I got mine mounted last Saturday, and have about 150 miles on em so far.
I am VERY impressed so far!
Good grip, turns in well, but it causes the bike to laugh at me more. (ie You slowed down for THAT?!?)
I'll be posting a more in depth review once I have a few more miles and a couple of rides to somewhere other than work on 'em

I will be going from stock dunlops to the corsas. Sounds like I made a good decision

I will be going from stock dunlops to the corsas..................................................
you will notice a HUGE difference from stock tires..they are junk!
HAS ANYONE tried them yet that has a decent tire already? THAT would be a more REALISTIC evaluation as we all know of the horrible profile the stock dunlops have.

There is no doubt in my mind that the grip and the performance on the Corsa III's is going to be really good. Heck, I thought the grip and performance on the standard Diablos was awesome compared to stock. My question for anyone running the Corsa III's is about tread life. Pirelli stated that they used a harder compound in the middle to extend tread life and a soft compound on the sides for grip and cornering performance. If this harder compound will get me 5,000 + miles on the Corsa III's, I'll make the switch. If not, I'll stick with the standard Diablos. The truth is, both the bike and the Diablos can handle a lot more than I can throw at 'em but a little extra grip when I'm riding the twisties or for a track day can't be a bad thing.
