Thanks. Had never used Sport bike before . I priced RS 3s at Chaparral,Sport bikes, Motorsports and RevZilla. All were 263 a pair except RevZilla at 347. Not sure why that is.
Cycle gear is also at 348. Maybe I am looking at 2 different tires?

Been ordering from American Moto Tire.

Just tried 2 Wheel.

They seem to be cheaper than the other for the same item.

I just got a set of Metzeler Roadtech Z8's from Revzilla for $260.

My front tire arrived today and has a date code stamp of 05/2021 so apparently Metzeler is still making these tires alongside their other Roadtech series tires. That's good news, because these are great tires at a pretty low price, and they really stick in the wet.

I've been pleasantly surprised at the prices on Amazon. ~$180 for a set + $55 to mount & balance the rear I have new ContiMotions on front+back and they seem to handle just fine. I hit 140 this weekend (on a closed circuit of course) and had no stress. No scrub-in required.

I did notice that the 190 Continental is visibly narrower (by about 1/4") than the 190 Battlaxes, but I'm happy to have the fresh meat on the ground. They seem stickier and I feel more confident with these than I did with the Battlaxes.
