Iím a tire *****. Iíll spend more for the best feel and performance, and/or longevity. And the PR4GT and 5GT are both the best feeling, and longest lasting tires Iíve run in 100,000 miles on FJRís. And that is just my personal opinion/experience.

Iíve worn out a set of 5GTís super fast. In full covid national stay-at-home mode, we ran the deserted mountain roads relentlessly. But I digress.

Later, if you haven’t it would be worth your time to remove & clean/lube the brake pedal as mother Yamaha really didn’t do a great jog there and a sticking pedal will do as you described although it sounds like you have it fixed. But it is time well spent.

It would also be a good winter maintenance item(s) to clean & lube the clutch pivot and bushing along with the abs wheel sensors front & back, save some grief later.

Also it would help to add your bike model/year to your signature line. Glad you have it fixed.

Solid advice, and I will definitely take care of those items. I also took your advice and put my toys in my signature. Thanks!
