The difference is all for tires?

Really hard to say...
Tests were done with very different weather conditions, much colder for Pirelli test. Besides, as you know, both Matt and Luca couldn't do their best: Matt was ill even though he still tried to do some work as well, Luca suffered an engine break down with the bike where some (but not all) SBK modification has already been done. He could try just the STK configuration, crashed after 4 laps and this was his 1st time in Daytona, so I think no one can really understand what actual limit was for both of them (and bike/tyres as well).
I think that only after next tests we will understand something more.

ben spies is at one with his susuki , the dude is pretty quick on it now no matter what the weather is .

in my call , pirelli is about 3 yrs behind dunlop still in super sport tires an about 5 yrs behind in slicks . but being the under dog an winning on weaker tires is about the best way to get ahead , an sure does feel good .

So - what are people's preferences for tyres? My brut came with Pirelli Dragon Supercorsa Pros - which surprised me a little because I thought they came standard with Michelin Power Races. I don't have an opinion yet - I've only had the bike for just over a week, but I'd be interested in what others think because I think I'll be wearing them out pretty quickly! :)

Well... I used several times Dunlop 207RR and 208RR on Kawa 636 '03, Suzuki SV650 '02, Yamaha R6 '03 and Dunlop D218 on Yamaha R1 '05, both street and track. I had a good feeling with 207RR on my 636 but never got enthusiastic about 208RR and D218. Pirelli SC pro where standard supply on my F4 and I really enjoyed them very much on track and I think on street are the best tyre I've ever used but this is the first time I have Pirelli sport tyres on a bike of mine. The only other Pirelli I used where Dragon GTS on a Suzuki GSX600F and they were really cool for long rides in couple but not so performing for anything else. I tried Michelin sport pilot once and I think only Metzler MZ4 could be worse, but worst of all the michelin macadam i got with GSX-F when purchased!
I like Metzler M1 very much for mixed track/street use (BTW Metzler is another Pirelli brand, former independent German brand), they are now on the R1, and Metzler Z6 for touring (now on our Suzuki SV1000), and on the F4 I think I will put Pirelli SC again.
Anyway I really think that a great part of like - dislike is only personal feeling due to our personal riding style, just a few of us IMHO can really feel the technical differences between them, those who are pilots and not bikers. :)
