I only got 820 miles before the nail I thought about trying to repair the tire (that's another whole topic), but since I can't seem to lock into a corner with the OEM and wear reports are crap, I also figure its an excuse to try something new.Do nails count? A whole 1065 miles out of the rear. I guess it gave me a good excuse to put on the PR4s early.
F just stands for Front :laugh:Question:
I see that no one has mentioned what is their OEM tyre that Suzuki fitted.
Mine has Dunlop D214F front and D214 rear. I don't know if the front F is a softness grade or not but I would be surprised if the whole world got the same tyre. All I know is that they are too soft and once again Suzuki are covering their ar*se in fitting overly soft tyres for legal's reasons again.
My bike has 2400 km and looks like perhaps 3600 km to worn at both ends.
My street riding is conservative, but the roads here are like sharks teeth rough rocks embedded on a black glue base. Certainly not asphalt.
It will get Pilot Road 4. I ran P/Road 3's on a GSXR1000 and they were fine on it.
Hey Nicka,8500km out of my front tyre, I'm replacing it this week with a PR4 and I could probably get another 500km out of it easily but as I have a longer trip this weekend doing over that distance I'm worried it will wear to the canvas early before the wear marks like the rear tyre did

looks like your prior bragging about Blue being the powerful one seems spot on.
To indicate this, your front wheel spends 2 - 3 times with air under the front hoop, than Geoff or my rear wheel did (does) (8500 c/- 3600km).
I am sure Geoff and You can pull wheelies all day every day, but you seem to have the demonstrated proof with that tyre's life.
What a lucky time to pick up a nail. I've only picked up nails in brand new tires... And so far it's been more than a couple...My rear is shot at 3,000 miles. Going with the Metzler M7s.
Edit: Took the last ride with the old tires, got back home and I noticed I picked up a nail in the front. Stick a fork in these tires!
luck has nothing to do with tire mileage but everything to do with driving style and roads surfacei must be lucky too, got 10 000 km on my rear front still on will probably do 16 000 km. What is it that makes such a difference i dont ride all that slow.
