Pilot Road 3's

After 4,000 miles of highway commuting between school and work, the stock Dunlop Qualifier II's have committed suicide. I will say I wish they died off quicker because I NEVER liked them, nor did I trust them with grip.. I felt that they have a squared off design and it made it where I had to give it hell to bomb into turns... Like the bike was fighting me to stand back upright.

Well it Was between Q2's (which I had on my 06 600rr) or go for something new. I chose the Michelins PR3s.

Finally got 1,000 miles on the new tires and boy was I shocked. The initial ride was all straights home, but it felt a lot more stable and agile. After really getting on it into turns, it actually scared me. The bike loves to hug the road and dive into turns effortlessly.. It was so smooth and willing to lean over I thought I was too low for the streets, I've never gotten this low before . They are definitely worth the $314 OTD price I paid!! I WILL be buying them again for sure. Here they are.








They are awesome because I will not be taking this to the track, in about a year I'll be buying another cbr strictly for the track..I know these tires are not meant for track use.

They look nice! I've been tempted to try them. I file the sides of my pures down to the bars in less then 2k miles. I don't track this bike but I live in the twisty foothills, so I'm on the edge of the rear tire often.

Yeah man, I know- I have pushed them decently hard for my own pace and the feel good so far. Not going to be doing anything crazy.

They're multi-compound. The edges are the same stuff the other pilot's are. I used the Road 2's on my 1098S and they never gave me an ah-shit moment.

I only ran the road rears, I used the Pilot Power 2CT on the front.

^exactly.. I have only had the rear slide out a bit when i was really low in a turn on the street and i went over the damn white painted arrow in the turning lane.. It gripped so quick after it slipped. Not even close to an oh shit moment.

I love my new set. Definitely know what you mean about the lean in and agility. Great feeling, and i feel very connected now.

I mostly commute with my bike now, and I am very interested in getting better milage out of a set. hope these work out with the harder compound down the middle.

Got a fantastic price + mount/balance at Texas power sports up in Gtown. I was pleasantly suprised at the price and service. Cheaper to pay them to do it, than to invest my time and do it myself. Rare thing that.
