was just wandering what sort of mileage i can expect from a pair of pirelli super corsa pro`s on a gsxr1000. would i get 1500 road miles?
is it because of the weight of the bigger bikes that gives such low milage with tyres.
I know the dealer will 'tell you , what you want to hear', but the aprilia dealer told me ,a 650 pagaso would probably give 4k on tyres

If your throttle happy id say 600 miles or so, i got 550 or so miles from the newer supercorsa pro (Diablo) on the rear of my R1 and i some how managed to wear the front nearly too the wear bars on the edges.
Having said that i have the Dragon Supercorsa Pro's on my 1098s, they are the standard fit, i have done 650 miles on that and they are still like new - but im sure they are a hard compound more suited to road.
Problem with the Supercorsas on the road is getting them hot, unless your on it they can be a bit tricky IMO.

Can't imagine them lasting very long especially if it's sc1's. I don't bother with supercorsa pros on the road. I find the new Diablo corsas are more than good enough. Designed to work over a greater temperature range (ie on the road) and they've got the harder compound centre and softer edges.
Im currently running them on my R1, i can say that they work really well, they just move around a bit more which is a good thing on the road as it lets you know the limit a bit sooner
i've managed about 700 miles out of my supercorsa pro's. but i have avoided straight roads like the plague to avoid them squaring off and they have already squared off.
they'll be gone inside the next 200 miles...

I got 12k out of the rear on my RT and I only changed it 'cos it was squared off.
Mind you my commute is all motorway and I think there's about 3 corners in the whole damned thing!
