Tires???

Has anyone used the Dunlop Q2 rather than the Pirelli's?

Yes. 190/55. Adjust your TC. Ride happy. Mo moneyz in your pockets. Good day.

Adjust Traction control down or up? or is this subjective and based on feel. I'm changing to Bridgestone s20's next week and aspect ratio is 50. my understanding is traction control at the same settins would intervene more?

Sir, I am no professor on this issue, please refer the TC question to the "Truth about tires" thread.

If you're strictly a street rider, the TC issue wont matter. It will matter when you're at a 45 degree lean angle mid apex at 75% throttle.

Put tyres on...ride it..if TC is cutting in too easy, turn it down...I went from 4 to 2 and it was fine with the 190... That's with michelins!

Im a die hard Michenlin pilot power 2ct guy. Would there be any issue with these on the Duke in a 190? I'm not a track guy and I love the traction and the wear they offer on my gixer 1000 and busa.

I would at least retain the profile of a 55, but that is just me.

I'm running some 125/80/17 and 200/55/17 dunlop USA slicks on the Pani Sunday @ Road Atlanta. I will let you know how it goes my TC map is stock. I normally run TC on 2, but I'll play with 1 and see how it differs
Thanks from revvedup
