Which tires are best for the 954. I have michelin pilot at the moment.

Also i only need front tire, is it ok to mix or should i stick to same brand?

P.s. I only do road not track.

Tires ,if you believe all the hype will only work properly if they are in a matched pair.
Crap.
Personally i would at least keep the same usage type.
But mixing is ok.
Take it easy at first to check how they combine.

well the way im doin wit tyres is pilot power 2ct front and pilot road 2 at the back because pilot powers at the rear were only lastin 2000 miles....i should hopefully get 4000 miles outta polit road 2 at rear only trade off is the bike dosnt steer as fast if u had pilot power 2ct at rear....**** puttin on tyres every 2000 miles at 180 a pop.

My buddy has been sporting bt-015s on hsi Gixxer 1000. I have riden his bike and like the feel of them and am going to put them on my 954. Right now I am running m3s and they seem ok but am not impressed overall with how they come out of a corner.

I'm currently running BT014s on the 'blade but I think Bridgestone have stoppped production of that specific type.

I think 020's have replaced them though :idunno:
no dude bt 016 replaced them....ok tyre bt 014 bit soft in middle and not great in wet.

:thumb: I stand corrected.

Haven't had many problems with mine so far, have held up quite well (even in wet) but I would suggest the BT016 would be a better tyre (as it did replace the 014s...)
