Anyone currently running a 200/60 Rear?
on: January 15, 2021, 10:49:11 PM
After a few years running Michelin Power RS+ and Power GP I quite fancy giving Dunlops a try next, specifically the D213 GP Pro.

Problem is, they only come in a 180 section or a 200/60 section.

Is anyone currently running a 200/60 section tyre on their bike? And if so has it thrown any errors or caused any other problems?

Not as tall but Iíve been running a 200/55 rear with zero issues both track & street. Pirelli Corso 3ís and stick like glue in my opinion.  Zero codes thrown at around 3k miles :028:  I plan on sticking with this size for a while.

I've run Pirelli SC0 and SC1 race tires in a 200/60.  They also grow in diameter as speeds get higher.  This is a feature, not a bug.
The rear hugger has to be removed, but otherwise there are no problems at all.

Spot on, Cheers Miles  :152:

I'll likely give them a try and see how i get on with them.
