What tires to get

Riding an 05 1000RR, it usualy gets ridin on the weekend and forest ride. I have come to the point where I think I have about 1-3 rides left on them, I need to start thinking about new tires. Any help is appreciated.

Which BT/002? R/S or Race?

PM Hooligan, Cdill35 or MaxGs all have used them and will give you a good rundown.


Depending on what kind of riding you are doing, I would suggest Powers, 2ct's, or a Pilot Road 2ct. I am going to get a Road 2ct next tire. I will be riding the 1 on the street only and like the idea of getting 7k out of a rear as opposed to the 1500-2k I am getting out of 2ct's or powers.

The Pilot Road should be enough tire for just about any street riding. Unless you are taking your bike to the track they will be all you need. I have the regular 2cts on my bike right now and they are great, but I have also done a trackday on them. It is my second 2ct (reg).

theyre dual compound. hard in the middle for daily commuting, soft on the outside for cornering. ive been to the forest countless times, rode lime creek rd in austin and did a track day on them. all on one set.

Good tire for the price. They do wear pretty quick though. PM KawiJim, he can hook you up with a set for sure! Also, Hooligan and Cdill have used them at the track with success. Hooligan has recently moved up to the BT003's I believe, cuz he was beginning to outride the R/S's
