my bike is pretty much a road bike with maybe light off road thrown in every once in a while, it could easily get by with road tires for what I do, so I was wondering:



I notice with the stock tires when you coast, you lose a bunch of speed quickly compared to a regular road bike - even down a hill. I'll lose speed where a road bike will gain speed. so I figured some road tires with a fuller street tread might grip better and therefore you would feel that you have more power, be much more efficient given that it's using less power to maintain a given speed, and have a theoretical higher top speed as well.



so basically I just wanted to know if I would see considerable benefits with road tires, or will it feel about the same besides the smoother ride? if so.. are the 203/204 the best road tires to get?

The 203/204 are a much better road tire. Worth the money. Don't expect a huge perceived power increase. If you want to go faster, buy a different motorcycle.
