Tires... I need fresh rubber

Hola! So let's talk tires. I need a new set of rubber on 2019 BMW S1000R (Not an RR but yes, an R)

The stock tires are Bridgestone Battlax S20 120/70ZR17(F) and 190/55ZR17(R). They are ok tires but nothing to write home about. I think they are technically no more, superseded by the S21 and/or S22. I barely eeeked out 2k miles out of these OEM tires in 5 months of bike ownership.

My riding is 90+% in the canyons with roughly 1 track day per life of the tires. This bike only leaves the garage on very nice, dry days. Wet grip is of NO consequence to me. I prefer side grip over mileage/life of the tire.

On my Duke 690, I have Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa's. They are fantastic but I know tires that work well on a smaller bike could possibly fall apart under a bike with 4-5x more power.

Here are the tires I am thinking....
Bridgestone Battlax S21
Bridgestone Battlax RS-10
Michelin Power RS
Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa II
Pirelli SuperCorsa SP
Dunlop Sportmax Q3+

Thoughts and experiences?

Also, where should I go to buy and mount the tires? Wheels off bike.... I think I want some place is in the Temecula/Murrietta but prefer a place that is sportbike focused.

The Pirelli's on the Duke I had bought from and had mounted by Chaparral. But they have not answered their phone all week and I have called 2-3x, even used there call back option with no call back. I was hoping to buy over the phone, confirm date codes, then drive up. Like I did with the Pirelli's last year. If they are letting only a few people in at a time, I do not want to have to hang out all day to get it done.

I found the S21/S22 and the Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa II about the same on my S1000R and stick with the Bridgestones now, didn't care for Dunlops at all. I get all my tires from rockymountainATV.com but can't recommend a installer in your area.

Thank you for the info. Are you running the S21, S22 or RS-10?

Best grip tire on the list is Pirelli Supercorsa. Great grip just won't last that long. You can have them mounted at Temecula Motorsports. Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa's III next in line. Will last longer. Plenty of grip for street. You can order from Revzilla online.

Thank you! This is where I am leaning too since I am a Pirelli fan.

I just won't use Temecula Motorsports for anything. There prices on almost everything is bloated and have some of the rudest management I have dealt with in the motorcycle industry.

Because I can't seem to get Chaparral on the phone at all.. I just called the dealer (Temecula BMW) to get me pricing and availability on the Pirelli SuperCorsa and Battlax S22 tires.

Aw man you just missed the Bridgestone rebate! I got a set of T31's and a set of S22's for two different bikes. I have not found better performing tires for the value, even without the rebate. The T31's are all you'll need for the street and can prob run an intermediate pace at a trackday (have not tracked them) but S22's are very impressive for track/street use at the expense of some mileage.

I buy and typically have them mount at Chaparral. They've had the lowest price of the Bridgestones I've found and mount & balance for $30/wheel off the bike. They charge $20 to mount if you don't want a balance.

Ahhh. BUMMER!!!

So..... to close the loop. Dealer ordered me a set of S22's. Supposedly will be there tomorrow. They are going to call me when they get in so I can roll over. They seem to think they will have me in and out in an hour tomorrow afternoon so I can ride this weekend.
