Looking For New Tires

Hey everyone, I've strolled through these forums for a while now, but decided to finally make an account.

I have a 2013 Daytona 675R with some pretty old Dunlop Sportmax Q3s that came on the bike when I bought it 2 years ago. They've served me fairly well up until now, but are over 4 years old and the tread is getting pretty slim so with the season starting back up I'm looking to get new tires. Up to this point I've only been a road warrior in canyons and mountains, but really want to do at least a few track days this year. I also live in Northen Utah so unless it's the middle of summer, it's most likely below 60 degrees outside. I generally don't ride when it rains or anything either so I'm not too worried about that. I've been looking at the Q3 plus and Supercorsa v3 but hear they take a while to warm up and never get to proper temp on the road. I also hear the M7RRs are really good for cold weather which is a huge plus for me.

Basically to sum it all up, I'd like a tire focused mainly for road use that can do a handfull of track days but also doesn't turn into a pair of rocks when it's cold out. Anyone have suggestions with their experience they would be willing to share with me?

The Q3+ warms up super fast. You can't beat a tire for road and track duty for it's price.

I strongly recommend the Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa 2
I purchased a set to replace my old Rosso Corsas and I could not be happier with the performance. They are a major upgrade from the old corsas and are designed for the kind of riding you describe.
Silica based compound in the mid sections give you great traction when upright and SC track compounds on the shoulders are sticky as glue in the corners.

Warm up is super fast
Amazing grip
Bike is very eager to lean
Looks fantastic
Tread wear is very good

They are better and cheaper than supercorsas for the road.
I strongly recommend these.


I know itís not centered but this is the tread after ~ 7,000 miles of aggressive riding. They can go another 6-7k easy.

Go look at your current tires. If you still have chicken strips in the back, then ANY decent touring tire is more than adequate for your needs. You're not pushing hard enough to go beyond the capacity of the tire. If you have no chicken strips in the back, but have them in the front, then I second the Q3+'s. You're not going to find a better dual use tire for the cost. By the second lap on the track (unless it's a pretty cold day) they're ready for abuse. If you have no chicken strips in the front, then it doesn't matter what tire you choose because you clearly don't like life if you're riding like that on the streets.

The sooner you introduce motorcycles into your children's lives, the less likely they'll have money for drugs, alcohol and cigarettes as teenagers.

Q3Plus is the tire of choice for YCRS, Rickdays and California super bike school. Only when you start looking at A group times do they start to give up. Pirelli is what I would get if you are fast enough to have the tire "talk" to you. most tires on the market are fantastic today anyway.
