Isn't THIS special! The owner's manual on page 7-21 states that the ONLY tires approved for this scooter are the Dunlop Scootsmart tires in the models 120/70-15 M/C 56P (front) and 140/70-14 M/C 62P (rear). Here's the problem: That rear tire is no longer listed on Dunlop's website!! So how the **** am I supposed to get "the only tire approved by Yamaha" if it isn't being made anymore???

Damn, not only is that rear tire NOT available from Dunlop, but even though Metzeler Feelfrees and Pirelli Rosso still makes a tire in the right size, they're on backorder. Ended up ordering a set of Pirelli Angel tires because they were the only ones I could find in the right sizes and both tires were available.

Why the run on 140/70-14 tires???

New tires mounted and so far, so good. Getting that rear wheel off was an adventure till we found a "How-To" video on YouTube. The owner's manual had NOTHING on wheel removal...
