Anyone out there have experience of the new Michelin Pilot Activ tyres on the CB500 as an alternative to BT45's I heard from one guy who raved about their performance but that is hardly definitive????.

Welcome to the forum Roger.

I've not heard of anyone with those on yet.

I got these for mine. They transformed the ride and feel of the bike and seem to be wearing well, albeit only about 2,000 miles in.

Thanks for the replies guys, have been doing a bit more research, I only need a new front so will probably stick with BT45's, mixing tyres would seem dodgy and the BT45 seems to be very well thought of.

All probably true.

Personally if I could get a (cheapish) front I probably wouldn't worry about mixing too much, but then I'm no Valentino Rossi.
