Hi Mick,

thanks for the info. We have the same recall here in Germany.

But as this tyre (Pilot Power) normally is for racetrack use only, it probably doesn´t concern Bulldog riders..Although I remember someone who had it on his dog at least for a short time (who was it??)
As this tyre needs a lot of pre-heating to work properly, is very slippery in the wet and wears out a lot faster than expected, he got rid of it very soon..

Thanks anyway

Axman

Hi Mick + Axel :wave:
Waylander tried the PP on his Bulldog, but he had no fun for a long time, 'cause the PP rubbered down in few thousands km's.
So now he is driving the PR again and I think it's quite allright.
On faster bikes the PP is a very good pneu, but if there is a bike with lower hp but more Nm's the PP is loosing! :twisted: :twisted:

Axel, the PP is heating very quickly for maybe 10 Km's, and so he don't need pre-heating on german dry streets!
Dajana had a PP on the golden ZR-7. The PP is on dry roads like chewing-gum on the boots! But on rainy streets he looses against the PR, of course same in winter! :twisted:

I hope we will see us again soon! :roll:

Best regards :wave:
Wolf
