Best Tyres for 2010 fireblade

Hi I just got my new blade about 6 months ago scrubbed in the Tyres done about 1000 miles so far and lost the front end when I was out for a run the other day,there is no explanation how this happened I was not pushing to hard was not well over it was dry and no oil on the road I did manage however to keep the bike up by thrusting my foot onto the Tarmac however the Tyres that are on the bike is Dunlop qualifiers are these good enough Tyres or are that the cheapest that the manufacturer put on if so what would anybody recommend for the bike.P.s this is my 3rd blade so not a new rider to them

Ive got an 05 1000rr with Dunlop Qualies on and they stick like s%*t to a blanket, always used Bridgestone 010's on my old blade which were also good.

Have an ask round at your local bike meet and see who's running what, is that the only moment youve had with them if so could have just run over something???

Re: Best Tyres for 2010 fireblade

qualifiers II have been highly rated in tests.
If you have been having high ambient temp as we have been in the south, it is possible the tar on the roads is getting soft. Maybe this!
They may use cheaper tyres but not something that is dangerous in normal road use

I run Michelin Pilot Power 2CT's on my 954 and my buddy runs Bridgestone BT016's on his 929. Both are great tires.

Re: Best Tyres for 2010 fireblade

without sounding like a moron, all tyres are pretty much perfect for the bike, presuming that they are sport / sport touring tyres. do you honestly think they would invest millions upon millions to give you a tyre that couldnt even handle the road ?

if your losing the front end then it is extremely more than likely that you were either not hanging off the bike at all, so there it was too top heavy, or you hit soft tar / gravel, there is no possible way that you could push dunlop qualifiers to the limit on the roads.. just no.

get whatever tyres the manufacturers advise, they at the end of the day, know ALOT more about the bike and tyres than you do.

Re: Best Tyres for 2010 fireblade

Tyre choice is an often-debated subject, and most people in the debate recommend something different..... my conclusion from this has been for some time that pretty much any modern tyre will be more than up to the job. It comes down to personal preference.

Tyres don't last too long, why not just try something else and find out for yourself? Worst case, if you don't like them try something else next time.
