What sport bike tires do you run?

What sport bike tires do you run and why? Just curious cuzz I'm about to put my 2nd rear tire on. I'm running the continental sport attack. I ran the same tires on my last bike with no issues. But the one I put on my current bike,has a very unusual wear pattern. The middle is worn like normal but the middle is cupped in so to speak. Like it was under inflated. But it's not I check it regularly. Probly gonna put another one on cuzz it's due and I like them. (Ran them exclusively on my last bike with great wear results) so any thoughts why the tire would do that? And what do yall run or suggest? Just curious. Thanks all

your rear shock could need servicing



I like the Pirelli Diablo Corsa Front and Rosso 2 rear set up or S20 Front and BT023 rear set up....

Shocks are good. I forgot to mention that. My last tire on the bike was fine except for the 2 emergency plugs I had to put in it. So as quick as I could I put a new tire on it. Thinking it's just the tire. My last 1 was a q2 on this bike

I switched to the pilot roads on my zx10r which I only ride on the street. They last a long time and the grip is great - even for more spirited twisty riding. I used to run the s20 and q3's. Those are phenomenal as well. Just got tired of replacing the rear every 3000 miles.

Bridgestone bt-016 pro hypersport. This is not the same as the bt-016 that comes stock on gsxr's. Have never let me down. I am suprised that more people haven't post Michelins. Everyone I know with them loves them (P3).

Pilot road 3's were awesome I would get pilot road 4s. They were plenty of grip on the street for me, dragged knee here n there on em. S20 q3s and those softer tires never lasted me cause of wheelies

S20s I don't know how you guys aren't getting more miles out of them. I get 6k miles out of a rear on my 600rr. That means 12k out of the front.

I'm a huge fan of the Pilot Roads. Had them on my Streetfighter, then 2010 R1. They are plenty grippy for sporty riding on the street. The pace that it would take to out-ride the traction is plain and simple way past what you should be doing on public roads. Friend of mine put 16,000mi on a set of Road3's on his 08 GSXR1000, and he rides like a crazed hooligan.

Once I started using the Roads, there was almost no point in having my tire changer any more. Once I put them on, I'm usually good until I sell the bike and trade for something else.

I was going to get S20's next since they are the replacement for by-016 pro (as I understand it)

I've always had problems with Michelins chopping the fronts. I changed to the Q3 absolute amazing tire. Great wet or dry. Quick warmup time. But yes mileage sucks I've got between 3 and 5 thousand miles. Or 2-3 track days off a new set.
