Michelin Pilot Power 3 Rear Tires
This is a great tire
This tire is sitting in my living room waiting for me to put the last 2000 miles on the Pilot Power 3 tire that is already installed on my 2012 Concours14. Now all I need is for winter to break so I can start riding again.

Only Used For Canyon Riding - 2012 Yamaha R1 With TC
I never use my bike for commuting, I ride my bike to the canyons for 3 to 4 hours and drive back home and park it till next week. I think I only put 1700 miles on these tires (I'm guessing that's pretty reasonable since I only ride them hard ) and they are done. The sides are all worn down and the rear tire is starting to slide here and there. I was riding in the canyons today, the rear tire was making my traction control go off much more than it would normally. TC was practically shutting down my power for a long stretch at times which was abnormal. The top of the tire still has plenty or tread but the sides are worn down and just not gripping anymore. I saw people with liter bikes on here comment that they slide with these tires quite a bit. I have an R1 so that may be the case but they are not new and it could be that they are just to warn down to grip like I just bought them
These tires have been pretty good for the most part I think its just time to replace them. These are my first aftermarket tires I bought for my R1 and they were good while they lasted. I'm new to street, I come from a dirt bike background and sportbikes are so different. I'm thinking with the tread it still has, it should still be gripping but who knows. Now I'm debating on buying the same tires or trying out some new ones to see what out there. Maybe something better out there? Who knows....

Good traction grip everything they should be tons of grip.

Revzilla's awesome customer service helped me pick this tire. I am glad I did. Much better handling, grip while providing better confidence in cornering. Great product and super fast shipping!. Thanx!

Very grippy, reliable tread.
So far, put about 1000 miles on this tire. Still looks in great condition, has great grip on the corners. Very comparable to the previous 2CT tire i was running, and this looks to be a little bit longer life. Would recommend for other sportbikes

Takes a while to warm up. Slips a lot when cold.
Takes a while to warm up. Slips a lot when cold. The compound seems a lil harder then the pilot power 2 I tried before this one.

Got this for my fz8 after I wore the factory Bridgestone battle axe tires to the wire. Soooooo much better. Seems like they are grippy from the get go and don't need as much time to get warm. Before I had to be real careful on the throttle through corners, much more confident now.

Wow, I can't believe the difference between this tire and my stock dunlap tires that came on my r6. So sticky and just great quality. Seems to be wearing really nice. I am a huge fan of michelin products, I run them on all of my vehicles. If you are an "aggressive" street rider, who likes to take corners, this is the best you can get. Not track tires, but you can't run slicks on the street!
