Try some of the big name online motorcycle parts stores and while you're at it, make sure you get a quote from SportbikeTrackGear (STG). STG had awesome pricing when I bought new Q2s for my 600 awhile back (IIRC, there was a slight price increase on this tire model across the board).

G'luck with the hunt for Q2s or whatever tires you wind up with...

I just recently got a set of BT003's. So far I'm very happy with them. Super sticky and they warm up instantly. I got them from STG. They overall have awesome prices on tires.

I have read the reviews, compared prices and am ready to pull the trigger(metaphorically speaking)

Its between the Q2's or the Pilot Power 2ct's.
Both appear to be quality multi compound tires.

My last three bikes (two superhawks and now RC) have all had Dunlop tires.
I think my hawks had D208's and my RC has qualifiers. Im leaning towards the Q2s but am open to some forum reviews...Q2's or Pilot Powers

I have never used the Q2's. I have used the PP and PP 2CTs. I have pushed them both on the track and street and never had a problem. I buy all my Street tires from Jake Wilson's

If you go with any of today's 'A' rated tires you will not be able to tell the difference from one to the next unless you take them on a track. They all perform so well you can pretty much close your eyes and pick one. You won't get much mileage out of them though. Maybe 3000 miles on the rear if you don't take it to the track. If I were you I would find the best deal. There are some links to tire reviews in a post thread I started for tires under modifications. Take a look. They are full of information.

I got a smokin hot deal on my new Battlax tires. Iwas looking at them anyway, but the price was an added incentive. My parts Canada rep had a one-time dealer offer 15 % velow wholesale. I pay cost + 15 here at the shop, so I got 'em for wholesale. Sweet. Good thing too, m/c tires are way more expensive up here than down in the States.
