Michelin Pilot Road 3 Trail Tires Building on the tremendous reputation Michelin has built over the years, the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tire is the successor to the award winning Pilot Road 2. With the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire you are really getting 2 tires in 1, by integrating a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders with a wear-resistant compound down the middle, Michelin gives you the best of both worlds. The Pilot Road 3 is a dual compound sport-touring radial tire. X-Sipe Technology for adventure touring bikes For trail bikes ridden primarily on the road All-season grip and outstanding mileage for adventure bikes like the BMW GS, Triumph Tiger 800 and Suzuki V-Strom X-Sipe Technology Drains water away from the contact patch, while breaking through water film on the road 2 Compound Technology For optimized wear, the 2CT compound distribution on the rear tire has been adapted specifically for trail bikes Soft compound on the shoulders for cornering grip, harder compound in the center for durability Note The Trail version of the Pilot Road 3 tire is designed specifically for large, ADV bikes that are ridden solely on the road. They have a different compound makeup than the standard Pilot Road 3 Tires .

It's a Michelin so of course it's Not Cheap... but you get what you pay for!
Works Very Well F&R on my DL 1000.
My only (Sorta) negatives are a tire wine from the front & less than stellar wear, again on the front... but I generally go thru front tires way before backs regardless of what bike I'm piloting.
By far the best "Non Race" wet weather tire I have used in 35+ years on bikes! All around a Excellent product!
RevZilla as a vendor? EXCELLENT experience with every purchase I have made from them!
I can recommend using them without reservation!

Everything in the box & well packed inside (outside was rough but it WAS shipped...)
Instalation was a bit of a challange as that I have Happy Trail side mounts for my Teton side boxes.I had to cut / shim the mounting points & spacing of the mufflers and aquiring longer bolts. After Initial install I had leaks at the lower pipe joints & had to pull back down and use some "Ultra" pipe seal to fix it.
I had already installed a Dobeck box & had it sorted out & with the Quiet inserts in performance was slightly stronger & sound quality is good without being too loud. Pulled the inserts & picked up a noticeable gain over 6,500 rpm with another "click" richer on the hi speed box adjustment.
Substantial (feels like over 20 lbs.) weight savings over stock.
85% of a Staintune system at 1/3rd of the price.
I can recommend this system.
As per usual, Excellent service & response from RevZilla.

Quality & finish is very good. I was pleasently suprised how light it was.
The interior is o.k. for this price range but Not what I expected. My Iasus speakers were an absolute no way in this helmet, but it overall was MUCH tighter fit than I was expecting.....(I'm a measured 59cm~ Large).
The shield operates nicely but fogs easily & badly in cold weather (without pinlock) and the mid range detents have loosened up a Lot in a years worth of everyday commuting.
It seals up in wet weather riding as well as any helmet I have ever used, with no distortion and a Very good field of vision.
The less than complete satisfaction is mostly my fault as that I wore it riding 20 mins. after recieving it so I did not feel it to be fair to send it back.... to get another model or size.
Since then I have gone down to the thinnest cheek pads and while it is much more comfortable, it's much too round for me. My nose touches the faceshield.
My last 2 lids were a HJC & a Arai.
The "Moral" to this tale is: DO NOT take it outside untill you have worn it around the house first!!!
I will likely replace this Quest with another Arai in the near future. (and likely will buy it from RevZilla!).
The Quest fits my Lady friend (Usually a medieum size) quite well.
Yes, I recommend this product.
