    Michelin Power RS

    I've been through a few sets of these.. and completely happy with them.. just ordered a new rear which is now RS plus with re-worked carcass, and for want of a better phrase harder compound on the crown.

    This one has lasted circa 100 or so either side of 2.5k miles at a guess...

    Longevity for what I use it for is excellent even though I'll go through a rear in say 3 months, grip is excellent even at an advanced stage of wear.

    Plenty meat left on the front with only slightly noticeable out of round on the profile (inspected last night when re-balancing)... no reason to change it.

    Power Pilot 2CTs had been my tyre of choice for at least 10 years on my blades and 10R... never had a moment with any of Michelins Supersport hoops.

    Got my doughs worth out of this one for sure..

    I love the grip but first Michelin in years and first puncture in years.

    i have a half warn set of these on my spare wheels, i like the grip of the RS but not the movement you get hat higher lean angles as well as the slow warm up time and the lack of wet grip. i will need to wear them out but for now im back on the m7rr's.

    Re: Michelin Power RS

    My plan for today is to go out for the day and try and build confidence in the set I put in mine a couple of months ago. Due to work I've hardly used the bike, this year, but the few miles I've done, they feel very different to the k3's that I've been using, and had the abs kick in, and more or less disengage the brakes with them.

    With today's forecast, hopefully by tea time tonight I'll be happy with them.

    What pressure you running them at Stuart?

    Mine are at about 32 front, 29 rear. Scorcher of a day here, and faith fully restored in them, and scrubbed in. Now just to hope that this won't be summer over in Scotland!
