    Let's Have A Moment...

    Okay, 2800 clicks and my tire is done!!!

    I'm all for maximum grip, but this is a little ridiculous!!!

    Usually, I'll get 9000k out of a back tire...

    Can someone give some recommendations for a good medium compound, for the 1098???

    I sympathize with ya...

    But as someone once said, when you ride a bike that can highside you into next week you want the stickiest tire you can find...

    I'd bitch like hell when the ZX9 would go through a tire in 5000 k or less, but then there's that highsiding thing again..

    I have no recommendations other than I've found that tire life is directly correlated to the twist factor of the right wrist.....
    Good luck and keep us (me) posted on what you get and how it holds up.

    if you told us what tire you were running.........

    i would recommend the Pilot Power 2CT softer compound on the outside harder down the middle..

    Judging by your past picture with the Hayabusa and you looking like Vanilla Ice, I'd say this is about correct.

    Science, it makes sense!

    okay then i think overall you will be happy with the Michilin Pilot Power 2ct... best prices i've seen are at Baysideperformance and 5th gear.. give them a call and check prices on those tires.
