Anybody using them on the V? How is the grip in wet and dry? How many miles are you getting out of them? Is the front wearing as well as the rear or vica versa? I had these on my ZZR1200 and sold it with nearly 10,000 miles on them with plenty of tread on the rear, fronts were worn out however. Nice feel and stability.
How should I put it nicely...they SUCK. They take quite a bit to warm up, and even when they're finally warmed up the rear slips at times, gradually so you can feel it when is about to step out, but it's not something that I would look forward to
If not warmed up, they'll skip without notice...lol In wet, the rear steps out without trying too hard, I am actually a bit more cautious now because of that. Wear wise, the front should go faster because is a single compound vs two on the rear. I have about 7,000km on them, and I am not a happy camper. Other people with sport bikes swear by the 016, but those are not good for touring
I tried the 021 because of the review of some people, but they don't work for me. I will take them to the dragstrip to practice launching, that will seal their faith
I compared them to my last pair, which was Pilot Road 2. Will go back to them this spring. Those tires never skipped a bit, and got about 17,000km before the rear was done. The front had lots of life left in it, but changed it regardless.
