I've gotten over 8,000 on rear PR2s on my Hayabusa and have already bought the PR3 for my tour in July. The fronts last more than 10,000. I'll know more about the 3 after I get back from Montana.

I've noticed this too. I really love my PR2s but I have about 8K on them now and the scalloping is quite bad. I get a loud humming noise and some new vibrations while leaned over. Riding a set of twisties without speeding up or slowing down but just maintaining a constant pace seems to have smoothed out the rear tire somewhat. However, my riding style most be conducive to scalloping tires or something because the same thing happens on my Ninja 250 when the tires are nearly worn out.

Also, the front PR2 on my VFR appears to be wearing slightly faster than the rear.

Third set of PR2's on my C14. The least I've gotten out of PR2 rears is about 15,000 miles. The fronts go about 20,000.

All conditions riding.















The next set will probably be Michelin PR3.

YMMV.

Not to hijack the thread, but did you use the PR2's before going to the 3's?

If so how do they compare in your opinion. I currently have the PR2's on my FJR and really like them but at some point this summer I will need to replace them.

9k out of a 180/55 BT-023. loved this tire. did not flatten in the center. excellent grip at the edge.

4k so far from pirelli angels. rear is developing a flat stripe in the middle. lots of highway? skip this one.

I have run Pilot Road2's, COnti Road Attacks, and 023's...I like the 023's the best in the rain, on the freeway, in the cooler weather, and for it's wear resistance, and for it's stability when towing my single wheeled trailer.
I like the Road Attack best for the twisties and appearance (face it-it's the best looking tire available), but it wasn't confidence inspiring on crappy asphalt or wet roads.

PR2 was great in rain, and wore well, but cupped and scalloped badly causing weird vibrations, even before 5000 miles.
I agree i have used Road Attacks and have gotten 6000 miles and still going, held up great and no problems once so ever on a FZ1.

My bike is Honda CBR1000F. Lots of different results from the same tires. The best I can decifer from the comments is that the Pilot Road 2's or the BT-023 for long life and little center flattening on mostly interstate travel. I wonder what the Wingers do for tires? No twisties going there.

Pr3

Go with Michelin Pilot Road 3.

I had PR2 and they were fine (10500 km with lot of highway ride).
Then I tried Pirelli Angel ST, no good in rain, they lasted only 6000 km.

Now I have PR3, very happy, rode 2000 km in every condition (snow, rain, highway, sun up to 30°C). Fine tyres.
