Lmao.   Razz 
20% longer life. Now you guys will get 60, 000km out of a tyre instead of a mere 50, 000.

Harder compound all round sounds dangerous to me. You mightn't get too many kms if you slide it down the road. I will wait for some of you Michelin fans to tell us how it stacks up against the 3.

If you are already getting 20000 or more out of a rear you are not riding the bike like it should be ridden

Shit, and I bought a set of pr3's just before xmas. Now you tell me! Oh well, will have to get the pr3's used up first. That will give you all time to let me know if the pr4's are good or not. Smile

I am working at Murray Bridge at the moment, not sure how the bandit would handle all the sand. I would spend more time picking the bike up than getting the mail delivered. And the tyres would probably last longer too! Smile

Some comments:

Gee the pr3s didn't last long.

If you are using these on a  ktm990 you're on the wrong bike!!!!!

50000 km on a tyre = never using the engine....!!! Reckon I'll get around a quarter of that
