    I have them, and i love them, warm up quickly and hold tight through turns also get very nice mileage out of them but I'm also on a v- twin and don't have the same hp as an I4

    Ive got these, had em for about 400 miles. I like them, they have good grip through the corners, but i also dont ride real hard so i havent pushed them that far.

    I recommend them tho. Couple buddies have Diablo Corsas and they love em.

    Corsa 3s are more than you need if you are doing any street riding. At the track I wouldn't want to push them anything more than a fast B pace. After that its time to move up to DOT race tires ie supercorsas or pilot race.

    M3's are no bueno imo.
    they didnt seem as sticky and i burned through them ALOT faster!
    they seem more like a track tyre then somthing you would run on the street

    cyclegear.com has the Pirelli Diablo's for $170 a SET. That's what I'm using right now. For that price you can't say no. :noes:

    They're cheap but the Pilot Powers I spent $300 on (mounted) lasted me twice as long as my Diablos.

    I run Supercorsa Pros but the OEM compound that comes with the 675. They've been fantastic. I can't believe I'm actually getting mileage out of a set of Supercorsas. They're not squaring and they stick like all hell.

    I know I sound like a tard but I take my supermoto to the track so my 675 is relegated to commuter duty most of the time :ugh:

    Always Pilot Powers on my street bikes, I'm just used to them. Dunlop 209s, 211s and Bridgestone BT-003s so far on the track.
