No Issues so far!

This is the first set of tires I have ridden on. I ride a 2008 Ninja 250R and these tires came stock. The tires (referring to rear and front) lasted for about 12,000 miles with normal commuting. I have had 0 issues with Stability, Cornering, Wet/Dry traction, or Tread Life. I'd buy these again but they no longer offer the size I need.

I've had these tires on my 1984 Kawasaki 750 E1 turbo for years. I will replace them with the same tire as long as Dunlop continues to make them. Great tire!

Awesome product and even better service from motorcycle superstore. Ordered on a Sunday night and by Thursday it was at my front door.

Incredible Price/Performance

I've put almost 1000 miles on them commuting so far including heavy rainfall. As expected, traction is highly predictable and excellent for my Suzuki GS500F. I have about half an inch to scuff still, but do not expect to get there unless I take to the track--the street is not the place for such extremes. I would pay more for this tire.

2010 NINJA 250 YAKYAS

Riding on this tire for about 6 months now at 500 miles a week and the tread is still phenominal. Great tire, great grip and deep cut pattern is awesome.

GT501 rear tire

I put these tires on as a set on my 08 Dayna Low Rider with 20,000 miles. It's the third set I put on the bike since it was new. They have about a 1,000 miles on then now and I still can't believe how much better they are over the the last two sets of OEM tires.

Impressive tires

I got a set of these from the factory on my Ninja 250R. Unfortunately they were not available when I needed to replace them so I put on BT45s. The Dunlop GT501s are a great around sport tire with excellent grip and better tread wear than most (including the BT45s).

Great tire for my baby Ninja!

This is such an improvement on the 630 that came stock on my rear wheel. This tire sticks better in the rain than the old one did on dry pavement. As for tread wear, the 3 is because I don't know yet; it's still new. We'll see.

Mostly freeway miles... 17k

I had these tires for 2.5 years and most of the riding that I did was highway. I was able to squeeze 17k out of them before the rear squared out on me (yes, 17k, you did not read wrong). I got another set and am hoping for the same luck.

Fantastic on 250 Ninja

These tires have great traction for the tread life they deliver. I get about 7,000 miles per set. This is mountain riding, normally 2 up. In the rain I find them no worse than most tires. During cornering in the rain, they will step out if the road has numerous tar snakes.

GT 501 rear

Second set of these on a ‘08 Low Rider. Only 4,200 miles on rear and about 8,000 for the front. But the tradeoff is a great set of tires over the stock tires that came on the bike. Scraping pegs on an off ramp is very common. Even on this Low Rider that handles like a load of bricks in a wheel barrel.

KLX250SF

They look great and feel great. But I have to add that I used to run pilot powers 2ct on my R1 and I can say that these tires SUCK on wet road. The pilots put these tires to shame, mostly just in the rain. Unless the weight of the bike makes the difference, I wouldn’t consider pushing these.
