Michelin Pilot Power 3 Rear Tires The Pilot Power 3 is the much-anticipated replacement for the Michelin Power Pure tire. The Michelin Pilot Power 3 is an all new high-performance, dual-compound sportbike tire designed for the street or the track. Features New 2CT+ compound on rear tire enhances tread rigidity and cornering stability by extending the harder compound underneath the softer shoulder compound for added cornering stability especially when accelerating out of turns Casing profile optimized for excellent feedback and handling All-new compounds for maximum wet grip up to 4.5 seconds per lap faster on a wet track than Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires Semi slick tread design maximizes contact patch for excellent dry grip - more than 4 seconds faster on a dry track than Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires Excellent longevity - 20 more tread life versus Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires

Got this for my fz8 after I wore the factory Bridgestone battle axe tires to the wire. Soooooo much better. Seems like they are grippy from the get go and don't need as much time to get warm. Before I had to be real careful on the throttle through corners, much more confident now.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have to leave for work early, so I was worried that this would be too dark, however, I was pleasantly surprised when I rode in the first morning. Not too dark at all, plus it's great on sunny days as well. Has eliminated my need for sunglasses.

Heat Demon External Heated Grip Warmers Kit The Symtec Heat Demon Heated Grips are a great, must have accessory. 2-stage heated grips that keep you comfortable and warm and riding with these really do extend your riding season. This quality kit allows the heating elements to be fitted neatly and discretely under the OEM grips or your own favorite aftermarket grips. Easy to install, with 2-stage heat settings, the kit is suitable for all types of bikes, tourers, sports, and off road / enduro bikes. The kit consists of two heating elements on flexible Mylar tape that attaches to your handlebar (clutch side) and throttle tube (throttle side) via permanent adhesive on the back. The right and left heaters are different, to accommodate lower heat tolerance of plastic throttle tubes. Features 3 amp draw (36W) on the high position. No external resistor or other parts are needed to install. 3-position (off, high, low) metal toggle switch or surface-mounted plastic rocker switch Increases rider safety and comfort Extend the riding season Easy to install

If you have a period of time to completely dismantle your bike enough to perform a really clean install of this product, like say winter, then this is a great product. The install was almost more than I could chew and required the purchase of an aftermarket rocker switch so that it looked stocked, but let me tell you... there are few things in life as sweet as warm hands when riding a bike in cold weather, and this product definitely delivers on that.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I honestly thought that the helmet would be a bit better than my Bell Arrow helmet, but for the price, I just can't justify getting the same product again. Not sure if I will ever get another Shoei for 300-400 dollars, when a 150 dollar Bell will be just as good.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Do you know that you will most likely have to weld a new oxygen sensor bung in your exhaust? No? Its ok. Many auto-body shops have tig welders and will do it cheap. Other than that, good product.
Yes, I recommend this product.
