pilot pures on a 1000

Who has a set on their 1000 and how do you like them? I'm thinking about buying a set today.

i like them, well at least on the front, i have 2 intermediate trackdays on the front of my r6 and so far it wears like iron, you can hardly tell i rode on it. very predictable and light as well. if your bike gets headshake now it will get worse with this tire on thr front

This is worrisome to me.

Going to need new tires on the Z1000 soon, and was thinking about these. Its finicky as is, though!

May just throw a pilot power on the rear, the one on the front has a good bit of life left in it still.

I run them on several 1000's, and just got another set mounted today.

I have not had the problem with headshake.

Yes, you are correct. Factory dampner.

Well my front tire on it now is so bad that I get a tank slapper if I coast in neutral with no hands on the bars.. no bueno. I ended up buying a continental (i got a great deal on it) to match my rear tire until I get a fresh set.

ive run them on several bikes, got over 6000 miles out of this set. they arent even completely worn out, but i picked up a nail (FML).

they are incredibly light, great rain traction, great cold stick, EXCELLENT hot stick.

on the k7 1k that i have this set on, headshake is inevitable. the only thing i did that helped was putting a stiffer damper on it. (also, it probably has something to do with less caster, shorter wheelbase, etc).

I recommend them to ANYONE AND EVERYONE. 5 stars, 2 thumbs way way up!

"Head shake" is not caused by tires, from what I understand... it's due to suspension and the fact that as you're on the gas the front end lightens up, and when you're pulling on the handlebars (which most street riders do until they learn differently), you will go into that infamous wobble, whether it's minor or severe!

I think it has something to do with both tires and suspension..and how everything is supposed to work properly together.

I know for sure with a blown left fork seal and a good front tire I get minimal headshake, but with that blown fork seal and a bad front tire I get a headshake even if the bike were coasting at 40mph in neutral. lol

I've seen WAY too many bikes go down due to blown fork seals. I, for one, would definitely NOT be riding on a blown fork seal.

Oops. I put almost 10k miles on my bike in the past year.. and I bought the bike with the blown seal (the previous owner had sweat bands wrapped around the bottom of the forks to catch some of the leaking fork oil.

I plan on replacing both forks with racetec internals if I can park my bike long enough to pull the forks off. I'll let you know when that happens
