Question

What tires are you running on your r1. I just changed to pirelli diablo supercorsa on my Kawi ZX9R, and am about to change tires on the R1 and was thinking of maybe Michelin.

    Love the S22 on the R1, I’ve had multiple sets of Q3+ but they wear out way too quickly, they’re great tires, but I prefer the S22s by far.

    Yes, it appears to be the one most people suggest. Doing some research on them.

    Hence the option of owning 2 bikes. i will run a different tire on the R1 which is why I was asking for suggestions.

    Michelin Power 5s are amazing. Buy those. I have them on my R1M.

    You can use Power 5s on level 1 or 2 track days. Don’t run Road 5s on the track IMO.

    I would go with S22!
    You get the same "hook-up" as a Q3+ with the loads of forgiveness like a Power RS.
    ALSO… THEY ARE $100+ CHEAPER THAN THE ABOVE TWO!!!

    I also like the Rosso II’s and the TDs by Pirelli.

    Q3+ even though at times they’ll wiggle on you lls

    OK guys! I went with the S22 tires. Thanks for your input and ride safe!
