Diablo Corsa 3s

After removing the Dunlop 209GP tyres that I had fitted and was not confident on I have now fitted the new Pirelli Diablo Corsa 3s and in my opinion it has totally transformed the bike into what it should be !

From the first hundred yards down the road I could feel the difference, no tracking any ridges or white lines and no weaving with a sidewind,no wanting to drop at every slight corner, they just felt right from the start.

Within 15 minutes I felt as confident on a bike as I have ever been, the levels of grip seem outstanding and the bike felt so rock solid.

On the way back from my run out I used my favourite road and the bike never moved an inch from where it was placed and it was thoroughly tested !! and this was without any rear brake at all as since I fitted an underslung caliper I cannot get any pedal.

I would not hesitate in recommending these tyres to anyone who needs replacements, you will not be dissapointed.

I got them from a guy who knows a guy sort of thing !

They had been 'tested' if you can call it that for 5 - 10 minutes then removed before adjustments were made to the bike then a new set was fitted.
I got them for 100 delivered, he has none at the moment but is receiving some more this week, I think they were all 180 rears he had though.

If I hear from him I will U2U you.

I've been using Diablo Corsa's for a few years now. What's the "3" all about? Is that a different version?

If you're finding it difficult to get hold of them, try this lot - they deliver to you too:

They are Pirellis version of the dual compound craze that every manufacture is now producing, they really are very good, I loved my Diablo Corsas and these are even better.
