Rubber: OEM not my favourite

I know ducati make these things run on diablos but I've never been a fan, I took them off of my last two ducati's and replaced them with Bridgy ST20s (best tyre ever made) Has anyone put ST20s on their Pani?
I know they advise against it as it stuffs up the calibration of the bike but has anyone given it a go?

I don't know if the ST20 that you are describing are the same as the Bridgestone S20 tires we get here in the USA. I have run those as well as other forum members with excellent results. About the same dry grip as the Q3 I have now but maybe a bit more feeling and bump absorption. DTC acts about 1-2 levels more aggressive than with OEM rubber and is easily adjusted to lower setting to compensate. Wear is a bit quicker than Q3 and much quicker than Supercorsa SP V2. They have just been replaced by the Bridgestone S20 Evo tires which are said to have same grip, longer wear and stiffer carcass, but I haven't tried it yet. About $15 cheaper a set than the already low priced Q3s, but available in a 200/55 rear. Someone needs to measure the actual circumference and width when mounted though.
