This cheered me up - a Michelin Pilot Sport HPX rear tire (200/50/ZR17) for $100 here -http://www.dtmaonline.com - ordered last night, shipping today. ****, may as well get this done while the "rebuild" is underway. Almost 4,500 on the odo with the stock Dunlop. - Jim

From what I've read in this forum it's sticky first couple hundred miles. One good burnout should do the trick. (just kidding....!) - Jim

IMHO the Sport HPX is a wonderful tire. Way more sticky than the stock Dunlop. Talked with the DMTA tech about front end washout while they installed the new HPX... just remember that your front tire is not as sticky. Scuffed it up on cloverleaf intersections the day I purchased it. Found that 37 to 38 psi riding one-up does the best for me...cloverleaf testing. Took the bike up into the hills the next weekend and pushed it a bit. I'm still grinning! Lucky for me that DMTA is about a 15 min drive from my house. Enjoy!

Hehehehe, yeah I got a big helping of whoopazz last week. While I was figuring out how to go foward Elviss' robe was flowin' in the wind. Next time I'm grabbing it and having him tug me along for the first few feet then I'll whoop his azz. [/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]
As he put all that HP don't do no good unless you can put it to the pavement, I sure looked cool going sideways without dumping the clutch though.[/emoticons/emotion-4.gif]

Ya, I am running a HPX right now also. It is definitely the best tire I have tried yet. Sticks better under any / all conditions than any other tire I've tried so far. I am sure there is something better out there, there always is, but my next tire will be another HPX.

NO. Michelin does not make an HPX that will fit on the front of the Warrior.[V] At least not that I have been able to find and I have searched and searched and searched .....

I've been bigtime into burnouts with 8k miles and am on the 3rd tire, ready for number 4. Powerbraking is for *****'s.

Somebody's got to make a better 200 tire for the Warrior than the Michelin, which I'm sure are great tires. I don't do French these days.
