Does anyone ever worry about completely scrubbing in your tires? What do you do ? A parking lot and some tight turns? Simple green and a scrub brush? A burn out while lean your bike to the ground? How do you get off that last 3/4 to an inch? What do you do to break your tires in?

Ride and slowly increase the lean angles. Doesnt' take much to scuff off the compound release from the tire. For track only tires...a lap or two....then I'm off and running. Only 1 lap if I've had them on tire warmers. For street bike....5-8 miles slowly leaning more. You aren't having to wear away 1/4 inch of tread ya know.

Couple of weeks?! Good lord.

Shouldn't take more than 20 miles or so. Just gradually increase your angle and be prepared for little slippage. No biggie.


Right up the 1 hole.

That's what I've done in the past.. I'm curious if people have any strange things they do to get rid of their chicken strips other than just ride it after breaking in the tires and dragg their knees?

I scrubed my last set of BT-012SS's on the track (Summit Main). By the 3rd lap of the first session they were fine. These were 0-mile tires installed that morning.

Now granted, it was 3 very interesting laps.

You have two options here:

1) Learn to fucking ride better.

or

2) Lose the fucking ego.


Either one will work, but I'd recommend both.

Honestly...I couldn't care less. Strips? Hell, I rock full on chicken wings on my whip. The center of my tire looks like it could fit on a monorail. To some people I'm known as the dude with pyramid shaped tires.

How about a propane torch with a rosebud head...while on stands...hand roll the tire...Nate should know why (luv ya nate) with 45 to 50 lbs in tire (over inflated). Torch on it and rotate 10 times with heat 4-5 inches away. Will cure problem....

If not scissors should do!!!!

I've only broken in one set of tires thus far. I promised myself I'd do one really easy lap, one relatively hard lap, and then one lap at 100% (my 100%, which is still slow as balls non-racer speed).

I can't keep promises. I made it one lap before dragging my knee for the first time ever on turn 1 on VIR North (in front of SteveZX9 if I remember correctly). So at the least one lap is enough for me.
