Got home from a ride the other day and woke up in the morning to ride (beautiful friggen day!) and found that the rear tire was completely flat.
After some inspection I found an inch long gash in the middle of the tire! I dont know how this happened, could it have been caused by a rock in the road?? I didnt run over anything that could have caused it and if I did, it should have been flat while I was riding it. I was just wondering if anyone has had a problem with the stock tires getting punctures, gashes, leaks....etc? The bike is a K5 gsxr-600. Im pretty sure that im gonna get a pilot power for the back now that i have to get it replaced.

Any tire can get a puncture or gash. Anything could have caused it....and it didn't go flat right away cause it was a slow leak. I had the same thing happen last summer only a nail had given me a slow leak and I was fotunate enough that I had enough psi's left to stop at my wife's dealership to fill it back up with and get home.

Look up Mike from Heatwave...he can hook you up for $225 shipped for a set of the PP's.

Sounds like you have been sabotaged my man. Some jealous fu*ker has gone and stabbed your shit with a blade. Hunt them down and give them an eye for an eye!!


Seriously, that sucks dude
. Never heard of this problem before. Just bad luck. Not too sure on running the stock front with a Pilot rear. Some would say they are too different in characteristics to mix, I have no first hand knowledge of this though.

Yeah pretty sure 225 won't get you a set of PP but just one. Either way now is as good a time as any to go ahead and jump into some superb tires and the PP's are just that.

Well I know that no one stabbed my tire, it was parked at my dads in a locked garage all night in the country, and there were no signs of break into the garage. Also, I filled the tire up with air and it was flat in about 2 minutes, so if it was like that on the road it would have been flat quick. I dont know what to think about it, maybe there was somthing in the driveway that i ran over? Oh well, I guess I will just have to get a new one, cause this "not riding when I have a new bike to ride" shit is not cool.

You're pretty wrong. PP's for $225 shipped.
Midge and Jimmy I do know of Mike from heatwave and did do some searching.......i do not disagree that you can get 1 tire for 225 which is a hell of a deal but in midges first post if you go back and look a little closer he quoted 225 for a "set" of PP which if i'm not reading wrong means 2??? Maybe i'm wrong i'm new here but you tell me..........

Did you click on the link I provided? 120 is the front - 180 is the rear....thus forming a set...$225 shipped.


And if you're paying $225 for just the rear...that is not a hell of a deal....unless you're into receiving anal.
