  • Pilot Power 2CT

    Well, after wearing out the Bridgestone 015's factory fitted to my gix, it was time for some new boots. I have run Pilot Power's on my ZX7R and Bandit and knew what the grip, feel, feedback and ride were like so I thought what the hell, lets fit the 2CT's this time.

    I have only done 60kms on them so far but man what a difference. The feel and feedback these tyres give is tremendous. I can only describe the grip as very confidence inspiring.

    I am yet to try them out on a country run or on the track but with the feel they gave putting around the city yesterday I am sure they will be fine.

    At $540 fitted (120/70 front and a 190/50 rear) they are a little more expensive than the single compound pilot power's but IMHO they premium is worth it.

    Thumbs up to Craig at the Motorcycle Pitstop for fitting them for me, the discount on the new tank pad and washing my bike for me too.

    just ignore the fact i got over 9000k's to the last set which included several burnouts and the drags

    the dunlop one on now (they had no 2ct's in stock and i needed a tire right then) has done just over 3000k's and is down to the wear markers already

      The more i read and the more recommendations the more im leaning towards these for my next set. 9500ks out of my current pilot roads but they're seriously less than confidence inspiring.

        i know with the 2ct's i had on wheelies in the wet were okay same as scraping the little wing things on the fairing.

        personally i thought they were friggin awesome tyres, definately making sure next time i get them again (pity they dont make a 200 one though) i can thouroghly reccommend them, btw the front tyre on mine still has a huge amount of tread left and that came from sydney (ie on the bike) and still has a fairly normal profile.

          These puppies have a 53 degree lean angle in the dry, one of the best tyres I have ever used.
          It's a push to get right to the edge on the rear.

            i killed a rear 2ct in 3 weeks.

            GREAT long lasting tyre!

            Mags just got a pair on the GSR.

              Drags? Track Days? General hoonery?

                    2ct rear and power front would be a great combo

                      I hear ya with regards to Dunlops wearing out quick. Less than 2000k's (1000 which was run in period) and the Dunlop OEM's on the Bandit are already looking pretty worse for wear. Will be fitting 2CT's once I wear these suckers out.

                        Have heard they dont like to be pushed hard on the track, get squirmy
                        after a while.

                          no dramas in the wet at all, very well planted and plenty of grip. still manage to lean over a fair way in the wet and the front wheel can still go skywards with out any dramas keep in mind its a heavy bike plus a fat bastard riding it lol

                            Damned impressed with what I've seen of these - what took me 20s to destroy a Pilot Power, Davey did for an hour or more and still road away with heaps of meat on the back.

                            Next tyre combination will be the power(front) and road 2ct (rear)...

                              Why go for mismatched tyres? The front 2ct's are sticky as all hell and are dual compound also.
