    not sure about tread depth ,but just replaced mine,just over 2000mls and it was past wear limits!few things ive noticed about 2ct's they track bad road surfaces,dont like reduced pressures on the road, plenty of grip but when on its ear i noticed there is an unnerving drop onto the edge of the tyre,only really noticed it when feeling for a knee down,but it is a bit strange like you've lost grip,

    Re: Michelin Pilot Powers 2CTs, couple of questions

    There might be some info in here http://www.michelin.co.uk/motorcycles/m ... -power-2ct
    I had these fitted to my Blade and they were good in the wet and dry, but mileage wise you'll be lucky to get 3000 'depending on how you ride you bike'.
    I got around 2500/2800 because of the road surface on the west coast of Scotland being sooooo rough.
    I didn't have the same feeling GR7 had, so I can't comment on what was happening with his tyre's.

    Re: Michelin Pilot Powers 2CTs, couple of questions

    I have searched the Michelin site, but no information on tread depth

    I've all ready got 2ct's on,loads of meat still on them,just trying to work how many miles I've got left on them, I fancy a longish ride on the CB before Le Mans

    The rear on a CB does feel a bit vague with the 2ct, I love them on the gixer, but i get the impression the weight of the CB and guessing the softish walls don't quite work, when pushed

    but, 2,000 miles

    I remember those west coast roads well

    Get some Michelin 'Power Pures' very nice feel to them, Nice grip so far even if I have got chicken strips but I would buy them again. Only dry weather riden.

    Re: Michelin Pilot Powers 2CTs, couple of questions

    Geez, dunno what you guys are doing. I put 2ct pilot powers on my 750 gixxer k8 and when I traded it in for the cb it still had a fair bit left on it and had covered 4000 miles.I know what you're thinking but I don't pootle. It had no chicken strips cause I like to use all of what I pay for lol. I aim for about 4000 miles on a rear and generally get there. Trick is not to gun it from the off cause you tend to leave rubber on the fairing of your mates bike behind you but to be smooth. And lets face it with the power of a modern bike it's not long till you're up to silly speeds again.

    Ah but, LATE and RBD have been on Scottish roads and I think LATE is thinking of another trip up North again this year.
    If he does so, then BELIEVE ME, he needs a good set of tyres on his bike when riding the West Coast of Scotland 'but he knows this'.

    For those that have not been up the west way; the roads are made with 2-3" stone chip, not your usual 1" stone chip but by fcuk it grips

    and if my tyre ends up like RBD's, I'll be more than happy, means I've had a good dry trip

    No, it means your ANOTHER tight ass Englander that won't stick his hands in his pocket to buy a new set of tyres that will last the trip
    They say the Scottish are tight with their money it's the white settlers up here that give us that bad rep
