Plugged a lot of tires in my life with no issues, but these I just can't get them to quit leaking air around the plugs for some reason.

I've had good luck with the Stop & Go system, but have not tried on a PR4.

I've had better luck with the "sticky rope" plugs from Napa and they're cheap.

While the MPR3 is discontinued, I would go with the Bridgestone T30 Evo or the Metzeler Z8:

Both are available in OEM sizes or 120 front and 160 rear.

Bought replacement Pilot Road 3 for rear two weeks ago (had nail in tire). Front still had another 1000mi left on it, but decided to check online inventories. OMG. Could only find 1 Pilot Road 3 110/80-18 front tire (was on Amazon), so I ordered it. So now I should be ok for the next year, which gives our forum leaders/gurus time to figure what my next brand/size will be.

Looked in my Honda Owners Manual for tire recommendations for the 2017 CB1100 CA (EX) and CB1100 NA (RS) models.

The recommended EX tire is the Dunlop 205 which is the Sportmax Touring tires that are on the bike. Unfortunately I have not found a source for them in North America. Road tires with tubes are passe. Apparently these are radial tires with radial tubes.

The Dunlop Motorcycle Tire representative in Dayton, Ohio that I spoke to is looking into it for me. The person in the Parts Department of my Powersports Canada dealer found radial tubes, but no tires. He thinks that the only source may be Honda Canada.

The recommended RS tubeless radial tires are Bridgestone Battlax, Dunlop Touring T30, Dunlop Road Smart III. As you are aware these are readily available.

One of the reasons I'd go for the 2017 RS is the tubeless tyres.

Has anyone tried the 110/80 - 160/60 combo in other tires? The Pirelli Angel GT and the Continental Road Attack 3's can be had in those sizes? It sounds like clearance on the rear with this combo is ok?

I've had some poor performance with cupping on the PR3 front on another bike. I had the PR4s (not available in the correct size) on a 2012 Connie and loved them.

Thought this size comparison was a nice overall view of the two.

Forum member, Pterodactyl—who no longer posts—has had 2 or 3 sets of Angel GTs and prefers them to the PR3s. Indeed I once had a long ride one afternoon somewhere out the back of beyond to get him a new one.
