Re: BT-16's or Q2's and why?

Oh god. I have those on my bike right now for the time being, just so I can ride it off the track. I can't stand the front tire profile. Was going to take the 6 to barber this past weekend but instead took the cbr just because I didn't want to deal with the Pures on the track. Ordered Q2's for the 6 though last night, can't wait

Re: BT-16's or Q2's and why?

great info guys, If i can get the Q2's for the $180 price tag i found recently i think that is the way im going. I really wanted to try the newer bt-16's tho, but maybe its time to step up to the 20's soon .

Re: BT-16's or Q2's and why?

The 20's are a fantastic tire IMO, especially for longevity. I've got 1k street miles, an intermediate track day at Road Atlanta, and an intermediate track day at Barber Motorsports Park on the S20's, all on the 1000rr, and the tires still have plenty of life left, I'll see if I can't throw up a pic of what they look like now.

edit: got some from saturday. I'm back at school now and the bike is home, so I can't get any more angles till the weekend. But again, that's after two track days and 1k street miles. On the street I ride 33F 32R and on the track 31/30

LMFAO and the S20's are so much different in profile. I'd hardly consider them aggressive as far as the cone and profile goes.

But tires are like hoes. Everyone loves one more than the next

Yeah the S20s aren't too aggressive I agree, mellow profile, which is why I'm excited to get some Q2s again. The 20s are a great street tire though

Re: BT-16's or Q2's and why?

Wasn't too impressed with the Q2 as far as life and grip. I would pick a Pilot Power 2 CT for daily riding. Pures actually have pretty decent life. But to get back on subject, I would ride the BT-16 before I ever put a Q2 on anything again.
