I just bought an SV650 from my brother and right now it has a set of Pilot Roads on it. It's probably all psychological but I just cannot trust those tires. The suspension on the bike isn't that good either and whenever I approach a corner, it just doesn't feel right. I've missed two riding seasons since I sold my bike but before that, I was on a 2001 R6.
I have a GSXR rear shock, heavier springs and Traxxion emulators ready to install on the SV. I'm hoping these will make the bike feel a bit more planted. I'm also considering just getting a new set of tires put on; something that I know I can trust a bit more. I just don't like to do it since the current Pilot Roads are almost brand new.
What do you guys think? For street riding on the more agressive side, should I switch out to a set of tires that I can have a bit more faith in? Or, are the Pilot Roads a decent tire that can be trusted?
