Re: Best tires? Dunlop?
depends on the compound. might be your dad's tires were soft-compound, racing types. surely, they won't last as long as all-round road tires like dunlop tt900s.

better choice siguro is 80/90 & 90/90 bt39ss. yun nga lang, pricey ang battlax... pero surely just right sa size & power ng raider.
can't say too much on grip though. it's built for 125cc up... pero problems ata with the weight of the raider kaya lumalabas matigas masyado. anyhow... ang gaan din naman kasi ng raider.
overall road tire okay na tt900... wag lang masyado maliit. just right would be 80/80 & 90/80 sa raider.
try metzeler M01s din. these are cheap but i hear offer good grip for the price... cheaper pa against tt900s.
then again... any tire bumibitaw sa grip because of lots of factors, so mahirap talaga. best to find out is during trackday.
yun lang po.
