New Tires on the 1090RR!

I finally mounted up a new set of Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa's after waiting a month for them on back order. My little guy helped me install them. He LOVES my bike and loves going for rides on the back.
I've got about 40 miles on them and man do I love the grip! I pretty much only ride the same Industrial Park by my house that has tons of GREAT turns and super grippy asphalt. Every time I buy new tires I consider changing it up to a cheaper tire, but I cannot bring myself to go away from a tire that just grips sooooooo good. I'd hate myself if I were to crash because I wanted to save $100 on tires.

Totally agree with the choice. I have them on my Fireblade SP2 and will fit them to my other bikes when required. Word is though, that they're useless in the wet. I can't comment because most of my bikes are dry weather rides.

Metzler Sportec M7 RR gets good recommendations for both wet and dry. (Highly personal choices we're talking here)

I cannot comment on the wet traction either, I never ride in the wet. I will say that i'm definitely a fair weather rider though. If I cannot go out and push the limits in the turns or ride wheelies at will, I don't even bother taking the bike out LOL.
I have heard good things about the Metzlers too. I also considered the new Dunlop Q4s. They are suppsed to be excellent too. They are described as a track day tire for use without tire warmers.

Great tires. I just put a set of Diablo Rosso 3's on my 1090RR and have been extremely happy with them.

I've ridden with pirelli diablo supercorsa sp v2's and they are a great tire for what you do if you can get heat in them. So, not so good in the cold or rain.

Have also ridden Metzler m7rr, diablo rosso corsa and dunlop q3.

Now I use Michelin Power RS and they are my new favorite street tire. New technology and work well with the F3 chassis. They work well in low temps and on the street they have not gotten greasy on me. I really don't have a negative for them and really don't care about wet weather grip. I was considering the Michelin Power Cup Evo for the summer but the Power RS looks like it is still in its temp range for my riding. I ride dry weather twisty and technical roads.

My two high recommended tires ar the supercorsa sp v2 and the michelin power rs

Im still running Supercorsa SPs as the bike came on them, usually fit a set per year for the mileage I do on dry days on the MV. I have another bike I ride when the weather is not so good

cheers

My vote goes to Michelin PR5. I have had experience changing up from Metzlers to PR4s on my R11S and it was a day & night feeling. My Brutale has Dunlop Q3+ which I am definitely not a fan of. As soon as they are ready to go, the bike will get Michelins.

Yep, this is similar situation to what Maximum Velocity and I were discussing within the 'Why MV Agusta thread'.

This particular post might best have been placed in the 'What did you do to your bike today' thread. In sorts, it was a slight recommendation, and then some wise guy () jumped in and also recommended Super Corsas and off we went!! (Perhaps we're just relieving frustrations of the posting difficulties over the past fortnight.)
