“Wouldn't be without them!!”

Written on: 22/02/2016 by Von_Mitch (1 review written)

I've had all sorts of bikes, jap, Italian and now American, and all sorts of tires.... My current ride, which I've had for many years, is a Harley VRSCR Street Rod.... Don't let the 'Harley' name put you off, this is their sportiest bike ever!!... These tires consistently help me keep up with jap sports bikes round the Welsh twisty roads!!.. Great in the dry AND the wet, I've had many many sets on this bike, will NEVER change, they're that good!!… Read Full Review

“How grippy are Dunlop Sportmax's...my road rash tells...”

Written on: 16/02/2015 by BreannaPugh106 (1 review written)

I was riding a Susuki DRZ400 fitted with these tyres today for the first time. My ride required me to navigate some nice tight sweepers along the way and I relished the opportunity to enjoy time getting the feel for the bike and tyres. I was soon surprised by the feeling of instability and the lack of confidence the tyres provided even after they were given 4 or 5 K's to warm up. I'm a highly experienced rider/ex-road-racer and am familiar with the roads around the area I was riding… Read Full Review

“Bad KM's, okay grip”

Written on: 08/05/2014 by Northao1962 (1 review written)

Ive had the Dunlop d208's on my DRZ400SM and i do some occasional mountain riding and a fair bit of commuting , the tyres always tend to slip and not grip giving me poor confidence in cornering. Wouldnt recommend buying these they also only lasted me about 3500km's which is fairly poor, im not a hardcore rider so considering that these tyres are pretty useless and bad quality… Read Full Review

“Dunlop D208 on DRZ400SM”

Written on: 06/05/2013

I had a new 140/70 R17 rear tyre fitted to my Suzuki DRZ400SM K7 when the original tyres were worn out at 2500 miles. Now, having covered a further 2100 miles the rear tyre is squared off and virtually down to the wear bands - it's goosed! Not only that, but the DRZ is no heavyweight (134kg) super powerful (39hp) superbike. And I am no hot shot rider being on the wrong side of 59 years old. The grip is not very spectacular and it is easy to induce an unwanted slide on the rear not to mention… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/11/2010

I HAVE THESE DUNLOP TYRES ON MY CBR 600RR AND WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYBODY. I HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN THESE TYRES AND WOULD NOT BUY THEM AGAIN.
THEY GRIP OK IN PERFECT CONDITIONS BUT IF IT IS EVEN SLIGHTLY DAMP THEY LOOSE GRIP EVEN WHEN THEY ARE WARM.
THE BACK WHEEL SPINS WHEN CHANGING UP GEARS THEN SUDDENLY GRABS AGAIN CAUSING SOME VERY HEART STOPPING MOMENTS THIS HAS ALSO HAPPENED IN HIGHER GEARS.
I HAVE ALSO HAD THE FRONT TYRE LOOSE GRIP AND SLIDE.
ON THE PLUS SIDE THESE ARE GOOD… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/07/2009

I ride 100 miles a day, 5 days a week and when averaging 2000 miles a month i find it hard to get tyres that can last and perform at reasonable cost. The D208's i have found to be ideal for my '02 636 ninja, i get around 4k rear, double front of hard riding. i consider myself to be a quick rider in the twisties and straights of the poor surfaced highland roads and these give excellent grip matching the performance of D207 easily. for me these tyres inspire confidence in corners and excellent… Read Full Review

a really good tyre on a warm clean road, but introduce a bit of cold damp weather and maybe some rain and its like riding on plastic. i've had Dunlop D208 on my '04 636 for 6 months and i've spun the back wheel 4 times on a cold start. gonna try them on a trackday soon to see how good they can be when they're really warm… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/03/2009 by zzryrider (2 reviews written)

The Dunlop D208's aren't good on light sports bikes with firm suspension, better for heavier bikes with more weight to help warm up quicker, as seems to take longer to warm up generally than others I've had… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/01/2009 by jiggerello (1 review written)

Dunlop D208 is a good all round tyre offering a cheaper replacement than the other manufacturers. I would recommend. I have had three sets now on various Aprilia RSV,s I have gone for 180 rear section instead of 190 (quicker turn in ). Never had a problem I am a quick road rider who excels in the twisties. I have found these grippy wet or dry. No snob value with these tyres. I did have a pair of Diablo corsas slightly more grippy in dry but not that you would notice unless on a track maybe… Read Full Review

427232_Easyrider5150's Response to ocolisan's Review

Written on: 23/12/2008

I found this review helpful because... it gives actual real riding evaluation and comparison to competitor products. With views on handling, grip and quality etc, very useful in making a choice and much better than bar charts or graphs, which can be misleading!

Written on: 15/09/2008 by Horneto (1 review written)

I just swapped from BT56's on my 600 Hornet and I have to say the Sportmax are great. No complaints. Grip in wet and cold or dry, or hard acceleration (my thing) they are solid and dependable. I can't imagine why anyone would have a bad word to say about them. Maybe it's more about them?… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/07/2008

I ride reasonable aggressively in the twisties - or try to. Best feeling is powering out of a corner, leant over, knowing that the tyres will not let you down.... I just don't get that from these. Bought a zx6r with them already on. Before they are warm, they let the back spin out of corners, that's without accessive acceleration. They are partly worn, but the grip feels like a bridgestone before it's been scrubbed in. I've never had a pair of dunlop's, and probably never will again… Read Full Review

Good all rounder for performance and ride. Harder centre compond for highway and soft side for hard cornering. I like to ride hard around corners and these feel great. Wear can be quick but if you want good grip it is a price you have to pay… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/03/2007 by skote (22 reviews written)

I had these on my first bike, a 600 Hornet. The front went rectangular and the rear square after about 3K miles. Mind you, this might have been my rubbish riding! A change to a set of Dunlop Qualifiers sorted my bike out. They are a better buy - much more grip in wet or dry, but a bit more money… Read Full Review
