Yamaha XSR900 Parts > Tire Recommendations
Tires are one of the most important mods you can do to your bike. The Yamaha XSR900 and MT-09 come with descent tires from the factory, but they will never offer the performance of some of the better sport bike and sport touring tires on the market. We replaced our tires right away with something that would offer superior grip to the OEM tires. These bikes have a lot of power, especially when modded, and we wanted the stickiest tires we could get on our XSR900 project bike. We're currently running Dunlop Q3 Plus's and couldn't be happier with that tire choice. We use that tire on several bikes here at the shop and it's one of our favorites. Listed below are some of the tires we'd recommend for your XSR900 or MT-09...
