Time for tires and I can't decide between the Dunlop Qualifyer,ContRoads,Pirelli Scorps./or Diablo.
The only complaints I had about the 208's were standing under braking/ slow warm up. The new Dunlops have apparently addressed these issues.
Any input is helpful.

The Pirellis are pretty good, but my Firebolt is on its third set of Michelin Pilot Powers. They warm up quickly, consistently and offer tons of feedback during trail braking. Absolute grip is huge and they feel great all the time. Recommended

The Qualifiers have definitely addressed MOST of the standing up under braking characteristic of the OEM D208's. But not 100%.
The Pirelli Diablos do an even better job. Nearly eliminating the stand up problem completely--but still not 100%. However, the Diablos feel much better suited to my Firebolt than the excellent Qualifiers. It may even have more mileage. AT least it looks like it so far.
I would recommend you try both tires and see for yourself. Why not? The Qualifiers will only last about 3k miles so if you don't like them, you won't have them on for long!

I have installed both Pirelli Diablo Corsa and Michelin Pilot Power.
I recomend Michelin Pilot Power, and as 12r has pointed out go for the 2CT.
The Michelin has definately more lean angle potential that the Pirelli. Although Pirelli are better around town.
