hi narula123 - they dont have the michelin PR3's. am specifically searching for PR'3s as they have an excellent grip on them. i have used peril diablo's and metzlers road tech z6. they are good but not as good as the PR3's.

i got stuck to PR'3s after riding my friends white busa for about 200 KM.

For those who can source tires from Mumbai here is a contact (Carl in Dadar) who can get you Michelin Pilot road 3's

I had a chat with him and my cousin is going to pick it up from him today 12-Mar.

Will post progress and price once the deal is done.

Mod's - am I allowed to post his number here? or should they be shared by PM only.

after 2 months of searching and contacts asking to pay upfront full amount (which I was not ready to risk) I finally settled for Dunlop sports max.

I ended up shelling out 28K for the set.

Looking forward to install them at end of this week. will post some pic's after that.

san9jay - Am still newbie status cant send PM's.

i have a contact in Mumbai if some one can met him personally and the get the tires he is the best bet. however he is expecting upfront payment and will expect to wait for 7-10 days.

Since i was not happy with leaving my cash i settled for the donlop sports max last saturday.

Update 1 - As mentioned in MArch i picked up dunlop sports max Front and rear tire
Rear lasted till 9k; the first sighting of meshed thread on the tire prompted me to get the tire replaced

Update 2 - Choose the Maxxis M6029 this time to get a better grip its claimed life of 9K km needs to be tested. Tires were changed on 25th dec 2013. Price 22600 Bangalore for a set.

Will post more info here as i put more KM on the bike.

Any contacts in Pune / Mumbai for sbk tyres? I need Michelins Pilot Power 2CTs for my 'blade: 120/70 ZR17 (58W) and 190/50 ZR17 (73W). No Pilot Road 2s, and no tyres that are older than 2015 manufactured. Am ok with paying a deposit for a fresh import. I can be reached at 9823106662.

Many thanks for reading this.

Try Yogesh (9890710064). He runs a small, efficient superbike workshop in the lane behind City Pride (Satara Road).
