So, I’m always hearing about people having issues with their tires at the track. Cold tear, hot tear, rebound, shock, blah blah tear. I see people ride half a freggin day on a brand new set of DOTs or slicks, and their tire looks like it went through a meat grinder while on fire…both riders faster AND slower than myself are ending up out ~$350 for a set of tires after a HALF DAY.
Tire vendors love you. Your husband/wife hates you. The Abominable Tire Monster has you.
There’s a VERY simple solution to maximizing your tires’ life as well as grip…We all want our tires to last and stick, right?

What’s so special about the DOT slicks that are on my GSXR600?
Well, those tires have FIFTEEN (15) A and B group sessions at Reno Fernley Raceway this past weekend and 80+ laps at A-pace at Thunderhill raceway. I haven’t cleaned or washed or altered or ridden the tires in ANY way since it’s last lap at Thunderhill on Monday either. It’s just been sitting in the garage on the rear stand.
O RLY? YA SRSLY!
You wanna know how I do it?
Pretty freggin easy:
So go get yourself some proper Pirelli rubber, and have Dave set up your flapper into the golden bike it should be!
