Interesting.... I had 3s and 4s on my GTRs  which were pretty good in the rain, but the venerable GTR (Connie) is a much heavier bike than the Versys 1000

Thanks for the feedback guys  :002:

To be clear the PR2's and 4's were on my Versys 650, the 4's and 4GT's were on my ZRX1200 and the 5's I have just had fitted to my V1K a couple weeks ago.

I recall having PRs fitted to my first GTR (Connie) back in 2007 the weight of the PR (they would probably have been PR2s I think) was much lighter than the OEM Bridgestones that they were replacing, also the material was noticeably softer/stickier, tyre performance was immediately improved

PR2's went on my Versys 650 as I said above, they replaced the OEM Dunlops. Night and day the difference especially in the wet, They also lasted a LOT longer.
