      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.

    A Top Five Jam
    So I'm a Bridgestone sport tire lover. They make sense to me. They complete me. But with my 2014 Triumph Speed Triple I wasn't getting the mileage I've come to expect from them (with my other bikes) so I bit the bullet and branched out. Gotta be honest with you, I was a little bit nervous to try a sport tour tire because I figured there would be a trade off that would be super noticeable. I will buy these tires again when they wear out because they really are awesome! Control, wearability, it's all there! Would I take them to the track? No. But for sport street riding they are more than capable to get the job done. Love 'em.

    Second set for me. Great tread life, reaction in rain, and can ride 'em to the edges on my Ducati.

    The best touring tire
    I have had three sets of these now with the average tread life being around 10,000 miles. Great handling and grip make this tire stand out when it comes to touring and performance.

    Put a 1000 miles on the tire this weekend, it appears to have good tread wear, and certainly handles well.

    Great tire
    After riding around on this tire for about 400 miles and so far they are great, I haven't had any issues with it slipping or skipping. The profile seems neutral and it dips into corners very smoothly and is easily predictable. Haven't had a chance to test them in wet weather so I can't say much about that. Over all for my kind of riding (Twisties and commuting) it does everything that I need from a tire.

    By far this the best tire I have ever used on my FJR 2008. Have used the Pilot Road and the P2. Handling and tire wear is the best I have ever experienced!

    I ride a Buell Ulysses and I'm happy with the tire so far. I've only put about 200 miles on it. Haven't had a chance yet to really push the tire to see how it handles. I hope the claims of longer lasting tire life is true, that's why I bought this tire instead of the Pilot Power 2.

    difference between pilot road 4 and pilot road 4 GT?
    Corey L on May 8, 2017
    Michelin Pilot Road 4 Radial Rear Motorcycle Tire
    Michelin Pilot Road 4 Radial Rear Motorcycle Tire
    Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT Radial Rear Motorcycle Tire
    Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT Radial Rear Motorcycle Tire
    BEST ANSWER: The difference is the load rating, we run the GTs on our FJR1300s because we run them loaded quite a bit. My wife did run the PR4 on her '13 and didn't have a problem, but we've since decided the heavier sidewalls is a good deal for us. Our primary reasons for running PR4/PR4GTs is tire longevity (we get 10 to 13k per set), and WET surface traction because we live on Oregon's South Coast. Great tires!
