    Hugh, have you got forged (HP) or cast wheels on your bike?

    I know I don't have HP wheels. I have the wheels the bike came with and didn't tick any option, so I presume they're what we call "stock".

    Wheels

    You have the OEM cast wheels fitted and not the lighter HP forged wheels.

    So in that case dont go with the 200 rear profile tyre. The TC is not set on your bike for the 200 rear and tbh it makes no discernable difference to run with one. PR5 (havent tried but the PR4s were good) or the M7RR / Rosso3 are all good for miles and all weather.

    If you order a bike with HP wheels does it come with a 200 section?
    Punctuation - the difference between knowing your shit and knowing you're shit.

    HP Forged Wheels

    Yes; they come fitted with a 200 profile rear tyre.

    So, since I fitted mine I have no regrets. I've ridden about a thousand miles already and my confidence is at it's best. Damp roads should always flag caution but when the wet weather hits us I am confident they will be good. I also think the turn in on these tyres is great (you've only got to look at the profile to see why). I think the final bonus over the PR4's is the extra rubber on the edges and so far it has proven good.
    I had one very minor slip on acceleration round a right hander but don't really count that as an issue as I put that down to my own sillyness (accelerating on a white line is not recommended ;-) ).

    I'm almost thinking these are better than M7's for the road - but that just doesn't sound right!
