Any opinions?

Thanks

Maybe he's running a full size spare... in the factory location

My bike had some OEM version of the Pirelli Super Corsa's or some crap like that on it when i bought it and I never liked the feel of the front, never inspired much confidence for me. I switched to a set of Michellin Pilot Power 2cts for the current set and I have LOVED them. I would reccomend them for sure simply based on personal feel. For me they have seemed much more stable and provide more feel at the front end on varying road surfaces you encounter in normal spirited road riding. I will buy another set when these are done.

I recommend Michelin Pilot Power. Read a lot of great reviews before I put them on my Ducati.

Out of the ones you listed I would run the Diablo Rosso II.

I am currently running Battlax BT016 on my bike and have nothing but good things to say about them.

The Michelin PP's are also a good choice.

Michelin all the way for a sport bike . I have ran pilots before the pilot "power" was even a thing. Great tire. I run the powers now. no complaints

Sorry , i know this wasnt one of your choices you threw out there but i have to agree with the other guys here.

for chains and sprocket check out motomummy.com , great customer service, and the best prices. I would definitely go with Driven for the sprockets, and i like EK for chains, the MVXZ specifically. They make a super strong chain (520 conversion on a 1000) and have a great reputation.
Definitely save the money and do the sprocket job yourself. Also you can change your gearing if you desire for quicker acceleration (in turn takes down top speed, so if your on the highway alot this may not be a great idea).

That stupid orange chain in my sig is a MVXZ by the way

Pilot Power (PP) and Pilot Power 2CT are same, except for 2CT have softer rubber on the edges of the tires.

If you are going to track the bike, look at Power Pure's. They have a wider band of softer rubber on the sides. If you are an aggressive street rider, and use your tires right up to the edge, go for the 2CT. If you are a casual street rider and don't make use of the full edge of the tire, PP's will be fine.

^ true story. i definitely like the concept of harder rubber in the center for speed and softer on the outsides for cornering.
