look out for that dickhead in front of you!
Thanks for the feedback. Have you tried the power 5?I like the Cups. Great compound, gets up to temp quickly and stays there. Consistent and great feedback.
95% of my riding is track oriented.
I find that the RS tire doesn’t provide any feedback before it let’s go. You’re riding and everything seems fine then you push 1% harder and push the front out of no where.
If you had to twist my arm for another Brand street tire it would be a Dunlop Q4 hands down.
no I haven’t tried those but it isn’t really in my wheel house ya know?Thanks for the feedback. Have you tried the power 5?

What tyres are you going to run? I run sports touring pretty much. I never run something soft like a Supercorsa or K3 Metzeller. I'll mince that sh1t in 1 or 2 rides on a hot day. No thanks. I prefer to get some mileage out of the tyre. Besides, I can run rings around idiots on the street on a set of knobbies on a R1200GS so really, this soft sh1t is not needed. For track yes. If you got money to burn go for it. But I need a tyre that's going to handle 800km days x 4 and not be on the belts when I get home. I've played that game before running soft stuff. Day 1 its 50%. Day 2 its on belts. Still got 2 days left!Am I going to be shunned for putting sport touring tires on mine after OEMs are worn 😬
Couldn't agree more. I plan on running Pirelli Angel GT 2s as I've had the originals and loved them. Good balance between grip/confidence and mileage. Granted I was on a smaller bike but I could take those down to the very edge with complete confidence. I ride on the street and I'm not looking to take a minute off a "lap" off nasho. Just looking to be able to hop on and ride anywhere in any condition without thinking about tyre pressure/temps and when my next tire change is AND still have fun. Sport touring tires have served me very well for that purpose.What tyres are you going to run? I run sports touring pretty much. I never run something soft like a Supercorsa or K3 Metzeller.
I agree, I like these tires and never been a fan of Michellin. I do have a brand new set of Pirelli Rosso Corsa 2 sitting in the garage when these are used up though.I actually have never really ridden on Michellin tyres that much. I have to say though that these tyres have been great in the 600kms I have used them. No grip issues at all. Rear seems to slip a bit in Dynamic mode under hard acceleration on a warm day but that's kind of normal. So far I don't mind them. I won't be ditching any tyre the bike comes with anyway. I'll use them up and then put my Continental Sport Attack 4's on.
I've run all the Metzler "M"'s for years, the last one being the M7. How do you like the M9's? How do they compare to the M7's? From the reviews, the 9's are pretty much better in every way, like I felt the 7's were over the 5's.Nope, not everyone is a track day hero! I'm running M9RR at the moment, good tyre so far, heaps of km and good grip

yes better in every way, grip wet or dry, warm up quick, and look to be racking up the km no worries.I've run all the Metzler "M"'s for years, the last one being the M7. How do you like the M9's?

First thing I did when I got mine and the rear sets was put loctite on haha! Glad I didDay 2. Muffler bolt fell out somewhere on a ride lol. Didn't think I needed to loctite that one. Clearly I did. Dash is cutting out as well. Did it 3 or 4 times today. Cold start pops have arrived also.
