i've always been a diablo/corsa man, but since my mate bought ten pairs of pilot powers on the cheap and sold me a set, i'v been hooked, they are truly amazing. That said i'v turned my bike into a trackbike so have only tried them on the track, but other friends have said they work just as good on th road. ur not gonna go wrong with either set mate.
My buddy has a set of Michelin Pilots on his sv1000 and they are actually wearing pretty strong. He has about 3000 miles on them now and they still have about 50% tread. We hit the canyons and twisties pretty hard and he has never slipped or felt uncomfortable and his tires have no chicken strips. He is trying to wear them out so he can get some Super Corsas, but they aren't wearing as fast as he thought!
plus, getting rid of the 190 tire for a 180...what a difference!! i am up on the rails now after like 100 miles breaking it in...on the 190 i always had that little 1/4" chicken strip that wouldnt go away. plus it handles so light now.
it is my R6 all over again. for anyone with a literbike rollin a 190...ditch it for a 180, you wont miss it
ROFLMFAO , No doubt , 190's are for choppers, 180's are where it's at ......
I gotta screw in my dun's (stock crap tires) I'm gonna get a set of the pilot powers (front 120/70 , Rear 180/55 on a o5r6 and I figure if there good enought for Rossi YEA! then they'll work just fine for my street ridin' chickin strip ass :twisted:
Aye !!! 3 years on my last bike No flats at all in over 30k miles , and now my new 05r6 is 2 weeks old and only has 850 TOTAL miles and the rear gotta screw in it , FAWK !!!
ps Fix-a-flat sucks !!! don't ever use that crap , it even says not to be used in motorcycle tires , uh I had no choice at the time ........... thank God for my f150 , My bike hauls ass , and my truck hauls bikes LOL !!!
shit dont use that fix a flat shit. It does say dont use on motorcycles. I didn't read it at the time but when i used it on my front tire, my wheels started wobbling like crazy. It was almost as if the stuff dried up hard inside my tires and made it lobbed sided. DOnT USE IT!
