939 SP and tires
 
Hey guys. I got a '17 939 SP in July and the rear tire is already pretty flat spotted. These tires are really overkill for the type of mixed riding I do. What are you guys using when you replace the stock softies? Was looking at the Michelin PP3. I haven't tracked it yet and won't be aside from maybe a few times a season. A lot of twisty back country though with a few longer straight line trips thrown in now and the what would you guys suggest?

I have been successfully running Q3s for the past several years. On sale. I can get them for just over $200/set

Agreed that the Supercorsas are overkill unless you're at the track or only ride on the hairy edge. The new Dunlop Sportmax Q3+ will last you about 7,000 or more kms on the rear at moderate pace for mixed riding. Way less expensive than the Supercorsas and provide 90% of the performance. Hard to beat.

Thanks guys. Was looking at the Q3 as well. I'll see if I can find a set on sale.

Honestly unless you ride primarily in the canyons/mountains the Q3 is also overkill. I hear the Q3+ is suppose to last longer than the Q3 but you still have to deal with the near slick tread in the wet.

For a really good all around tire look at the Bridgestone S21, Michelin Pilot POWER III, and the Pirelli Diablo Rosso III.

Right now the Rosso III is my favorite in that class. Iím getting awesome performance wet and dry and exceptional mileage for a sport tire.

Riding Pilot Road 4 on my 821 SP. Best year round street tire I have tried. Though new Road 5 is coming apparently. You can drag knee on these, and handle rain, dirt roads, wheelies, power slides, so on so forth. They will last much longer too. Been using Pilot Roads for street use on my GSXR, Tuono V4r and Hyper for years, only use hypersport rubber for track days.

+1 on the Rosso III. Great tire, plenty of grip even for the occasional track day.

I have 14000 miles on my SP and have tried Pirelli Diablo Corse, Michelin Pilot Power 3 and Power 1( burned up quick and overkill) , and currently running dumlop Q3's.

I dont get good milage out of the pirellie's, The pilot 3's were awesome and I got descent milage out of a set, like 2000. I am really liking the Q3's, very stable.

If your looking for milage, try the pirelli angel GT's.
