Cool, ta Madness , a buddy of mine has an older R1 and he runs a Shinko on the rear, its very square in profile but he manages round corners quite well and he gets 5,000 miles on the darned things !!

I have to go with FAF Shinko's they have 2 types of tire design but one of them has 2 different types of compunds look into it a LOT of street dragracers around here use them like hot ckaes going out of style and they are cheap and last along time

Pirelli Supercorsa 180/55/17 SC2 is what I run. It is lighter than the shinko and hooks with way more air in it. It's also good for the turns.
