA) about a week ago. Iv had Bridgestone 020's and 021's in my time and struggle to get more than 6000 miles out of them, furthermore they feel very hard on the road and I find them OK in the wet but not great. The new Maxxis Supermaxx tyres so far have wowed me, They were cheap, have the same tread pattern as the new Bridgestones and they actually warm up a bit quicker. More importantly, they perform well in the wet, better than the Battleaxe. If in doubt, go for it. At the end of the day, theyre cheap and good.

Just bought a set of these for my GSX600F. Not done too many miles but so far they feel better than the Bridgestone BT-020's that were on there. From the limited experience to date I'm pretty happy with them.

If you must put Maxxis tyres on go for the sportmaxx.

I have had the maxxis supersport 6029 for 2 years on the rear and it has lasted 6050 touring miles mainly through France and Spain. The centre wore out down to the canvas and the sides were still OK. The demise came suddenly within 10 miles.
I am very careful in the wet so no experience as such but I drive fast on the dry ( road not track) in the mountains and can easily recommend the dry grip. honda vfr800.
Just bought a new pair for £145 delivered.

My girlfriend has a set of maxxis on her bandit 1200 which I have contributed to wearing the rear out (4000 miles). They grip very well, handling great and i always felt confident regardless of speed or angle.

maxxis are NOT chinese They are from South Korea , same as Hyundai, Samsung,LG and Kia and we know they are world beating products ,,,,,,,Maxxis are not crap tyres ,

Just put a set on my Bandit 1200. Changed the whole bike for the better. Very stable, very smooth. Only done steady 30 miles on them so far, but am enjoying the neutral feel and positive steering.

I got 3000 out of the rear Supermaxx Sport on my Sprint ST, very sticky and quick to warm up.

Tested Maxxis Diamond back and rear for 5.000 km in Chilean brand new freeways, no cops, 290 km/hr, they kick A..Metzeler, Pirelli and bridgestone I tryed before them on the same machine and roads, wet, ice, dirt and strong sun, just superb!  

Thread Update ;)

Thread Update ;)

didn't buy these back in 2007 but have just fitted one of these on the back on my old 1200GS (2005) for around 1000 dry miles (it just hasn't rained!). Bike is used for commuting in all weathers. Experience thus far has been fantastic dry weather grip.

Will be back in another 11 years or so with the next update ;)
