GOD DOAMMMMM, those pilot powers are stickey as hell, i was riding down the road and roled on the throttle.

the front end came up very easy, rode it out for a minuite, the front wheel was so damn easily. haha, the tires stuck so damn good it was amazing.

just thought i would share how great the new pilot powers stick.

LOL... Ralph, you up for a ride this weekend so you could actually scrub those in? The taller profile is great and helps the bike fall into turns much easier. Just wait until you get to actually heat them up and hit the twisties with them..... I've been running Powers since early 05 on two different bikes (600rr, 636) on both the street and track and I love them....

yeah, im down for a ride, ill ride but in reality i have to keep taking it easy, after my last crash i am kinda scared I.e. worried about crashing again.

i paid $93 for the front and $208 for the rear, then $30.00 for a shop to mount and balance them.

What size tires did all of you order. My bt014's are finally down to their last few miles with 7k on them. Im just researching on what tire size to get for the pilot powers. If you guys can name the place and price also that would be good.

I ordered pilot powers for my 96 track bike last year and I absolutely love them. If anybody is riding beyond these limits on the street, they have a wishing for a visit from the grim reaper... I am now using an 01 for the track and picked up the Racetecs for this year because of the deal they are running.

I have used 207, 208, BT014, BT012 and Diablos and the Powers are my favs.

[:++1] FOR SURE!!!! That was one of the first things I noticed about them, the old bt014's used to scare the crap outta me in the wet, but the Powers are AWESOME!!! If I hadn't been soaked to the bone I would have thought the roads were still dry!!!:D
