I call dibs on first pick of parts you're selling after you wreck your bike on the street.Have a 500 miles on the 2cts comming from stock qualifiers, i fer sure think the turn in is much quicker with 2cts, easily noticable.
I also think the dual compound is noticable as well, im not sure i like it so much. went and did some twisties the other day, and could feel the back slipping when not all the way leaned in and giving some throttle, didnt have that problem before lol
havent done twisties at 100% speed yet either, little too cold at night still :banghead:
the main compound on the 2ct is the same as the original pilot powers right?
If you wouldn't mind, could you explain how it feels different? I have a set of the 2ct tires in my room waiting to be mounted and balanced. Do you like them so far?
that's what i thought too when i switch from the Pilot Power to Power Race tires, as if the Pilot Power isn't already got a fast turn in the Power Race tires have a lot quicker turn in & falls into lean quicker, in short the Power Race tires don't have a slow transition from straight up to full lean like the other tires, Michelin prefers it this way & is geared towards riders that like that kind of characteristic in their bikes.Turn in is much quicker than the bt016's. Bike feels a little less stable, but more nimble. I just have to get used to them. I haven't gone riding in the canyons yet, so I can't give any feedback on the cornering. I don't even have 100 miles on them.
I agree, coming from qualifiers for the past 3 years I threw on a set of 2ct's that I got for cheap. Big difference in turn in. I get more confidence with the 2ct's than the qualifiers too. I've put about 3k on them so far. I've been told the center is the same compound as the regular PP's so my next tire will just be the regulars. I don't get all the way over in the street anyways.Have a 500 miles on the 2cts comming from stock qualifiers, i fer sure think the turn in is much quicker with 2cts, easily noticable.
I don't remember feeling much difference in turn in when switching from dunlops to bridgestone. My Bt's were actually worn on the sides and not the center, so they looked more triangular, not flat. I don't commute much. Mostly canyons on the weekends. The PP's definately feel like they have a quicker turn in than the Bt's.completely used 016's and brand new 016's will feel really different too, cause the profile on an old tire is warn flat, a new tire will handle much better,... it will almost feel like it is falling into the corners
I used Power One few times before and also noticed that the bike was less stable. It caused a big tankslapper at a corner that I haven't had any problem before with other tires. After the crash, I lowered the front end to try to stablised it but still cannot get rid of the head shake. I finally decided to use BT003 and shake was gone.Turn in is much quicker than the bt016's.
