"Put on my 2010 CBR600rr. Tires are great. Had Battle Ax's before. These tires are pretty sticky. Only Complaint is that I have a low speed vibration. Tires were properly balanced. But have great roll over and the transition from vertical to horizontal is nice, smooth, and responsive. Fantastic high speed function."
