There are some new stinkos that looks pretty good. They are new though. I was looking at them with Sunny the other day. Im not saying I would buy them though.
Coast rider is a ball sack sucker. We dont buy the 003 for the price. They are a great drag tire.

If you're not doing track days shinko's work just fine. If you can outride them on the street, you're probably going to die anyway from being a poser monkey no matter what tire you're on. Racing is for the track.

I read correctly. Yo were talking about the 003, and I was talking about street or track tires.

The 010 looks good though

one word of caution about shinko's though.........

Do NOT run the raven front's. They are not as high of a speed rating & will self destruct on busa's & 14's

Dude you are crazy I think you have that backwards, the qualifiers are a POS. I have seen multiple bikes go down running those, I was on 1 of them. 42 rear and 36 front is good tire pressure for the street been running that for yrs. And put it in every bike at the shop.
