Some thing I discovered a few years ago -- after speaking to a uk Bridgestone factory fella -- when you buy a new bike --as in the case of the XJR and it has lets say Dunlops fitted -- so orf ya go and they are CRAP -- and will probably put you off ever buying that brand again --- now then heres the kicker according to the bridgestone factory fella ----
Your bike is fitted with ASIAN market tyres --- a totally differant compound to dunlop Europe or bridgestone europe etc etc -- the same applys to say American made bikes --- American compounds are again differant to europe and asia --
So juat because your original black hoops scared the bejayzus outta ya -- it dont meen that if you wanted to fit OEM tyres again they would have the same effect ----- point in example my XJR had bridgestone 020's fitted - totally crap -- however from experiance ah was expecting this and when the rear was done in ah replaced em with a pair of 020 europe tyres --- totally differant and much better than OEM
hope this is of some help to newbies [ ah term ah hate lol :) :) :) ;) ]
ps
am now running MAXXIS Diamonds [ long story ] but to say I am mightaly impressed is an understatement -more on that later

I'll second the OP. Once owned a Toyota MR2 and found that the OEM tyres weren't even available for purchase in the uk despite the car coming from the uk plant. See no reason that things are different in the bike world.
