Welcome to the world of High Pref. M/C'ing ! I was changing

them every 2k , a good friend of mine rides a zx-9r and he's

getting alittle more , high speed riding on hot surfaces

really eats them up.

Metzler MEZ seem to last a hole lot longer and are just as sticky.

i fitted a set of Michelin Pilot Sport HPX's a few weeks ago and have so far clocked up just over 1000 miles. so far they are wearing really well. they suit the 12 superbly, and are by far the grippiest and quickest steering tyres that i've tried so far...recommended!

Michelin Pilot Race tires work very well..once they heat up!

The rubber is sticky but doesn't wear as quickly as the dunlops. (Maybe the Pilots just have deeper tread on the tire!?!)

These tires are the Standard Race Compound.

(*Not Race Soft*)



Front 120/70ZR17 ->$125 each

Rear 180/55ZR17 ->$135 each



+actual shipping charges from zip code 35802



Michelin will introduce a slightly different tread pattern next year, so I won't be needing these.



If anyone is interested in multiple sets?? I've got plenty <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

& if anyone wonders??? They fit & work well on the 12 & busa.
