I'll try the Conti Road Attack 3 next . I have them on my Yamaha MT-01 and am absolutely happy. One of my friends has them on his MT-09 and says the same  :062:
best regards

I donít really understand the comments about the OEM tires that seems to be the case on EVERY FORUM.  I mean there are people saying the OEM DIABLO ROSSOs suck on the street triple forum. LOL. Really? Tires that people put on R1s for track use? 

To me it is the association with the OEM. Like I said, people will put diablo rossos that are OEM on some triumphs, and rave about them, yet the triumph owners complain.

There is nothing wrong with the OEM Dunlopís. I took my triple on 4 track days on Michelin pilot road 3. People rave about them, for overall being a good tire. yes, good tires for longevity and good grip compromise. But I found the limits on those. Iím 100 sure the OEM on our bikes will be better than those FOR THE TRACK. I will let you know in 2 weeks.

No, you're running that tire at least 8psi too high. Unless you're at max gross vehicle weight.

PS. assuming you're not going to get wrapped around the axle about the only legally permissible pressure is the one that some idiot lawyer and tech writer put in the owners manual...

Word. 34psi rear, 32 front for street.

Remember tyres are personal choice .
Do you cruise?
Do you ride hard?
Do you throw it round the corners?
What is the ambient weather ?
What is the ambient temperature.?
How many miles do you want out of a set of tyres ?
Is the rubber dual compound ?
How much do you want to pay for tyres ?

I can say for certain no one tyre suits all .
The OE tyre is a single compound ďflatĒ profile commuting tyre (as described by Dunlop not me ) . They are not made but Dunlop but made under licence in the Far East . Dunlop donít even recommend this tyre for the bike .
Itís ok as first tyre for running in and cruising .They are cheap . In the UK the tyre is hard and will not warm up . The carcass is hard and has no give making the the hard suspension worse .
This tyre works for some no doubt . But until you have tried other tyres itís difficult to say as you have no direct comparison on the bike .
I wonder how many will change tyres to ďanyĒ other tyre and after having that for some time go back to the Dunlopís .
Thatís the real proof  of these tyres are good or not .

When this tyre was new, it was billed by Dunlop as a supersport tyre, how times change!  Personally, i canít fault the Gpr300 either for grip or ultimate lean angle, having ridden all over the Dales, the Lakes, and the Brecon Beacons in company with several sports 1000s and super nakeds at indecent velocities  :002: BTW, my RS has the full Brocks treatment too, the only one this side of the pond!

I am about to change my OEM tyres after 8000 km and my choice is the new Bridgestone T31

 Just replaced the Dunlops for Michelin Pilot Power 2ct's front and rear .

They don't seem to get much of a mention on here but I believe they have made a huge difference (for the better) compared to the standard tyres .

In the interests of accuracy, Dunlop ceased to trade as a company in 1985.
The name Dunlop is now used under licence by various tyre companies around the world who have paid for the rights to use the name.

The original rear tire was down to 1 mm after 5000 km.
