My bike came with dunlop qualifier rr's and I replaced them when they were done with the new sportsmart and I have been impressed by their improved handling in the wet and confidence they give when pushing hard in the dry.I would normally have changed the tyres out for Pirelli SuperCorsa Pro's but having liked the Quailfiers I thought I would give the Sportssmarts a try unlikely to move away from the Dunlops now.
Mich 2CT's I've found to be very good on both my F4's or if you aren't bothered about wear rates, try Power Race, soft on the front and medium on the rear. They are road legal (just) and stick to the road like the proverbial to a blanket, just make sure you warm them up before trying to emulate Stoner round corners. Lol
I have 2CTs on my Senna and love them as well, but am about to replace them with a set of Pures
I only ride these bikes on the weekends from home to the twisties and back again. I have done 7000klms on S1000RR and there is another 1000klm in them before they need to be changed. The Senna has done about the same on the 2CTs.
Both tyres are fantastic in the wet.
i also have Pilot Power 2s on my R1200 RT and they perform very well wet or dry.
Bottom line - Michelin and Pilot Powers are good gear - imo
It doesn’t matter what kind of dealership I contact, they all have sucked! Big Box store that sells used bikes. MV Agusta certified dealer located across the country. Mom & Pop type joint selling Italian brands. They all fail at acting professional. They don’t answer the phone. They don’t return...
First thing is, it’s not that uncomfortable. I like it better than the 1098, the S1000rr, the 2014 Fireblade, and the Brutale 1090rr. Why? I don’t know. Maybe because it’s the bike “I wanted”...? Either way, I enjoy it. The powerband and character of the engine appeals to me. It’s so docile...
So I googled it, look into the old manual..nada.
Need the bulb number for the main headlamp (not the highbeam).
How could this be?? I had an LED in there for years-non matching. When It finally bit the dust I had no idea what the bulb was.
Please and ty!

While it's next to impossible to get specialty metric bolts in the states, just about everyone carries metric shelf pins for whatever reason (ikea?). Turns out the staggered 5mm pins are a perfect fix for missing fairing stay pins, without which your turn signals won't work.
