the tires are the same size, but to be honest i don't really know what the difference is. but the regular pp is what everybody runs anyway and i really doubt the "e" version is different in any way or better than the regular version.

curley444 is right, the "E" is the OEM version. Any slight differences aren't worth $40 IMHO.

Did you find a bangin deal?

www.motorcycle-superstore.com will have specials on them every now and then for about $99 or less w/free shipping. Thats usually when i grab an extra rear.
