Default Tires, Chain & Sprocket...???

Hey everyone, im coming to the point where im going to need new tire's soon. I think im going to go with the Pilot Power 2 CT's, unless you guys think I should do different ones. I ride in south FL on the very straight, flat,.....boring roads so if you guys think im spending more than I need to please give me suggestions on other tires. Also my chain is getting to the stretched limit so I might as well replace that and the sprockets when I do the tire.

What has it cost you guys to do tires, chain and sprockets in a shop? I could probably do the sprockets myself but i dont have a garage right now so I might as well get it done when I do the tires.

Also if any of you guys know of a good place to get this done here in south Fl, please let me know. really the only two places I know of in the area are Riva Motorsports in Pompano Beach, and Rick Case Powerhouse in I think Weston. Both are dealers so I know they are going to be more expensive.

Thanks for any help you guys can give me!

I'd go with the Pilot Road 2's for the rising you're describing.

I agree. The PR2 or the Bridgestone BT-021 are my suggestions. I've had the BT-021s for little over a month now and they've been great. Plus, they were a bit cheaper than the PR2's.

Shinko's if ya want something cheap, especially if you don't hit the twisties a lot. Got my set for $160 off http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/

I got the 009's so they last a long time for the long highway rides i take.
