Last year I had a new set of pilot power 2ct’s put on my Gsxr600k5 for a trackday at Brands, tyres worked well and after the day everything was fine until Michelin issued a worldwide recall on the front tyres as the compound was breaking up.
Universal tyres fitted a brand new 2CT front at no charge and everything seemed ok, however last week I took the bike out for its first blast on fast open roads and at speeds of 80 to 1?? I get a nasty judder/vibration which destabalises the bike.
It’s not enough to throw you into a tank slapper, however you would not feel comfortable/safe taking a high speed corner with your knee down.Even in a straight line the bike judders badly at speed.
Do you think Michelin/universal should have replaced both tyres for free to ensure even wear on the tyres or are they right to only replace the faulty front which has left me with a scary gixxer at speed?
Any advice would be welcome, before I end up buying a new rear out of my hard earned cash
