    Need to do my first rear tire ever. I have 10K on the stock diablo and it just started to show the cords. The middle is gone but the sides still have half left.
    What has everyone gone with?
    I was thinking of getting the Pirelli Diablo Corsa III that come factory on the 1125 since they have dual tread as mine are only worn in the middle.

    Sugestions?

    Thanks

    A lot of people have had good luck with the Michelin Pilot Power 2CT's and there's some great deals out there right now on a set of them!...Like just over $200 shipped!

    I just put a new set of Battlax BT016 tires on. I went 190 on the rear. I only have a couple hundred miles on them but they ride great. I also like the pilot powers.

    I'm thinkinf of the 190, would it give me more or less contact patch when on the highway?

    Tried many, now it's Michelin Pilot Power, on all my bikes.

    Why in the "hell"...did you wait till the cord is showing...?

    Pirelli angel. Great for commuting soft on the sides and hard in the middle.

    I'm in the same boat, first rear tire for me too. I only got 3500 miles out of mine (no burnouts).
    I really want to try the Power Pure but I think I will go with the Power 2CT everyone raves about them and they cost a little less that the Pirelli Diablo Corsa III

    this is a good comparison between them.
