I had BT 57's from new and changed to Pilot 2's as soon as poss. They changed the bike dramatically.....it now corners and feels like a decent bike should!

Don't take life too serious. You'll never escape it alive anyway.

 :0461: 100% had mine fitted on Saturday and had a glorious 5 hours on them on Sunday. First wet ride was this morning and for the first time since I bought the bike I don't feel like the bike is gonna dissappear from under me on every bend.

Just found this article - not sure whether these are the same tyres as I have Avon Storms.


Michelin has launched a campaign to recall its Pilot Power 2CT and Pilot Power 120/70 ZR 17 front motorcycle tyres with “Made in France” markings. An examination of these tyres showed a possible defect in the tread due to a manufacturing irregularity. No cases of pressure loss have been reported and no accidents have occurred.

Because customer safety is its primary concern, Michelin has decided as a precaution to replace certain 120/70 ZR 17 Michelin Pilot Power 2CT and Michelin Pilot Power front tyres, which can be identified by the following markings on the sidewall:

* a “Made in France” label
* DOT 6UCW 980T or DOT 6UCW 979T

These tyres will no longer be sold by dealers.

A special telephone number for consumers has been set up to provide customers with information about the campaign and will be operational on Monday 18 June from 8.30 a.m.

The Pilot Powers and Pilot Road 2 are different.
