But I go through them in a few months. The dual compounds on the Pirelli's are medium and soft the compounds on the Pilot Road 2's are hard and medium so they should last longer. I like to lean low real low, and I'm used to the soft compound. How are the Michelins on the twisties? Good? Bad?? looking for input. And also, I use 180/55 17, how many of you guys use 190/50 17 for a rear tire? ,I have the 180/55 2CT on the rear of the Mille now, Pilot Power up front. These are great tires, very confidence inspiring - stable and flickable at the same time. I'm hoping the added longevity of the 2CT will see the rear last as long as the front so I can change them as a pair for once. __________________,,,

What is the best back tire for the bike?


To be honest, you will not get a right answer for this one. It depends on what you are using it for, and how much life you want out of it. The die hard Aprilia guys (like myself---I have an 04' RSV1000) will say that you have to have Pirelli. I run the corsa 3's right now. It has different tread compounds for the sides vs. the center, so that you can get more miles out of it. My buddy who has an 03' like yours runs the Pilot Power 2CTs and he likes them a lot. He runs his in a 180 size, he says it "feels" more nimble. I prefer the larger 190 rear tire on my corsas. If you are going to use it for trackdays, well The Diablos are great. Goodluck with your search.

Tire question


Bluing means the tires were properly brought up to temperature and run. Being street tires, they should be okay for a while but since you had track days, you may have shortened their lives considerably. Did you use tire warmers? Also, Michelins are great and progressive when new, but when they get old, they are not predictable at the limit. They'll grip and then let go without the same level of feedback you'll get from Dunlops or Bridgestones, in my experience. YMMV. I race on Michelin Power Races now but still prefer Dunlops for better feedback.

but im trying to make my money last haha also want to see what you guys think of 180/55 compared to 190/55 -thanks guysSome of the pilot power series are dual compound. Do note that its not a direct tradeoff between grip and tire life. For example an Avon Storms (my favorite) both stick much better and last much longer than a D207. For that matter bits of twine tied around the rim would probably outperform D207's,

Replacement tires on a Beo 200


I am thinking about my bike. Regarding replacement tires my 08 beo 200 has 100/80 (front) and 120/80 (rear). It is still early on in the tire's life cycle (only have 1300 miles) on it. They are the stock Cheng Shin tires. Dont really have anything to compare them against and have ridden in mostly dry conditions and just yesterday during and after a light misting but have no complaints in performance at all. Just looking down the road for when I do have to to replace the tires. I was considering getting tires with a bit more contact patch possibly 110/70 (front) and 130/70 (rear). This would give me more width and with a lower profile would possibly put me at the same diameter as the 80's. The ride will probably be more firm though. I have played around with cars and tires in the past, but two wheel dynamics are different so I am looking for the groups advice or input on the matter,I have been considering options as well for sometime next year. The host site lists a 110/80/16 in the Michelin Gold. Would the rim size on the Beo 200 support a larger size? They also list a Pirelli in 130/80/16 as a replacement for the Beo 200. Can one assume that the rear rim will indeed support a larger tire? I had to lay my scoot on its side once this summer and noticed how fast the front tire broke loose on pavement at slow speed. I was also wondering if a larger front tire would put a bit more rubber on the road, to any advantage. ,,,
