I"m currently running Dunlop D207rr"s and it feels twichy at speed through the turns.
I was thinking of trying Bridgestone 010"s would this calm things down?? or any othier ideas????

I like the michelin Pilot myself I have run the Dunlops but front always cups and they take to long to warm up:D

What do you mean by the front cups? :rolleyes:

The Dunlop always chops up(uneven wear) or at least mine always did. Maybe it is from doing to many wheelies.

Havent tried the 010's yet,but the pilots seem to warm up quicker for me than the 207s. Are you running a 190 or 180? I did get to try the Dunlop 208 or 207 star whichever you want to call it and those rocked:rock

Man accidental slides are definitely :eek: but when it is done on purpose:rock I like running the 180 it turns in alot quicker,IMO

Well, if she makes you wear one I guess it would be a ribbed one. Turn it inside out though. Who cares about "her" pleasure. ;)

I've got Bt010's on my R1 now (second set) Love them tons better than the stock D207's. Warm up well, loads of feedback for a road tire, turn in well and stable once banked over. They wear well too so they'll last you.

Pirelli Supercorsa or Metzeler Rennsport!!!!!
Tried Michelion Pilot and Dunlop 207 and they work well if you donīt take them to the edge.
Bought some Pirelle Supercorsa at the track, they had gone about 10 min in Supersport 600 -training. Cost me about 100 $ for a rear tire and then gives me about 2 - 3 trackdays. Sticks like glue!!!!
This is my experience anyway!!!!

I had Pirelli Dragon Evo Supercorsa on my old blue R1, and they were the best tires I ever tried. Wobbly-wobbly steering (good, not bad) and plenty of grip. Didnīt seem to wear that bad either. Recommended!

What do you mean by wobbly steering...........good not bad ?:confused:

Fast turning. Thatīs what I meant. Consistent light feel to the steering no matter what speed youīre going. Sorry, being a swede, I canīt explain it better...

I use Pirelli Supercorsa tires, they are excellent and grip very well in the wet and dry. I have no experience at the track, so i cannot give you my opinion on these tires taken to their extreme. I used to have dunlop 207's originally on the r1, but changed them because they seemed to slip a bit, could have been my imagination. Plus i really like the name PIRELLI!!!

For a street tire I like my Bt010's better than the pilot sports I had and about a metric ton (that's a sh!tload in english units) better than the stock D207's
