Do you just do normal street riding? If so im bout 99% sure that whatever tire your average shop has in stock will do you just fine. If you like the way pirelli's feel, then keep em, and do some research. They have released quite a few new tires lines this year. BTW 600 is WAY to much for 2 tires.

i like the pirelli dc3 for street/track use. Not sure of prices in Houston but should be between 300-350 for a set.

how aggressive are you in the turns? what kind of riding are you doing when you're not commuting? how experienced of a rider are you? and plans on doing trackdays?

350 for a set sounds resonable. I do mostly normal riding, but I do go on SMR and occasionally I do ride it hard so I don't want to limit my self. I'll have to check out the new pirelli lines and find a good middle ground. Since this is my first sportbike I have nothing to compare these tires to, but I've been happy so far, I haven't felt amy slips except if I brake too hard

my experience thus far is a lot of years in the dirt and I had a shadow for the last year to accustom myself to the street before putting this rocket under my lol

I would like to do trackdays and the last time I was on RR I was doing some turns at about 110, I have a looong way to go but I do want to be able to ride hard on my tires

Here's the deal with the daytona. The bikes suspension is set up with a tall tire like the pirelli. The bridgestone is more round than tall in the center so you would need to adjust for rake and trail with a bridgestone bto16. It made me run wide in corners. I suggest you use a pirelli corsa 3 dual compound or the new pirelli diablo rosso corsa. I actually would try the rosso corsa first. $190 rear and about $160 front. Take my word for it. See avatar

I've got a Bridgestone BT-016 front and BT-023 rear. Tracked it at GSS and had bubble gum all the way to the sidewalls on both tires (97 degree high air temperature that day). Scraped my toe on 3090. Your results may vary

i agree FTW! I am not a fast rider, but the harder i pushed them on the track, the stickier they became! Plus, the rear is a 5 compound rear and has a pretty hard compound in the center for daily riding. I have about 3k on mine now and still have at least another 5k left.
