Put my baby down last night.. - October 22, 2008, 08:11 AM

So I was leaving my parking lot and theres a nice turn that I always lean into on the way out.. so yesterday did my normal lean and when i came out of the turn I came up and the rear just slid out to the right. Laid her down on the left side. frame slider snapped on impact probably because of the cold weather.. so the bike slid on the upper left fairing.. all in all bike is alrgiht.. just a cracked fairing and bent clutch lever..I just gotta get some new tires.. these race tires are noo good in cold. take too long to heat up. ooooops


ay ya yay

yeah, that is the common problem with this weather and these types of tires. you gotta take it easy. So many of my friends have gone down just like you, and its due to the weather and tires not getting to temp.

glad that its just a wee bit that was dinged and was minor.

Sorry about your crash. I had a similar incident myself leaving the house yesterday. My tires got wet rolling through the yard and she stepped out big time when I rolled on turning out of my neighborhood. Luck and being on a supermoto saved my ass.

This is going to spark another race rubber/takeoff debate but whatever. You will never get race rubber to proper carcass temp on the street even if it's 100+ out. They will do fine during the summer months if they are in good shape but will not reach optimal temp. You'll get enough to get good traction but not what the tires are completely capable of. During the winter...not a chance.

Are you using no-cut sliders?

Yea I had no cut sliders. The rear spools held up great and did their job but the front one just snapped. My clutch lever took the grunt of the rubbing.. its bent it into a hook shape. kinda funny actually.

You have to watch those no-cut sliders because they tend to snap on impact. Especially if that impact is straight down or if they hit something while the bike is sliding along.

Spools rule unless you're me. I actually tore a mount on my RC51 off during a lowside at Summit several years ago.

Most of the mounts are cheap, and the sliders are plastic not a delrin blend of some sort.

Spending good money on sliders is worth it.

Only way I would have lost that is by backing out of the gas. No way man. All or nothing. I'm taking the podium in the Gran Prix of Alexandria Workplaces.

I recommend the Lockhart Phillips sliders...both stillie and I run them, and have, lets just say "destructively tested" them quite a few times and they hold up very well.
