Quote from: Peter998 on June 29, 2011, 12:08:10 PMI used the Michelin power 1's last year and found them to be excellent tires. I won 23 races on them so they must be OK. I did use the V front which for me on a Duc 1000 helped to turn in quicker, and once on it's side the bike was very stable with a large contact patch. I used the B rear and it was just all around great.I did have one issue with the V front though. When at Homestead at ROC, trail braking into Turn 3 the front tire slide and would actually skip across the track. I almost bought it there on 3 occasions. I don't know if it was suspension set up or the tire, or too much brake, but I didn't have that problem anywhere else. My feeling is that if you are a heavy trail braker the power 1's may not be the best option. Other than that they were great.
Quote from: MELK-MAN on June 29, 2011, 05:45:55 PMthe issue in Turn 3 at Homestead COULD be the concrete patches that are grooved for grip, but still don't grip as good as the pavement.. Agree the V front is a little more flexy than the A/B fronts, but the additional side grip at full lean seems to outweigh the inferior trail braking characteristic. HOPEFULLY the updated V fronts are getting stiffend up a bit, but no word on when/if that occurs.
