OEM tyres

Just clocked up 3500ks & I don't think the rear tyre will do another run, so I've ordered Metzler M7. I hope they last a little longer as I was not impressed with the Dunlops. See how we go.

yeah i went through a set around the same distance on my MT09 (dunlop D214's). My GSXS is nearly at 3000km (1800 miles) and i expect to change them soon.

I'm tempted by Pilot Powers but commonsense says PR4's as I have to ride in all weather conditions. Had both PR3's and 4's on my Street Triple and they are great in the dry and simply outstanding in the wet. It will be interesting to see how they stand up to a track day in February

I ran the M7 last year on my RC51. Great tyre! Edge grip is superb and feel is really positive in the wet.
To top it all I got better mileage too. You won't be dissapointed

I agree with oem tyres.
Im around 2200kms and it's not much left to go.
I seriously don't ride that hard. it's a soft compound.
metzeler m7rr is on my next list.

I have used a lot of pilot road 3s & found them a good compromise between wear & grip, as we don't have lots of bends in WA. I've just tried the pilot 4 & did an extra 1000ks compared to the 3s, but found the rear very wooden compared to the 3s, so won't use them again. For me the Michelins are the easiest tyre to fit because of their construction, no steel belt in the side wall.
All depends on what you need from the tyre, but there is plenty to choose from

It really depends on the bike too. I've always used Pilot Roads, and have owned PR2's, PR3's and PR4's. I think they just keep getting better. The 4's wore just as well as the 3's from my perspective, at least on my SV1000. I'll be putting PR4's on as soon as these things wear out.

GSX R's also come with a 190/50.
