pilot road 4s...hate them.
« on: 06/30/14 01:21PM »
I haven't don't a track day or serious canyon time with them but I have done a lot of 85+ and my front seems to buzz.   It didn't with my last front tire, so I know it's not mechanical. 

Am I the only one?  I know some of you have the same tires and I was wondering if you guys feel the same around 100mph.

No buzz on mine. Bad balance job?

Tires that buzz?  You might want to check the S1000RR forum, it's more likely your clip-ons are buzzing and the cheap solution seems to be slapping on some heavier bar-end weights.  The buzzing/vibrations aren't bad at freeway speeds on the '14 as in older models, but between 45-50 mph it's noticeable.

The buzz is at speeds above 85 or 90 (not a particular rpm) and weren't there with prior tires.  It might be balance...I'm just too lazy/cheap to pay a shop to check.

I never ran PR4s, only PR3s and they were great, got 6000 miles out of them...no high speed issues...never ran the 4's because they are harder compound then 3s...
