Tyres for XTX...

My bike came as standard with Pirellis SuperCorsas and they lasted and performed well for me, only for road use mind. More recently after 2 sets (lasted about 10k kms) I paid a bit more and splashed out on the Michelin Road Pilot 3 which I was told would be a bit more like an intermediate tyre, so better in the wet (where the Pirellis never felt good and indeed let go gently more than once). The Michelins felt and performed REALLY well, shame that I sold the bike with the tyres only a few thousand km worn......
(Now sold on, sob) 2011 Blue XT660X with gold wheels, was 26,500 km.
Engine mods: K&N Stage 1 filter, DNA Stage 2 filter, snorkel removed, Kev fuel mod fitted.
Plus: smoked Puig screen, Yam aluminium sump guard, Yamaha / Acerbis handguards, Givi Trekker aluminium side cases, Leo Vince X3 cans plus Kev front fork mod and Fender Xtender. Just fitted Michelin Road Pilot 3 tyres.

SOLD the XTX for a Super Ten 1200. And just bought a Raptor 700 so staying on here for some tips....
