Don't listen to this guy. He is super slow and has no clue what he is talking about.

All kidding aside, I have heard great things. I run the Pirelli SC2 up front and superbike pro out rear and really like them too. But depending on your pace, you may not like the superbike pros.

Agreed.

For anyone running less than a mid-pack Advanced track-day group pace, the Q3 will actually provide more grip. It will heat up faster, retain its heat easier and isn't affected by heat cycles.

I have both raced my 899 and done lots of trackday and low speed instructing on my 899. I run Dunlop slicks exclusively on all my track bikes, and they have performed and lasted wonderfully.

Medium + is fine for most trackday riding. When you go down to the Medium rear, you have to have your setup correct, or else you may just eat it up quickly.
