Any one with a 09-11 R1 have any probs with rear grip or keeping temp into the rear tyre. I'm now running 30 psi in the rear and it's not too bad but still having trouble out or corners. Im Also running Dunlop Q2's.

Could try fine tuning the rear suspension. But not really sure what to tell you. I run about 30-35 psi with a Michelin Power Pure and have no issues jumping on the throttle out of a corner at any speed

Edit: Should also mention that this is all on street, no track use for my bike yet

For some reason, some tires just do not perform well on certain bikes no matter how good they are rated.
Agree'd.

Whatever Dunlop they had on from factory. I'd go to wash the bike and when I pulled it out from the wash bay, pull onto the street and crack the throttle open and leave a 50' patch of rubber without any effort. No spin with the Michelines
