Nothing more to say really, if it's been organised it'll be here.

Have a 17" with bt016 pro and an eighteen with bt090 pro for my HRC vf400f (65 hp). Which one offers the best grip driving on public road and mountain pass? Both 150/60. Tyre wear is not an issue.
Any comment's welcome preferably by competent persons driving hard.

H rated tyres are the way forwards and if I wanted to have confidence and there were no long motorway rides involved - then I would be rocking Supercorsas if possible.

BT016, when I had them on a ZX7r were shit- they felt too hard, not enough grip and terrifying at the Nurburgring when it was damp - though the damp Nordschleife is no fun!

I;ve not run anything else - apart from BY090 - and I always loved them.

The conti race attacks are good, theres also a H rated version they call the conti attack SM compound designed for supermotos but i use them on the NSR as do a few others and really rate them, also have a set on the GSXR400 with no complaints. Couldn't give a opinion on longevity but there sticky and heat up very quick
