I like the wide choices out there in a 190 tire size. I was at dealer yesterday and the "R" was on display the rear tire is 190/50. the size difference must be NP for the bike?

Width Aspect Rim Inches Tall
200 55 17 25.66
190 55 17 25.23
190 50 17 24.48

I bought a new set of the RS10's.But I wonder you guys...what about something like a PR4?190/55?You think something like that would work well on our bikes.I say that for the mileage aspect,and of course...they grip very nicely.But maybe not enough for this bike?Thoughts?

I think the PR3,4 has a lot of siping for rain weather ...my choice is PR2 for mostly Dry on my C14 now. I used PR2's on my ZX14 and it would spin when I hit the quick shifter but I was commuting 200 miles once a week then so mileage was very good on them. I think the torque of the H2 would be hitting traction control a lot with any of the PR's I was thinking Pilot Powers cause Ive liked Michelin's from first time I tried them. I cooked the numbers one arm provided and interesting result... the 190/65 is 1.1 inches taller than 200/55. The 190/55 is a size I may try.

Width Aspect Rim Inches Tall
190 65 17 26.72
200 55 17 25.66
190 55 17 25.23
190 50 17 24.4

Silver I wouldn't put anything less than what's on there or the Perelli Super Corsa SV2.... I was a Michelin pilot TC2 and power three guy for sure but both the tires I just mentioned are way better for the power of this girl IMHO.... Don't sacrifice safety for longer tire life especially if your gonna flash her and put a system on......I might put the SV2's on my H2 but If not I'll buy these again for sure. And I will stay with the same size for sure.....

Yeah...I considered that as well...already bought a set of the OEM tires for this...rear one's already installed(two days ago)...the front had some good tread left...but it won't last too much longer I think.

A few different options out there for tyres - but all the traction control settings were designed around the Bridgestones RS10's so I am interested to see just how well other tyres fit in and work with the bike electronics.

One thing is, however, certain - the tyre manufacturers are going to love us and we are going to get to know our local tyre fitters pretty well

After 1300km I got some milimeters to the minimum. :/ 800km was slowly riding under 4000rpm ? this badass get a tirekiller.
Tomorrow I go in to the black forest to give the tire the rest. After that I will instal a new set from the BS and after this set I tried the new Michelin.
