Michelin Pilot Power (mileage)

Hill and El D' have got me convinced I need new tires.

I have 4k on the O.E. Dunlops and have been rather ok with their performance.

Question
What kind of mileage are we seeing with the PP's?

TIA
Phil

I, too, had no real problem with the stock Dunlops. I was able to use them all the way to the edge without scaring myself. I got about 4,000 out of my stock rear and went to the PPs. I now have about 3,000 on the PPs and the rear looks like it will go at least another 3,000 so the PPs wear a little better than the stock Dunlops. The PPs feel better to me than the stock Dunlops.

Yea I agree the PP seems to hold up pretty well. I too got about 4k out of the stockers and I've got about 1600 on the PP now and they still look real good. (not flat spotted)

How well your tires hold up (especially rears) has alot to do with right hand control and how you are riding.
