The other guys are right.If your're doing a lot of agressive riding, you'll do good to get 2500 miles.Much of the tread depth is there to help shed water, not to provide milage. Runing a sport tire until it's bare is a bad idea(I've done it alot).I've had great results with dunlop 207's.I've bought them for several bikes over the years, and they came stock on my new 2000 ZX9R.When it's time to replace them I'll buy the same.
Be warned!! Race tires should be left for just that.They are designed for maximum cornering grip at full operating temperature. I'ts unlikely you'll ever get them up to temperture and keep them there on the street.
They wear to trash extremely fast,even after just a few hundred miles or less. Also, they are not designed to provide the sort of stabilty that street tires do.
