ha being fast problems.

i've been riding Dunlops us compound for a few years now and they are great but i think with the Pirelli you have better front end feel.

To the contrary in my opinion. The Pirellis' (front) carcass is a lot softer and they move around a fair bit under hard braking causing my tail to move sideways in both directions. Dunlops are more stable (at the front) and provide more trust for me. Tail is moving considerably less with Dunlops.

Agree with the above. The Dunlops turned the R from a bit of a loony bike into something that felt as comfortable as my S always has. After using Pirellis for the couple of years I've had the S I've now switched completely to the Dunlops as they feel so much better in hard breaking which is one of the big strengths of the Panigale, and really stabilise the R all round.
Thanks from youngR
