Those tyres look less than average, and while having not covered many km's they may be old all the same. The only thing between your ride and the road are the rubber hoops - spend the cash and buy some new tyres. I have run Michelins for the last 6 years - Pilot road 2CT on the rear and a Power up front and have been very happy. Now if you really want it to handle, get yourself a set of Ohlins....
BTW looking at the photos again, the calipers are embossed with BMW - not so on the 2001 model which I believe has Brembo on them.
2002 K1200RS Ride #18. Owned from new. Pacific Blue of course. Suspended on Ohlins. 120,000+km
