Re Michelin Pilot power

The S4r im getting soon has these tyres on I think,

link to site

pilot power

According to the site have good wet and dry grip, the lack of tread worries me, should I get these changed before I take delivery?

My 999 came with pilot race but changed them to the powers probably the best move , i have done 1000 miles or so and they look as good as new but more importantly have good grip and for me at least inspires confidence - not tried them in the wet but have been told they are ace.

I had the pilot sports on a S4,absolutly hated them!Put diablos on and it transformed it.Currently got BT014 on the 888,previously had Evo`s they were OK,been dissapointed with the 014`s,feel slippery seem to work well on the Gixers,as they`re fitted as standard.I`ve heard good reporrts about the Powers,but daren`t try `em after the experiance with the sports.

Just had these fitted this morning.

wasn't impressed by the Pilot Sports that came with the bike so changed the front as well as the rear for these new Powers. Could have got a better deal on Bt's or Diablos but have read some excellent press feedback on these, time will tell.

Sparkin sounds spot on mate.

I could have had Diablos or BT's cheaper but having read a few reports on these new Powers went for them instead.

Initial impressions are these are a big leap forward from the Pilot Sports that the bike came with.
Perhaps need to mess about a bit with pressures but overall so far delighted.

I had another BT014 fitted to the rear today,the first one lasted 2000miles,I would had had a pair of powers but the front still has a few thou left in it,couldn`t justify throwing it away.
