I got a nail in my rear tire (power pilot) last month so i went to the place where i get the hookup on $$$ and all he had was a shinko 005 left. Of course i put it on and started to ride. I am now finding that this tire grips and holds like the pilot. I am starting to really like it. It gets temp super fast and just a great tire. What is yall opinion on shinko ??? Also i read a review in motorcyclist (friends mag) about a new 2006 tire from avon called a Viper Supersport, AV60 is the rear tire. Review said it will be a superb street tire with compound options for the track. Next set of tire is get will be one of the 3. Just want some ideas and opinions.. Thanks

If you like the feel why change? Also that issue said the qualifies were the best but you didnt post them?

I just got a flat in my friggin rear (brand new!) Pilot Power last week. During finals week no less. I love the Powers and seeing as I just put them on, I obviously put another on the rear. If I could, though, I would try the Dunlop Qualifiers out for one particular reason:

The rear comes in a 190/55-17. This would certainly help the rear ride height problem a little (without pulling the shock or pulling the forks through the triple), while offering a good tire to boot. They sound about on par with the Pilot Powers, though they may wear quicker. Normally, though, I can't stand Dunlop street tires.

Also, I NEVER mismatch tires. Just my (and every tire manufacturer's) opinion.

Where did you get the 190/55 from? On the dunlop site it says that it will be a 190/50 for the qualifiers

Are the 06 zx10's gonna have qualifiers? I didn't know that. I know that the bikes are gonna have the 190/55s but the dunlop site says that the qualifiers will be 190/50s, that is the 06 tires, that's when they come out.

I was just at the IMS in San Jose. The '06 10R's were running OEM 190/55-17 Dunlop Qualifiers.
