Pilot powers work really good for me! I had 020's before them and they are way more grippy, ez turn in because of their pointyness and in corners they have so much surface to grip with the feeling is rocksolid! But then again I've only got experience with 020's.. and on a Bandit 600 (which scraped pegs on a daily basis)!
Ow and in the wet they feel quite good as well! (pilot power)
I have the BT-014's on my bike and it is track only. So far I have 4-5 track days on them and they're wearing well. Grip has been fine (I ride in the intermediate group). I always hear great things about the Pilot Powers, but no FHE.
i know it's not on the list but i've heard good things about avon tires.
p.s. i have bridgestone battleaxe bt56 on the rear and a michilene pilot on the front and i'm not happy i noticed that they skid alot
Had the BT014's on my TLS first, they were a decent tire had good wear too. Then I got the Pilot Powers and wow what a diffrence. The Powers stick better and give better feedback, I feel more in touch with the road and they seem to turn in quicker.
