So I have been running Michelin Pilot Power 2CTs for a looooong time on my gen1. I have not really looked at anything else, so I want some input as to if there is anything better that I can try out.

Bt003 or q3 for road use. Superbikes or ntech slicks or even the GPAs for track.
:thumbsup: a forum member turned me onto the superbikes and I'm very impressed.
Cool, thanks. I will look into the superbikes for trackdays for sure. Q3....are Qualifier 3's? I have not had Qualifiers since...wait, my wife's gen1 has them. I think they are the OEM ones though cause they suck monkey balls.

Yeah the Dunlop Q3s are much better than OEM. If anyone on the west coast is looking for UK Dunlop slicks I know a guy who has a set $325 the front is lightly used.

Mrmoto73 I think I ran Michelin's without hesitation on every bike I have had for the last 8 years or so, at least since the pilot power came out. A friend over the winter kept saying try the Dunlop Q3's (I ride very hard). I found a deal so I gave them a try, I have been exceptionally happy with them. They grip right out of the driveway cold or hot, good road feel, good turn in, very predictable, and solid in bad weather. Mileage I get is about the same as well. Now I will grant you everyone is different, but I give these the edge slightly over the Michelin as I found them to be a tad greasy feeling when really on edge. Again these feel very predictable to me. I have not had them on a track this year, but I am sure I would feel very good running an advanced pace with them. Then again Ive ran advanced on regular pilot powers lol.

Just as a side note, last fall I did try a set of the Bridgestone BT003RS on another friends advice, I did not like them one bit. I never found a good setting for them, they always felt just greasy to me.
