I have Shinko 003's (Hookup on the back) on my 12 and I have no issues at all. I want it to hook when I twist the throttle and it does. I'm also not riding my 12 like I am Jonathan Rea going after the WSBK championship.

wow, Shinko Drag Radials on the street...i guess tires comes down to how hard i ride my 12r and i only ride the bike hard...in a straight line for now and i am not going to be riding like I am on a ZX10R. Its so hard to find a tire based on my relatively easy riding style that still is a quality tire that i wont be worried about coming apart or having inferior quality saving $50. I have A Metzeler M5 up front which i am keeping but its a 5 year old tire already. I have no idea what to run in the rear that will compliment the front tire OR is my front tire at 5 years old causing handling issues if it hasnt yet? i was looking at the Battlax Bridgestones S20 for the back which is the older version of the S21. i got about $150-$160 US dollars to spend on a rear tire
