Received a set of these. They have temp restrictions of 41F. This info should be disclosed better by Pirelli and the vendors who sell the tires. Not really suitable for road riding in the Fall in NY due to the limit.

Will save them for next Summer.

The tires are also not labeled as TD in any way. I had to run the serial number by Pirelli to confirm they are authentic.

Indeed, corrected, 180/60 will ruin your mudflap. Stick to the 180/55. Glad I did not had the $380 carbon flap installed. $30 for a new plastic one.

Pard On the 2019 Hyper 950 SP, 180/60 Dunlop Q4s rub against the rear mud guard just a bit when brand new. 180/55 are the recommended size.

FYI

Pard A little more info on the Q3+ and the Q4s

I spoke with the Dunlop factory and they gave me pressure recommendations for the Hypermotard running either Q4 or Q3+ on the street or track. My experience running these pressures were excellent.

Street Cold Pressure:

32 Rear 34 Front

Track Cold:

30 rear 32 front

test hot right off the track 34 rear 35 front give or take 1 psi
Max hot tested pressure 36 rear 36 front

Pard Yesterday, the Q4s did fine on a rain soaked track. Solid grip despite the wet at NJMP.

They feel really good on the street as well. Not sure they offer much more than the Q3+s for my riding style on the hyper.

Pard Mounted the Dunlop Q4s. Have a track day next week. Will report back.

The Q3s they replaced lasted 2K miles, with wear bars showing on the sides of the tire, front and back. Center sections are still good. The sides of the tires grip really well at lean angle, but I guess the cost is life span.

Ordered a set of Pirelli DOT TD tires.

NEW Diablo TRACKDAY tire

$319 for a set shipped. Same price as the Q4 after the Dunlop rebate.

P.S.: I was just informed that the Pirelli TDs are out of stock until Mid August.

I should set ABS to 1. That is good advice and thanks for sharing your good experience with it. TC has not been intrusive so far.

The Supercorsas felt better, but I got used to the Dunlop Q3+s.

I plan to try the Pirelli DOT TD tire as well at some point.
