Is there any hope that you'll stop using the main 10R related forum as an inbox and havin' us sort your posts where they should be? :dontknow: :crackup:

To answer your question though... I hated the D218's... I love my Pilot Powers. :thumbsup: Took the Dunflops off of Loca and sold them to stunters at less than 200 miles on them. :wink:

I am sure the bike being so awesome makes the tires seem worse than they are but they are not near as good as pp.
I saw www.ronayers.com has them for $228 for the 180 set and $250 for the 190 set.
My biggest problem with the 218's is they feel hard as rocks. I much prefer the softer feel of the Powers. I tried adjusting the pressures down on the 218's on Diablo and it seemed that they went from hard to much within a pound of pressure change. Never could get them to feel "right". Aside from the fact that Diablo and Loca both seemed to tend to drift toward the outside of corners on the 218's (not really sliding so maybe not traction related) they stuck ok once they warmed up. I described them as not having a solid connection to the road given their tendency to drift like that, but maybe that had more to do with their profile and handling characteristics than their grip. :dontknow:

We ride bikes that could keep up with or beat full on race bikes from 10 years ago. The pilot power is a better street tire but the 218s have plenty of grip when warmed up. Even aftermarket tires like the Powers will spin on the 10.

yeah el the tires drift and are nervese how many miles can I expect out of pilot powers
Not sure... I've never worn a set out. Had around 800 miles on the set I had on my busa when I sold it and they still looked new. I think they had just lost the rubber nubs in fact. I'm guessing probably somewhere around 2500-3000 miles (maybe more) the way I ride. To reference that, the nipples were gone from the rear 218 I just took off at less than 200 miles and the rear that came on Diablo was into the wear bars at 1600 miles.
