“Excellent tyre, never had any problems”

Written on: 26/08/2014 by Cahill115 (1 review written)

I've had these fitted to my R-1 and they give fantastic grip at lean angles of around 50 degrees from vertical in the dry, and 40-45 degrees in the wet. They handle well at all speeds, and have never let me down. I'm personally not concerned about wear, and don't keep track of how many tyres I go through, or how often they get changed, so I have no idea of how long they last. Cornering is controlled, and acceleration & hard braking is awesome. Can't fault them in any way… Read Full Review

“Average Tyre”

Written on: 15/07/2014 by LeeHead497 (1 review written)

I was hopping for a lot more from this tyre,i have the Q2's and had heard good things about the tyre if you are a warm weather dry road rider you can live with these, you can learn them fast you can feel the warning signals well in advance and they work well. But they loose heat fast and they are not very good in even damp conditions never mind cold or wet. they nearly caught me twice in just damp conditions and i was not pushing hard,i was surprised how easy they lost grip. And since then can… Read Full Review

“Jusflyin”

Written on: 07/03/2013 by Jusflyin (1 review written)

Good on the road, good on be track. Found they warmed up quicker than expected on the track and kept their heat well. Give you lots of feedback and let you know when the limits are close. Done in 3 track days, never worn one out with just road use. There are more refined tyres out there designed for more specific roles, but as an all rounder these are pretty damn good. Price wise they seem fine too… Read Full Review

“Good tyres”

Written on: 13/03/2012 by bluefazer (1 review written)

I got an fzs 600 fazer, I had an expensive set of top brand tyres on it when I bought it, but the front end would slip out every now and then when banking down. I then went for the Dunlop qualifiers, and the difference was immense. The overall feel was like riding a new machine, a lot more fun factor and they stick to the road like glue, whatever the weather. I have covered 2200 miles on them, and there is just the tiniest of squaring beginning to form at the centre, so theres a good while in… Read Full Review

“Worst tyre ive ever used FACT!!!”

Written on: 06/06/2011 by Crispy3 (1 review written)

Had a brand new set on my 09 Blade, Seriously i do not know how Dunlop have got away with selling a tyre of such poor grip quality even when warm on a really hot day, these are just dreadful tyres! I kept these on for 1900 miles and really struggled to put any decent lean angles in with them both front and rear always letting go when you needed it most. finally changed them to a set of Bridgestone BT 014 my god the bike feels 100% different loads of grip and control, real great feed back… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/03/2011

Came as OEM on my new CBR600RR, I had a choice between these and the stock Bridgestones that Honda offer and as I've never got on with Bridestones I thought I'd give these a go. Only done 1000 miles on them and must say not terribly impressed. Front tyre lacks any real feel and will slide and tuck when pushed, luckily it's not fully let go yet but I don't trust it that much. These tyres are not great in cold or damp conditions either as then the rear starts to spin up as well. Now the weather… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/03/2011

i think its totally up to the rider style and use of the tire, i ride a sv650 street only, and i can easily drag a peg all day and come out with smooth power slides with confidence, if your looking for a more cruising tire i would suggest the Q2 or a pilot power 2ct but this is better for hot faster paced riders… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/11/2010

Well these tyres have come with my 2010 fireblade, I have only done 200 miles but I started to lean my bike on dry but mildly cold roads as it's November, the front slipped as I was leaning, It didn't result in a accident as I knew what was happening and how much I could push before losing too much grip. There's not alot of grip maybe better on warmer roads. Also back end slipped out, at only 4000rpm on a cold road too this was another day by the way. All this and I'm still running the bike in… Read Full Review

I have dunlops on my sp2 and i love them, tires are worn rim to rim and are stable at all speeds i live in ireland and roads have improved but are still very poor in many places. more often then not it rains while your out riding and these tires give good feedback and grip. could be that these tires suit the v twins better than the in line fours that said, its dunlops for me… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/11/2009

I bought a ZX9R which had new Qualifier Race reps on, they are reasonable in the dry, but absolutely shocking in the wet, I have no confidence in them and cant wait to put some Bridgestones back on,I have never been a fan of Dunlops, and the qualifier has proved to me why. I feel an inexperianced rider could seriously hurt themselves with these tyres.
They may be good on a trackday, but are lethal in the wet… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/10/2009

Dunlop Qualifiers (not II's or RR's just the plain-jane OEM versions) were fitted to my '08 Blade when I picked it up. They had done a few miles and had plenty of tread left, and were at the correct pressure. But the previous owner was a straight line merchant and the shoulders hadn't really been srubbed in, so I took it easy and gradually worked up to pace. Just as I was starting to trust them the front let go on a roundabout and down I went. Expensive mistake, I should have changed the tyres… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/08/2009

I got a set of OE Dunlop D209 Qualifiers on my Z750 when I bought it new. The grip is fantastic from them, even in the wet (Scotland), utterly confidence inspiring on my particular bike. It's easy to get the pegs down when pressing on.
The real downside of them is wear, I got 1400 miles from the rear and 2500 from the front of spirited riding through the awesome roads of Scotland. The centre went on the rear and shoulders on the front.
They are also not cheap - £110 rear (fitted) and £95 front… Read Full Review

Dunlop Qualifier tyres came on my first bike, cbr600rr, so wasnt too sure how they should perform, it wasnt until i built up a bit confidence that i realised how bad they were, nearly low sided a few times, found the bike just slid away from me and a high speed corner, and in the wet were terrible!… Read Full Review

The Dunlop Qualifier Motorcycle Tyres are absolutely the worst tyre i have ever ridden on!!! i bought my gixxer 750 k6 with a new set of these so called tyres on, the worst mistake i ever made, they do not have any grip what so ever and will spin up on a warm summer day which isnt a good sign at all anyway after about 1000 miles on these tyres the front lost traction and i dished the bike at the roundabout i have never had a tyre so bad in all my years riding… Read Full Review
