How did you set them? My bike came with them installed and they're uneven and it's driving me nuts!

The bars have a pin on them, and a slot on the triple tree, if you look from the bottom you should be able to see the slot, only go in one way and shouldnt rotate, mine seem even.

I have the power pures on my 12 at the moment MICHELIN POWER PURE | Road Bike Tyres | MICHELIN
They do them in a 200 size which is why I went for them as I like Michelins. There not as wide as the AV60 but feel better.
I went to the Wales meet on them and recently and just got back from riding round Europe on them. They've done 3500 miles with still a bit of ware left in them. I was not caining the bike as much as I'd like to due to a leaky fork seal, and getting kicked out of France.

They do move a little but you get used to that, and with them being a lightweight tyre there sensitive to tyre pressure so keep them checked at 42psi.
The only thing that seems strange is the front tyre pattern contradicts the back, but so do powers.

Nice tyre and I'd fit them again, unless Michelin start making a 200 PR3.
