I've picked up a nail on the OEM rear
it's to close to the shoulder to repair, I'm not sure if its worth it tbf as it's started squaring off at 2100 miles and most people on here reckon you're lucky to get more than 3k out of the rear... which I'm reasonably disappointed with. Although I'm no saint with regard to speed limits thats pretty poor mileage from a new tyre, my last bike (ninja) did 5k on the oem, my riding style is no different and this tyre didn't feel any stickier than that oem tyre. I replaced the tyre on the ninja with a Roadsmart 3 and did 5,000+ miles on that with no signs of wear before I traded it in, so I've gone with the same on the gsxs. It was more money than a qualifier 2 by £40 but the longevity should cancel that out... we'll see!

|Beaker||Metzler M7RR's pretty good in the wet and excellent in the dry and pretty reasonable mileage for a sports tyre|

Given the front is quite a firm compound tyre I'd go with the roadsmart....used the original Mk1 on a GSXR1k K7 and they were great in all conditions.
However if your mainly a fair weather rider and want grip over mileage...ditch the front Dunlop 214 and get a set of Q3 or similar...so long as you ride quick enough and have the climate to keep heat in them.

|Gnomie||I have had very good experiences with Dunlops on my other bikes - though I run Pr3s then PR4s on one of them and have been very happy.|
