If I remember correctly I think this is the 'cat front size, its obviously a typo but apparently the orders are being processed & taking payment online.
Got to be worth a shot imo ponder

Nothing other than a pricing cock up of major proportions I guess? I wonder if they will feel obliged to honour any sales that get paid in full before they realise.

I just ordered and paid for one so they haven't rumbled the mistake yet!

Hope it goes well as the Bridgestone thing makes the bike handle like a pig on roller skates, with a bad Hangover!

Mine got here on Thursday but the arse hats at the DPD delivery people left a "Sorry we missed you" card in a place that I would never had found if a neighbour, who had offered to acceot delivery for me and was refused, hadn't told me! Had to go to Preston to collect it and it looks like a Good 'un!

Thanks for the heads up on this.

Just checked and they're still there at this price. Matching rear is £88.95p, which makes a pair for £108.50p delivered. My guess is that it's old stock as the basic D208 doesn't appear at all in most of the other common sizes.

I've just taken a D208 off the back of my Cat - no complaints about the performance, though mileage wasn't as good as the D207 that was on before. Still got a D207 on the front, with a couple of '000's left on it, but at this price I'm tempted to switch.

I've dealt with this company a couple of times previously and had no problems. In fact I've just ordered a set of steel wheels with Avon winter tyres for my car from them - cheaper than a set of standard Conti tyres alone! But they do charge delivery for those - about £10 each - so as their UK address is not far from me I phoned to see if I can collect. But it turns out that's only an office, not a depot, and the stuff is shipped direct from mainland Europe. In fact, the web address is .pl, and the accent of the voice at the other end sounded more Slavic than German, though they are nominally a German company.

I bought a couple so I have a spare. But don't blame me that they're out of stock, I heard that a few SV650 owners might have been stockpiling. green smile

So if anyone in my neck of the woods needs one urgently I can help.

Sorry to reopen a dead thread but I also ordered one of these a few months back when they were still up for grabs for 20 quid.

My back tyre is pretty worn down now so need to replace it asap.

I am not that knowledgable when it comes to tyres but people have previously told me its best to stick to two of the same tyres.

Based on that would you guys recommend get the rear dunlop d208 sportmax too? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Also does anybody know where i could get hold of a rear one that fits a cat, tried google but havent had all that much luck.
