I agree that the OEM Dunlops are dangerous, i had a couple of scary moments at the rear with them and also found the traction control cutting in when pulling away reasonably normally (I had a Pikes Peak multistrada with 150 hp before and never got this to happen except when accelerating hard over white lines in the wet)
I switched to TA2's just before the 600 mile service and have done nearly 4,000miles on them now, they seem about 50% worn and grip really well in the wet and dry.
The problem with the Traction control cutting in when i didn't think it should have was as much about confidence, it got to the point where i was very nervous of corners on wet roads, I have total confidence in the TA2's, wet or dry, hot or cold.
It transformed the bike for me, if i bought another AT I would have the dealer switch the tyres before delivery.
P.S. I have the OEM tubes in tubeless TA2's, I had them fitted close to home by a guy that specialises in Bike tyres, he basically said not to worry about it so I didn't. I think we can worry about these things too much...
