    Special Notes:

    • When selecting new motorcycle tires, be sure they meet the requirements of your motorcycle and its expected usage.

      SAFETY

      Inspect and check tire pressure often. This is the most important tire-maintenance function you can perform. Refer to your machine's documentation for proper maintenance. Always give tires a gentle "run-in" period of 100 miles to get the feel of new tires--this means they should not be subjected to maximum power, abrupt lean-over, hard cornering, etc. Always match the front and rear tires for optimal handling, safety and performance. Mixing radials, or mixing radials with bias or belted-bias tires, may adversely affect handling and stability.

      WARNING

      The charts and information on this page do not imply interchangeability. Consult your machine's manual to determine correct replacements, clearances, compatibility and stability, load-bearing capacity, speed rating, radial vs. non-radial, pattern and tread compound requirements, inflation recommendations and front-to-rear tire matching. Wrong selection can result in tire failure or loss of control with serious injury or death.

    Great track day or mountain carving tire
    I was stuck on another major brand for a while because of the cost and I go through tires pretty fast. I do a lot of track days and go to the mountains (Deals Gap) often. My new BMW S1000RR came with these tires stock and I was impressed not only with how the handled but how long they last. The price is a lot higher then the other brand but I can enjoy more sessions out on the track before I start to lose enough traction to call it quits for the day. I even did a track day on a set of these and rode on them back home for another 1000 miles before I swapped them out. If I'm not on slicks I will run the K3.

    Doesn’t last very long.
    Not the longest lasting but the price is right. Too bad they don’t last otherwise when paired up with the rear they would be five stars across the board. No experience in the wet so I can’t rate this tire.

    Best front aggressive street tire on the market
    Best handling front aggressive street tire you can buy for dry condition, K3 warms up fast and sticks, Very predictable, I've ridden Q3 and K3 turn in better and is stickier, Also I've ridden K2 and its an overkill for the street better for track use. Expect to get 2500-3000 mile on it.
