I am running Diablo Corsa's, very good IMO. Ran with some German dude's this weekend and one of them had Pilot Power's on his R1. They held up very good also. He did not lowside right in front of me while in the turns, so I think the Pilot Power's stick pretty good as well, but have never personally ran on them. I ask the German dude what he thought about the Powers and he said they are a very good tire and the Pilot Sports (older version) are shit (his exact words) then again his racing team is sponsored by Michilin so I think he is biased, to run the Power's for street setup and then run the Michilin race at the track.

I have only ran the Corsa's on the street so far. I have no personal feedback about them on the track yet.

I have the 02 - 1000 so it is the same bike.
