Wondering what kind of mileage people are getting out of the stock tires. I'm looking to replace mine with either BT-021's or PS2's as I just put a lot of miles on. I also, unfortunately, have a lot of commuting miles and I tend to square off a tire long before I get a chance to mangle the sides.

4800 kms on mine got a new one in the garage just waiting Pirelli corsa III. Square with some beveles.

My stock BT-014 rear lasted 2,500 miles. The replacement BT-014 lasted about 3,700. Not sure why. The front lasted 6,200+ and still had a little life left in it. Just had some Pilot Powers put on last week. Never going back to Bridgestones.

Stock Pirellis lasted 2200 miles and they were down to the steel cords. Running Michelin PP 2CT now and have 1K miles and they look good, should get a little more mileage than the stock tires.

Stock Pirellis:
1 track day
3100 total miles
Still at least another 1k (street) left on them.

Why run a supersport tire when all you do is commute?

You'd be a lot better off with something like a Diablo Strada, Pilot Road II, or BT-021...

So far I like the Diablo Stradas on the bike. 2K mixed riding (no track) and they look new.

Pirellis nearly gone at 2400

The original Pirellis about done at 2400 miles, especially rear. I know some will argue against anything w/ a touring slant, but the Michelin Pilot Road 2 tires really do a decent twisty road job & wear fairly well for commuting.

Really, most of us don't need all out performance tires for an 85hp Duc for daily riding. Track days, sure, but that's the exception for most folks.

99% of my miles on the HM-S are commute miles.

1,050 miles out of the original Diablo Corsas; switched to Diablo Stradas and now I get 1,300 miles out of the rear and I replace the front at the same time just because.

Previously, I ran the Bridgestone BT-021 on my KTM 640 Supermoto (my former commute bike), and I typically got 2,200 miles out of the rear.

From this, I suppose it is fair to say someone might get almost 2X thread wear out of the Bridgestones compared to the Pirellis with the caveat the HM-S also has about 2X the HP and Torque as the KTM.
