Hi Folks, my bike came with a TT100 on the back and K825A on the front. I've got some now roadriders II but I just wanted to check the age. of the old ones.

I am not sure how to read these date codes .

As I understand it this is not the date code. Is that correct?

And this indicates week 21 of 1996?

and this one in week 8 1995

Do I have this right?

Thanks

Great! Even the tyres are classic ;-) They do still seem to hold air well.

Will be changing those over the weekend!

I assume that the code changed to 4 digits at the turn of the century. I just replaced the rear on my T150, good looking tire but it was 20 years old.
100/90 Road Rider is probably closer to the 4.10 K81 which would have come on the bike anyway.
