Gdoss So now I’ve tried 3 different front tires and I’m convinced the noise is a not tire issue but a design issue of the front fairing.

But for what it’s worth, of the three, the Bridgestone A41’s, the Michelin Road 5 Trail, and the Dunlop Trailsmart, my preference was the Michelin. Slightly quieter than the other two, due in part I suspect to the thinner tread lines in the center of the tire, and easier to flick the bike around.

enzo5000 The third tire is the Michelin Anakee Adventure.

Welcome to the forum Ryan. Yes, we know that. However it doesn't mean we can't use a street tire if that's what your saying..

Anyway my next experiment will be Rick’s recommendation.
The 120/70-19 front tire is made in France. I've heard the Trailsmart is a very nice tire as well. https://ultimatemotorcycling.com/201...orcycle-tires/
