tire question - January 16, 2007, 07:55 AM

So I got pilot powers after hearing so many good things...

Well after an awesome Jan. weekend I was checking out my brand new tires and noticed that I had rubbed the tire to a milimeter from the edge. On my 208s (which I used consistently for a while) I always had a larger non rubbed spot. So does this mean I am going to low side soon?

No this means you need to go and do track days and stop riding like a banche on the street! Heh could be a different profile tire or they work better with the setup on your bike.

like Dodge said it's either the profile or you're not hanging off the bike much if any.

I hang. I hang at the wrong times i think. I'll try hanging further. I need pants/cups.

If you hang off then it's probably the profile...remember...if you want to ride fast...go to the track

It's most likely the different tire profile that is causing the change in wear pattern.

The man is wearing off his chicken strips and you give him crap. Good Job EndPL! That said I still don't understand why you buy "track" tires for the street.

It's the profile of the powers. They are taller. It just means you are leaning farther then before.

I agree with space on not giving him shit for wearing off the strips. I've never hit a track day and I don't have them. You don't have to be going track speeds to lean a bike all the way over.


God Speed Jeff! You'll never be forgotten.
