Dunlop Roadsmart III - July 26, 2018, 06:26 PM

Anybody gone through a set of these? I'm curious about how long they actually last.
I don't think there is any way they'd last me as long as Dunlop claims.

An SV650 I bought recently came with these installed. Seem pretty decent so far and I was impressed with them in heavy rain.

Is that the pilot road competitor? I have been too satisfied with various generations of pilot roads that I haven't tried anything else. I think the rear pr4 on my cbr is nearing the wear bars so I could see trying the dunlops if I can find a good deal. These modern sport touring tires are so good for all around street bike use. Better traction than the street sport tires of 20-30 years ago and better wear than the old radial touring tires.

Had them on my F4i when it was stolen, no clue on how long they would've lasted. Initial impression, just as good as the Michelin pilot power 3 on the street. Unfortunately, I never got a chance to test the Roadmaster III at a trackday.

I switched from the PP3 to the roadmaster after reading Dodge131 experience with them, if memory serves me correct, he claimed that the Roadsmart III was the tire that lasted him the longest.

I have the RoadSmart IIIs on my Chicken and they do very well in the back twisties. Have not been caught in the rain on them yet but I can't imagine them being worse than my old Q3's. Not sure how many miles you can get out of it. I had a customer with a 636 come in that claimed 10,000 miles on his RoadSmarts, but with such little power to the rear wheel from the 636, I don't think it's a good basis for comparison.

1 more would be a bit too much. It's illegal for me to travel East in fear that the rotation of the Earth would get messed up.

I was turned down at Summit Point for having track tires. With the incredible power coming from the rear wheel, with track tires, it will throw a roost of pavement.
