I see I've commented on this post before but hadn't tried at the time... Well now I have so can give first hand experience

Firstly change from 50 to 55. Unless you really prefer that flatter rear look the 55 makes the bike turn better, handle better and grip on lean better

As for tyres. The rosso 3 are much better than the 2 in cold or wet but in dry I wouldn't say much difference. They feel softer and flex more

I'm currently on a set of M7rr's which I initially thought were the same tyre due to the pirelli/metzeler alliance but I was wrong

They run the same pressures but possibly due to the tread pattern or something else the rosso 3 although a great all round tyre (unlike the crap rosso 2 for comparison) is marginally better in the dry but marginally worse in the wet than the m7rr

I can't comment on wear as I switched bikes before the set wore out but honestly the cold wet grip on these are fantastic

Fitted Rosso III some 1000km ago. Better in the wet than the Rosso II. Also I felt it lasted a lot better in extreme heat conditions on the track than the II's before becoming all squirmy. (46 degree day)

Faster and Faster untill the fear of death subsides.....

Excellent, cheers for the replies. I rarely ride in the wet here in Southern Spain So if they're a better tyre than the Rosso 2's then I'm happy with that as I had no problems with them. If it get's close to the 8-9000km I got from both my Rosso 2 rears then that's good for me.

Does anyone know whether going from a 50 to 55 profile upsets the ecu? In theory if both tyres changed profile (front and rear i mean) it shouldn't upset it... I think

Also considering i never ride in the rain (dont want to get my baby wet!) I'm considering going from rosso II to supercosra SP...

No, it won't "upset the ECU".

Definitely won't upset ecu or tc which is very primitive. Fast road keep it on tc2 maybe 3 at max and have fun

As for dry road, rosso corsa although a little older in design last longer in the middle but grip as good as a supercorsa sp on the sides. You just don't get that lovely soft amazing grip at any angle like the supercorsa in the middle bit
