Dunlop D212 GP Pro Reviews (newest first) - Page 1

Given 87% while driving a Honda CBR1000RR10 (190/55 R17) on a combination of roads for 3,000 spirited miles
I've been running the Dunlop D212 GP Pro's on the front and rear for the past 18 months or so on the street and they are the best tyres that I have had on my '09 Honda cbr1000 rr. At first I was running 34psi in the front & 32psi in the rear and I was more than happy with the grip front and rear, my bike felt like it was on rails most of the time, no matter how good or bad the road surface. I ride my bike everyday and the tyres get a decent work out on most days where traffic & road conditions permit but I still get at least 3000 k's front and rear on one set I got 4500k's out of the rear and almost 5000 from the front due to a lot of commuting for 3 -4 months to work & back and not as much riding in the hills. I have recently tried lowering the tyre pressures to 30 -32psi in the front depending on road temp and 25 - 28 in the rear and they perform even better, giving me plenty of confidence going hard into a turn on bumpy or uneven surface. The set I have on now need replacing, 0 tread on the rear and it's still gripping better than some other new tyres that I've had in the past! Do yourself a favour and get a set I'm running 3's on the front and 4's on the back and I'm 5'9 weigh 82kg's my bike run's a 15t front sprocket & Alum 43t rear with a 520 chain and with the D212 rear tyre it powers out of tight or fast bends incredibly fast by getting the power to the ground with heaps of grip and very little wheel spin!
