Looks like its not a simple 40 cash back - its loaded onto a pre paid credit card - not sure I fancy that  :084:
Sometimes you need a really crooked road to get your head straight

So I've got the Metzlers fitted and first impressions are good. Question for anybody with these - what tyre pressures are you running at? The Scorpions were relatively low so are you running the Metzlers the same? Thanks.

Well I'm not exactly a light weight unfortunately but I'm not exactly king Kong either so I may up the pressures on mine. When it stops raining I'll check the pressures the tyre fitters put in.

If you needed to change pressures because of your weight, then Ducati would have put instruction in the handbook re "Load Setting" for Rider / Rider, Luggage / Rider, Pillion and they don't.....

Re: Metzeler Roadtec 01 40 refund offer

Reading the Metzler 40 refund it seems as if you have to use one of their authorised dealers. Any one any experience of this?
The wheels are off and Tuesday I get my roadtec's fitted 300 on or off the bike. Hoping I get a club discount.

For my 2018 MY Mutley it did have two sets of pressures in the owners manual - one for solo riding the other with pillion.  From memory it was 35psi font, 36psi rear solo, and 42psi rear with pillion.

Just had the rear 01 changed at 4500 miles, a little less than I got from the OEM scorpions but it has worn evenly and maintained grip with no white lining.
Think I'll get two fronts to one rear so actually works out cheaper than running scorpions.
Fabulous tyres.
