Having read the 04 road tests,i haven"t noticed any mention of the tyres, i think they are leaving the showrooms with DUNLOP D 218"s,are they good or are you guys gonna be fitting the usual stuff ??

This isn't from an owner, but MikeE from 2wf writes:
must throw out a good word too for the Dunny 218's fitted to this bike. The initial morning ride saw some rather chilly weather and the tires gripped well from cold with just a minimal amount of wheelspin (when getting hard on the throttle.) Once warm they stuck like glue and balled up like a GP spec tire. I’m not sure about longevity, but if fast Sunday blitzes’ are your thing these are the tires to keep you safe.
