As long as the size and load range is compatable, you shouldnt have a problem. With them being "Sport Touring", they will probably grip great, but wont last as long. Had Continental Milestones? on my 800 for awhile, the back tire was done in 4 months with about 5,000 miles on it, but it road and handled good. Since I ride 15-20,000 a year, they were not acceptable for me, and thats on a lighter bike.
