tyres suitable for GSXR750 K1

I have recently moved my Suzuki GSXR750 K1 to Mallorca. Previous to this the bike had been garaged in England for the last 7 years. Just before garaging the bike it had been fitted with new Michelin Pilot Sports which have only done about 800 miles. I notice since running the bike on the hot roads in Mallorca that the bike tends to squirrel when accelerating on bends and exiting roundabouts. Should I replace these tyres they appear okay. But perhaps the walls have gone stiff. If I replace them what would be a suitable alternative? Corsas?

I would appreciate a response.

7 Years?

Hmmm, that is quite old. There is a shelf-life to tyres - not sure what it is though.

With tyres it's probably better to be safe than sorry. Dry place like that I'd go for something sporty, Dunlop Sportsmart or Diablo Rosso Corsa, pilot power 2CT, power pure...
