I feel bad for creating yet another tyre thread but I couldn’t find any that are relevant to me.
The time has come for me to finally get new tyres for my 2014 GSX-R750 and I wanted to know what are people’s experiences and suggestions about brands and models available now.
As some of you probably remember, I crashed my bike at a wheelie school and it’s currently with a mechanic. He’s actually more like a race engineer and knows gixxers inside out as he’s had 4 or 5 of them himself and his recommendation is Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V2. He even suggests going with 180/60 (my bike comes with 180/55 by default) as it’s grippier and has a bigger contact patch. My first reaction when I first saw them was that they wouldn’t be any good in rain seeing how few grooves they have but maybe it’s a wise choise knowing that I’m not commuting on it anymore and only ride in dry weather?
What have you got to say about these Pirelli’s? I know there are plenty of knowledgable and experienced people so any input is appreciated!
