919 Tire choice

My 919 wore out the rear original Bridgestones BT56's 10,500 Km. I replaced it with a Bridgestones BT14's and now it is done at 6000 Km. What tire do you guys recommend for this bike? and where is a good place to buy tires in the US, on line.

That really depends on the type of riding you want to do...... long range touring? riding to work? hitting the twisties with a set of stickies?

Personally --- I like to ride on the sportier edge of things. Have REALLY been liking the new Bridgestones, and they can be purchased cheaply. In the past... have also had great luck with the dual compound Pirelli's.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For sticky track-days, hard street twisties riding..... Bridgestone BT-003RS. (The STREET version)

For normal riding w/ weekend blasts thrown in...... BT-016's.

For longer wear with sport thrown in..... BT-021's.

And if you want to ride across the US ---- you'd need an entirely different tire altogether.

I've also done combinations of these tires..... my next set for the 919 will probably be a longer wearing BT-021 rear, with a stickier BT-16 front.

I've been super happy with my Michelin Pilot Roads. They've got 9000+ miles on them but they're now at the wear bars. I'll probably order a new set somewhere and have my dealer put them on when I go in for inspection this month. But now I need to choose between the Pilot Road and Pilot Road 2, if any one else has thoughts either way I'd love to hear them.

I ran Pilot Road 2s for right at a year and nearly 10,000 miles. They still have a little life left on them and are sitting in my garage. I only swapped out because I found a smoking deal on Pilot Powers and bought a set from JakeWilson.com

I checked their pricing again last week and it looks like they have gone up $10 or $20 since I got mine. I bought them at about $158 shipped. Now they are about $170 shipped. Still a good deal considering my Pilot Road 2s cost me $290.

In my opinion, the Pilot Power tires are good but don't last very long (maybe 5,000 miles) The Pilot Road 2 is sticky on the sides like a Pilot Power, but harder in the middle and will last a while (10,000+ miles). Mileage is my personal experience. If you are trying to wheelie and power slide every corner, they are going to disappear fast.

Press Any Key To Continue.

I had PP 2CT's put on with my new wheels and they are 1000000% better than the Hi Sports. I am hoping they last a little longer than the regular PP's but I have no idea how they compare to Pilot Road 2's. I have never seen anything bad about the Pilot Roads or Road 2's. I don't see too much about my Pilot Power 2CT's but I am not really looking, I love them.

Conti Road Attacks are well regarded by people that have them

BT021's are also highly regarded

Jake Wilson has been practically giving tires away for months now. I got mine from Cyclegear last season. JW has front and rear for $201 shipped right now. Cycle gear is a bit more.

I'm going with the PR2, but at Jake Wilson there are two for the 919. A 180/55ZR 17B; $179 and a 180/55ZR 17; $152. The B is for two up riding (I call them today). So my question out there is, this "B", has anyone used this tyre?

I am going to have to also put in a plug for the Power Road 2's. I Just put on a set 2 weeks ago, and the performance on dry and wet roads is excellent. I just hope they wear well and last for a decent amount of mileage.

I tried the new Dunlop Sportmax Q2 this year, and while I'm no racer I have to say it totally transformed my bike and my confidence in it. The difference has been noticed by a few buddies that I let take it for a spin and they like the tires too. They have great grip in any condition from wet to dry or slippery, and I notice no visible wear at 1000miles. Frikken things stick like glue, have multiple tread compound for long life, AND change the handling of the bike in a very good way....

I have a tendency to try things that others don't, and with so many going with the same old tires instead of checking out new technology....well.....I'm glad I did

I use the Pilot road 2. Good wear, good grip, I've never had the rear spin on me. Not saying it wont, but I don't really ride that hard... Never felt a slide on the dragon running them.

Bout my pr2s from a stealership. 270.00. but it was last minute. i'll plan better in the future.

other than being squidgy on the tar snakes, I LOVE this tire. really planted. like it more than the powers and hi sports that came on the bike. and no break in. no chicken grease to wear off!

Just replaced my front Sport Attack for a Road Attack . The difference is utterly amazing, the Road Attack just does everything SO MUCH better. Ride-ability, cornering, braking hell even pushing it around the garage. On a side note the Sport Attack did have an irreparable hole in it that might have biased my opinion just a tad.

Finally got to Ride

I'll say that the Bridgestone BT016's are pretty terrific so far.

No idea on longevity, but they're knee-dragging approved.

I've heard that Michelin Pilot 2s were good, but 9 to 10,000 miles??? You guys must be talking about the front tire only. Or perhaps roads where you live are a lot smoother than here in the St. Louis area.

I commute between 80 and 180 miles a day depending on if I take the highway or the back roads to work. I also do the occasional Saturday in the twisties riding aggressively. I think I ride a good mix of different kinds of roads and typically I'll ride around 2000 miles a month, so longevity is very important to me in a tire.

I was able to get 5,000 miles out of an Avon Storm rear tire before the wear marks were clearly visible. Using Pirelli Diablos I would get about 3500 miles out of the rear before hitting wear marks. I pushed it to about 4,500 once, but there was significant cord showing on that one. I loved the Diablos, great grip. I got 6,000 miles out of the rear on the new Pirelli Angel STs. They are my favorite so far. I thinkt the Diablos still give better grip, but for longevity plus grip I'd say the Angel STs are the way to go. I have not tried the Michelin road pilot 2s. I hear they are really good, but I would be surprised if they do much better than the Avon Storms since they both use a duel compound.

For front tire mileage I get almost double that of the rear tire. I do ride agressively, but not crazy fast. There's a lot of grooved concrete highways here that I suspect wears the tires faster than smooth asphault.

I may give the road pilots a chance after my current Angel STs wear out.

I just put on a set of the new Bridgestone BT-023's last month and am happy with them so far. I ride on both short "spirited" rides and long weekend trips so I went with the sport-touring tire. They seem pretty sticky in the twisties so far. I'll have to see how they hold up as far as mileage goes. Got them for about $240 w/ free shipping from MotorcycleSuperstore.com. Dealer charged me $40 to mount & balance.

OOPS..... as i was saying, I got mine from Ross at K-tech for a very reasonable price and service was quick. Also I have a pair of Yosh slip ons I am not using, and Ihave an undertail from freestreetdesign that I wont be installing. I live out in the Collins Bay area and will sell them for a very reasonable price if you are interested.

Don't recall what I paid for the front, but the rear was $190 after tax and $5 for new valve stem and disposal of old tire.

Kind of pricey, but the mileage makes them worthwhile for me.
