andy, i fitted metzler sporttec m1's (120/65 front, 190/50 rear) when my dragon corsas wore out. my first outing was a couple of track days at barber in alabama and i was really pleased with the tires. they warmed up quickly and have a really nice feel with gobs of stick. TP's were 30 psi front & 31 psi rear. i'm no expert, but i don't think that you'd be disappointed. ted

Hello Andy. I went with the same Sportecs as the person above. I did however, switch to a 180/55/17 rear however. It definitely makes the motorcycle more nimble from side to side than the 190 that came on my machine stock. You should definitely give the 180 a try...you can thank me later as I have thanked the guy who told me to try it out. Good luck.

M-1's, 120/70front and 180 in rear. It turns the bike into what it's meant to be. :)
