I tried all sorts but never really got over 1500 / 2k out of the back on my 690 SMC sounds about right to me , I know that's not much help :D

michelin pilot pure 2ct, great grip on the edges and harder compound in the middle, done 1300miles and still good and round

just fitted pilot power 2ct's to mine. loved the original BT090's but rear was shagged after 1000 miles.

only put about 80 miles on the 2cts and am so far very impressed with them. i opted for a pair.

the compounds are the same for the pilot power and pilot pure, just the areas of the soft compound are greater on the pures.

came down to price for me. found some on ebay (front and rear) brand new for 150.

I've just started using the BT016 and feels as good as the BT090 so far. Triple compound should get a lot more miles too.

i fitted an 016 after the original 090 wore out. prefer the feel of the 016 and thought it would last longer but after 1200 miles it's showing serious signs of wear and won't last much longer!

Happy with Corsa Diablo Rosso, new 2 compounds from Pirelli (they say 3 compounds but that's marketing, the two sides are made of the same).
