right now i ride pilot power 2ct tires. i like the way they handle and grip to road on turns. the only problem i have with them is i tear the hell out of the outside edge. i think this is because the tread pattern goes to the outside of the tire. i was starting to look into tires that have a tread only up to within an inch or more to the wall. i was wondering if anyone had any input on the maxxis presa sport tires. i was curious on how they handle on far lean angles.

I still want to know what's wrong with the stock Dunlaps (at least the '08s come with)?

^^^ They are meant to be pretty sweet, mate runs them on his triumph 675.

The batlleaxe tyres that come on Oz 08 R6's have 'slick' edges on them.

Im finding the same problem as you but with the powers. The 2CT have softer compound edges which explains why your chewing it hard.
