tire plugs in the front 0.o!!!
And 13k outta the stock tires... the original owner got less than 3.6k outta the stock tires, as i bought the bike with 3.6k with its second set of tires... shinko tires... those tires lasted 2k and were the crappiest tires EVER.
Then i got a nice set of Pilot Road 2's. which were a GREAT tire, good grip and decent wear life. But i do 90% twisty riding so the edges wore out before the center due to the compound layout.... so those tires lasted till 10.1k mi (so 4.5-4.9k miles, front had some life left but it woulda been shortly after so i said fuck it and got a whole new set)
Got a set of pilot power 2ct's and O M F G, talk about a fucking amazing tire. Profile is amazing its much easier to flick the bike around thanks to its steeper profile, and MY GOD THEY STICK LIKE NO TOMORROW! ... never before have i been able to come out of a corner literally dragging peg and knee, then up into a wheelie at 30-40.... the road 2's would of slipped had i been that hard on em... the Power 2Ct's just go, ya umm ok next turn plz.
My next set may be a Bridegstone set... the BT016's look to be the analog to the Pilot Road 2's... and the BT003RS's look to be the analog to the Pilot Power 2cts
