    anyone gone from using the pilot road 5’s to the m7rr?
    My new bike has he Metzeler on and are brand new but I’ve always had/put Michelin’s on my bikes.
    Any tips on what to expect, quick to warm up, softer carcass(prefer the harder Michelin’s) rough mileage? Are they a more sporty dry weather tyre?any input would be helpful as will need to get a set before Xmas otherwise

    Cheers

    Not had them in the rain but they are really good in the dry.

    M7rr are a brilliant all rounder. You could hammer it round a dry track then ride it home in the pissing rain.

    High silica content in the compound gives good wet grip from the off.

    As a road tyre you cant go wrong

    If you can hang on there's a new M9RR coming out soon - it was revealed at EICMA. Depends how soon you need new tyres!

    Thanks mate but I’m not sure I want the m7’s that are on there as always used the pilot road 5,s and ideally looking for a comparison.

    M7rr best tyre I’ve used, mate. Crank it right over in the rain and stick like glue in the dry...

    Always put M7’s on my Blades

    i took the Dunflops off when brand new to replace with Metzlers

    i dont even consider another tyre, pretty instant grip, great in rain and cant fault when hot.

    id be going the other way taking the Michelins off

    I have these fitted and warm up a lot quicker than the b21’s I had on but I’m not sure if it me or the tyres but I feel they track a lot

    They shouldn't feel like that Bazza...I must have had 10+ sets of them up to now and they're superb in most conditions as others have said. I run anything between 36/36 and 36/40...sometimes in summer they've dropped to 33/33 and they run great at all these pressures. I'd get the wheels off and give it all a good check over if I were you.

    :eek::eek::eek: 10 sets!!

    That would be the best recommendation anyone could get for tyres.

    I'll defo use them on my next tyre change - I think the 954 will love them instead of my usual Pirelli Rosso IIs. Then I will evaluate whether to use them instead of Super Corsas - which I really love.

    True, and that is a problem with multiple bikes because tyres go off before they're even half worn!:rolleyes:
