Excellent SPORT touring Tire

Wolf - November 29, 2020

I am on my 3rd set on my Kawasaki ZX14. I have run Michelin Road tires since they were called Macadams back in the early 2000s. I have run Pilot Roads 2,3,4 and now the Road 5. That said, I run the 190/55 in the back as opposed to the OEM size of 190/50. I also do not run the "normal" ZX14 tire pressure of 42/42psi. I do a lot of backroads so about half curves and half straight aways. I now run 36/34 alone and when I have a passenger 38/36. I just replaced the last set and they wore completely even. I especially like the solid rubber sides of the Road 5 as they really give me good predicable grip in the corners. My ZX14 is set up with Corbin seat and saddlebags (Beetlebags) and I usually ride with a pillion on board. I wish Michelin made the Road 5 GT version in a 190/55.

Poor front tire treadlife

Mr 36654 - October 29, 2020

I truly enjoyed the traction and control of the Road 5's, but the front tire tread life was only 5600-miles. The rear looks good for another 2000-miles. I've been running Pilot Roads since the first or second generation and this is the first I've been disappointed.

Not for Kawasaki 1400 Concours

Asshole - October 29, 2020

What I tried to order were the GT version but the shop I got the tires from put on the non GT which may have been the reason for a rear tire blowout? Rode several hundred miles 2 up with medium load out and was great in the twisties and cruising. I did have a rear tire blowout on the tread with plenty of tread left. It was a weird place for a blow out I saw no reason for it. I did not feel that I hit anything to cut the tire. I had just made a fast left onto the freeway and within 100 yds of getting on the freeway the rear end got way to loose. I was able to keep it up and pull over and only then did I really notice i did not have the gt pilots. I know. But anyway another pilot 5 went on and now i am warry of riding 2 up any more because of the load ratings. Front tire wear little cupping after some time. I'm sorry i do not know the mileage I'm guessing 4k miles?? Will be working on wearing these out and new gt's here in november when you can ride in arizona and not burst into flames from the heat.they are great in the wet i must say riding in the heaviest rain ive ever seen tires were great wet.
