Please can someone recommend which of the following tyres would be best for my 2004 Yamaha FZ6 Fazer. BT023, Pilot Road 3, Pilot Power, Dunlop Sportsmart or Qualifier 2's. They will need to work well in the wet, and through the summer. I need good grip & I don't know enough about the newer breed of tyres.
What to buy?

and havent tried any others (but heard good things about them). only had Bridgestone 023, 021 and 016 the first 021 nad 023 are sport tourer tyres which should compare to ur fzr I had them on a bandit and were great in all but snow n ice. The 016 are currently on the triumph and i find them a bit slippery when its wet out.
Pilot Road 2
I had these fitted to my 600 Fazer in the summer and they offer superb grip wet or dry. I was out on the Hawes to Horton road last week riding on wet roads and I was going at much the same speed as summer! The grip whilst cornering is excellent in the wet. They're also a bit cheaper than the Pilot 3s.
Pilot road 3
are the most recommended if you plan on wet riding. Dunlops sportsmart II (I think) is better except in the wet where it somehow manages to inspire more confidence despite having less overall grip than the michelin.
That's from reviews, not experience.
