Re: PILOT ROAD 4 GT

Hi Neil,

My last pair of PILOT ROAD 4 GT finished some months ago and I decide to Install the PILOT ROAD 4 STD.

Both are excellent tyres but my impressions comparing the GT version and std is that GT is better in full load travel (My self +My wife +baggage) and just alone STD version is better

Just install and test the '' http://www.ktmtwins.com/fasstco-ktm-twi ... ar-inserts'' . Sincerely in my case the results was bad. The handguards were flexible and the front of the bike were havier.

just spend money and time. STM vibes is ok comparing with other V2 bikes

Re: PILOT ROAD 4 GT

correct, the info from Michelin GT uses a pair of crisscrossed plies below a standard belt ply for enhanced stability at high speeds without it giving away favorable bump absorption properties on rough surfaces.

Re: PILOT ROAD 4 GT

Hi,
Before install I have several doubts between STD and GT versions.
The focus in GT version is the confortable and better life for long trips that I want. The importat fact I noted is the maneability is really better too than the Road3 version.
