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

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 don´t 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. Didn´t seem to wear that bad either. Recommended!

Fast turning. That´s what I meant. Consistent light feel to the steering no matter what speed you´re going. Sorry, being a swede, I can´t 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
