One day sale at my dealer and I can save some bucks

Which one for street riding? No telling me they are overkill for the street please and get the Pilot Road 3.

If I get the Pilot Powers I would have to go one size up in the rear. Rosso II stock size rear.

How much?

And check the date codes. Both are pretty old tires, so you may be getting leftover batches. I'd probably pick the cheapest one. Both are pretty similar.

Buy one part full price the 2nd is half off, so the front tire is half off.
And they only charge 60 for installation compared to over 100 at other dealers.

Cant beat Revzilla. However the 60 install fee makes up for it. BTW, this is Aurora Suzuki, I actually live in Seattle, but want to move to NM.

Aurora Suzuki bumps the price to of install if I buy the tires elsewhere. Was told 1.5 hrs of labor rate which is 130-150 bucks.
They are still cheaper than anyone else. Seattle area dealers want to rip your nuts off for tires.install prices.

I install my own or get it done trackside. Unfortunately I don't have the capabilities right now or I would offer to do yours.

The Rosso 2s would be my suggestion. Correct tire size mostly.

They have some REALLY slow mechanics...

Buy yourself a No Mar machine and start a side business.

They charge a ton, something like 450-500 last time I asked. This is for tires and install with tax.

That doesn't seem right. I priced out a set of Diablo Rosso Corsas with them (much more track/hypersport oriented tire than Rosso II's), and that came out to be like $375-380.

Thats for everything tax, install fees.

I just paid 351 for everything at Aurora Suzuki. Parts and Labor.

Went with the Rosso II. Cant wait to dump the stock IRC Roadwinners., way too touring of a tire.

You need a Cycle Gear. I paid $200 for a set of Bridgestone BT-016 and they only charge $20 per wheel. Have to be off the bike though. They always run sales. I used to get a set of the base Diablos when they offer them for under $200. And that's a 120/70-17 front and 180/55-17 rear. The 190/50-17 rear is $10 more.

Won't tell people what I pay locally for tyres (its a hell of a lot more) however I run the Rosso II's on my RSVR and I've yet to find them wanting as a road tyre which is exactly where I use the bike.

You guys in OZ pay a lot more for everything bike related it seems. There's a lot of Aussie members on Triumph675.net and the prices they pay for stuff is crazy.

Combination of a smaller market and our dollar hasn't been worth as much as it is now since it was floated.

The number we actually pay hasn't changed its just when you convert it to another countries that has changed a lot. I think a lot of importers are still running on hedged exchange rates especially for the euro and some are simply making a killing.

You can import tyres but anything over $1000 attracts a import duty, I don't go through many set of tyres anymore anyway and I tend to own obscure stuff so prefer to pump some cash through the local shop. That way they still might be there when I need specialist help.

Pilot Powers have been discontinued. I love my Rosso II (r)/Rosso (f) setup.
