dunlop tires on the 1000R..

just got a 1000r for Christmas, the bike came with dunlop tires,(GP Racer M) i was expecting pirelli tires but got dunlops. Are theses tires any good as far as grip and wear. Do you how much these are new. I've always ran bridgestone on my ducati and love them.

What a nice christmas present! I don't know much about the Dunlops, sorry can't help, but congrats and wish you 1 million happy miles.

Edit** I just saw your other message... you mention you got the bike brand new. I have always thought the 1000R comes with Pirelli Dragon SuperCorsa as stock... I wonder why is there Dunlop on it?

The street tires designed by all of the major tire manufacturers are more than up to the task of all but the most aggressive of street riders. If you want wear, you'll have to switch to touring tires, which would probably still be grippy enough for most riders. The F4 isn't a touring bike, so I'll stick with the sticky stuff.

The bikes can come with several options for tires depending on the batch, the Dunlops are on quite a few F4R's.

My R came with Dunlop racers. Unfortunately the rear suffered a puncture and was soon replaced by a Michelin pilot power.

The front does seem to be wearing very well for a Dunlop. Although the Michelin will be replacing this tyre when its worn.

I've never used Dunlops personally, but a mate of mine use to swear by them.

The fronts scollop out badly and as a result the bike tends to tip quicker into corners, not good when you dont mean to tip in fast.
