Stock tires on CBR1k

Got a question about the stock tires on my 08 CBR1k. I was out riding with a group this weekend and when I pulled out of a gas stop my back end walked. I did not lay it down, I backed off the throttle and rode it out.

I was just wondering how much was me over throttling... the road maybe a little oily... or the stock tire may have made me a little slicker. How much do softer sticker tires help??

I rode level 2 at the track with the same bike and tires without trouble. I just replaced it with a Bridgestone 16 due to wear. You might check air pressure. I am willing to bet the tire had to much air for the riding you were doing.

If it was leaving the gas station turning left onto 90 before hitting 149 to return home, it always happens there. The paint line coupled w the road turning away from you in a hard blind curve all adds to a little slippage. Fun thing is next time you'll expect it and ride it out longer

That's exactly where it was... I was totally wondering what was happening.. I set the tire pressure at the manual recomended cold pressure before heading out that morning.

Here we go. It's funny that when someone gives their car too much gas and they slide a little they rarely blame the tires and or recommended tire pressure

Remember, "recommended pressure" is at "capacity." The manufactors are assuming that you're riding two-up (or 370 or so pounds).

If you're commuting, run the recommended pressures. For play-time, I'd do some adjusting down the scale. Pressures will depend on the tires, riding style, condition, etc.

recommended pressure is just fine for pulling out of a gas station

Guys, thanks for all the feed back.. gives me alot to think about.... I was really wondering, trying to understand what dynamics were at work, I wasn't being super aggressive when pulling out.

Im sure it was either gas/oil or something on the pavement coupled with a bit too much throttle.

What comes stock on those bikes anyway?
