Michelin Pilot Power 3 Rear Tires
Having taken these to the track and through the twisties I have to say the grip is amazing, especially on the faster corners my bike feels like it's connected to the road by rails, I took these tires to the track having never gotten my knee down and always having been afraid of leaning and in my groups first instructor session I got my knee down, dragged footpeg and set a really good (mid pack intermediate) lap time.
I'm riding a 2007 Ninja 650r, On the track I ran 28f/28r and that worked really well for me, I've left them at that pressure for fun and once the tires heat up (which is really quickly) It almost feels like I'm riding the bike through water because of how stuck to the road it feels even straight up.
Amazing tires, I would recommend them

I have a full set on my 2012 ZX10R and I have to say I love these tires. Great for the highway or the track. You will not be dissapointed.

Perfect progression from Pilot Power 2ct
I've been riding on the Pilot Power 2ct's for several years, naturally when it came time to replace i moved onto the Pilot Power 3.
Tire has been great so far, immense amount of grip all the way to the shoulders, actually feels like it has a little better profile than the older ones. Loves to turn, and the wet weather traction has been amazing also. I was caught off guard by a storm and the tire held the road perfectly, way better than my old 2ct's would do in the rain.
Anyone looking for some great tires look no further, I've had Pirelli's, Conti's, and Bridgestone's and none have had the life and grip of the pilot powers. The added lean angle has always been appreciated.

Pilot power 3. They are legit! Can't wait for motogp next year
So I just got these tires mounted. And I must say.. Wow. They say trust your tires... And so off with the oem battlax. No offense to Bridgestone but these michelins are a world of difference. Granted that the old tires had 5k on them, but might as well go with a bit of an upgrade right? The feedback from the tires are great. I can feel the road but not the harshness of our beloved beltway. Anyways. So the grip after the break in period is great. I m already down to .25" to the edge. Get down get down get down! I m not really that aggressive when it comes to the twistys, but these tires really feel great and tame the turns. Wish I could get out on to a track. I need more left. turns. Any way. Power pilots won't disappoint. Revzilla's price and free delivery are totally worth it. If u love your bike and love to ride... The answer is obvious duh.

Favorite tire i've ever run
Bought the Power 3 to replace my Road 2, and I love it. Great grip, mileage so far is not as great as other harder compounds, but what else should I expect? It's a little more firm, but still inspires some extra confidence in hard turns. Overall It's a great tire.

I've been on PP3s front and rear for around 3k street miles and 2 track days (about to be 3# at a beginner-intermediate pace. Looks like I could get 4-5 track days total on it #at my pace), and another couple thousand miles. Nothing but good things to say about this tire. Hasn't squared off from my street riding, and has more than enough grip for me to take advantage of.

Best tire you can buy
My 2012 ZX10R absolutely loves these tires. I am a pretty aggressive rider and these tires stand up to the rigors of my liter bike tom-foolery. They have great grip in all situations and the tread life is excellent especially if you do a lot of slab riding (straight highway). You wont be disappointed with you purchase.
