    I had a similar experience as soon as I changed the original S20's to Bridgestone BT023 back in early 2014. My symptoms were a high speed weave that started at 100mph, which got worse the faster you rode. Took it back to fitter straight away (ie within 100 miles), he checked everything, and everything was correctly balanced/fitted, and recommended I speak to Bridgestone. I had a couple of conversations with tech guy at Bridgestone, who suggested some bikes are very tyre specific, and as the BT023 werent recommended for the MT09 it was my fault for fitting them. I know other people who had them fitted never had any issues. Problem was only resolved when I went back to the S20's.
    I'm currently the Pilot Road 3's, they are excellent, have currently done over 6000s miles on them with plenty of life left

    I have covered about 5000 km on PR4's after a set of Pilot Power 3 wore out.
    No problems at all with the PR4's, great in the wet.
    I do seem to be able to lock the front more often compared to the PP3, but I guess the PP3 are a softer compound (bike has ABS)

    I am on PR4s with standard suspension. Can't fault them wet or dry. Just bought a second set.

    Hi All
    A quick update on my pilot road 4 situation . I have changed them to Metzeler roadtec 01 ,there is simply no comparison. The roadtecs are far more supple and track the road perfectly. The pattering sensation has totally gone . Confidence in the front tyre is where it should be . I cannot believe how much better they are over the pilot4s .
    If anybody fancies a set of pilot4s pm me 500 miles old perfect condition £150
