i'd go with michelin man. pilot powers are great tires. night and day to me compared to the stock battle axes that came on my bike stock. what is your riding style? if you're a canyon carver i'd say go with high quality like pilot power, diablo corsa, m3s, etc. there are a few to choose from. it really depends on you bro!

Can't beat Pirelli or Metzlers for the street. Even for track days they rock. If you absolutley have to have that last tenth of a second nothing beats the Pilot Powers...

I just got Pirelli Diablo tires on mine. You need to warm them up for a bit before you start taking hard turn but once you do, they rock!:crazyloco

+1 on the Pirelli Diablo's. Alread got em, they are just waiting to be mounted. Did my homework before I got them so I know what to expect. Excellent tires!

i would go with the metzlers first since i know ppl on the track who love those things and praise them if its out of your price range.. for a few dollars less i would go with the pilot powers...and thats bout it...!!

I've ridden on BT's, dunlops, and just switched over to Mich. Pilot Powers as everyone was swearing by them.

Wow, do they hook up, and quick. Don't have many miles on them, and the cold pavement (winter) is fast approaching. Yet these tires still grab and pull.

Just my $.02
