    tyres for S1000 RR

    Hi
    I'm looking to replace my tyres on the S1000 RR.
    Im not sure which one of these three would be best, both around the same price. Fast road riding no track.

    BridgestoneBattlax S22
    or
    Pirelli Diablo Rosso Supercorsa II
    or
    Metzeler Sportec M9RR


    Any experience with these shoes?

    The S22s receive good reviews

    I have the Michelin Power RS on the bike now, I'm not to happy with them. I have done 2500 miles and the rear is on 3mm now.
    The M9RR is standing out

    Re: tyres for S1000 RR

    Prob not too relevant as I’m in Oz and apparently we get different rubber due to higher ambient temps...but, S22 have been the best tyre I’ve ever ridden on.

    Not yet tried DRC2 (bad experience on the originals so I’ve shied away from the ‘slipirellies ’) or any metzelers, but coming from different Dunlop’s and Power RS, these bridgestones shit all over what I’ve tried before (not a wet weather rider anymore so can’t comment on that aspect).

    Re: tyres for S1000 RR

    The problem with tyres is their use/feel is as unique as you are as a rider and bike combination. What works for you might not work for someone else. I've tried the same tyre spec on two different bikes in the past (think they were Battlax B10s, but can't remember). Worked brilliant on a 2002 ZX636, found them shit on a 2005 ZX636.
