Pirelli Diablo Corsas or Bridgestone BT012 SS's are the favoured choices here ....

Also change the 190 section rear for a 180, helps the bike turn.

Hope that helps ...

And welcome.

Never tried corsa's but had BT010's and they were fantastic, changed them to 012's and then changed back to 010's
The 012 rear was great but the front felt a bit odd, it also seemed far more rounded and felt like it wanted to tuck all the time.
I do believe the new 014's are much much better again.

If is just for road use I would go for the standard Diablo as it has silica in it & is better in the wet.

Had 014\'s put on late last year

1600 miles later and the rear is on it's way out.
Not bad mileage for some of you I know but with my soft and gentle touch I normally get double that mileage from 010's

"1600 miles later and the rear is on it's way out."

Thats odd for 014`s they should last longer than 010`s or at worst a similar mileage.

Just changed a rear on a blade with 5000 miles on it all round riding.
