Just about to order myself some road 5s on yours (and Fortnine's RyanF9s) recommendation!

The stocks have been fine over summer, but this week we've had wet weather in the uk (well, technically it's always wet weather in Manchester, UK) - there's definitely been a big difference with the cold and wet weather, had the back wheel skid and slip a few times.

I'm wondering what pressures you guys are running in the Michelin tires. For the stock tires, I lowered the recommended pressure down to about 32 psi front and rear to get better grip when braking and cornering. I am a light-weight rider (~130 lb), so lower pressure is probably advisable.

Put 13k on the Dunlop D214's now I'm trying these out. Winter is coming John Snow. Anyway I've got lots of work to do to the Z . Still trying to figure out these rear sets and how to swap them. Looks like the shock and swingarm gets removed. https://youtu.be/485ciPRTFPU
