New tyre info

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' at netrider.net.au started by Gavman, May 25, 2007.

  1. Picked up my new/secondhand bike tonight and for the RWC the previous owner put set of Dunlop SportsMax GPR100.
    Just hoping to get some feedback on what there like - good or bad ?

    cheers Gavin

  2. Who cares if they're new, that's $500 saved for further down the track!!

  3. Gavman, I've used gpr100's in the past and found them to be a great compromise between very good grip and longevity.

    Without being a track oriented tyre, they're on the stickier side of road tyres. The set on my VFR400 lasted 6000 km's (front longer) which i consider a good life for a sticky tyre.

    They're the replacement for the dunlop gpr80, I did a track day on a set of these and had no problems getting my knee down with them.

    So, good score!

  4. Don't get me wrong......I am wrapt to have new tyres on the bike.
    My only concern is... not having used these particular tyres before.
    How do they compare to say a Pilot Road ? Which I have used.

    cheers Gavin

  5. The feel will be a personal thing, dunlops are my personal favourite.

    Overall grip will be similar to pilot roads, I would guess the dunlops may have a quicker warm up time.

    You just need to spend some quality time with them, don't be afraid to push them!
