yeah.. i wasnt complaining about the tires. i just know they are getting hella hot. and didnt want to risk over heating them. but if your running 2'00 then i should be ok.. are you not lowering the tire pressure alot so they dont heat as much or what.. im just wondering. i havent had ne thing bad happen that i didnt cause. i slid a lil in T11 but i was gassing it leaned over. more advice on how to run with out over heating the street tires.

You need to be monitoring your growth in pressure is all. 4lbs is ideal. Adjust accordingly. 31 front 29 back for cold tires at the track is a good place to start.

I got 5 out of the BT-002 all at TWS (Texas World Speedway). They looked like they still had more as well but, I laid the bike down instead.

so i should check my tire pressure through out the day and keep it 4psi over what i started at (WHEN ITS HOT). what about tire temps what are ideal and what its to hot. or will it just get greasy and not want to stick when its to hot. i really need to learn more about tires.....

ex. i ran 29,29 cuz it started kinda cool out last weekend ... so i should not let it get over 33psi when the tire heats.?? and if it does i should adjust accordingly

It is all preference. You will want to check the tire pressure all day long yes if nescessary but usually a check in the morning when it is cool is at least the minimum. Your tires are going to cool down in between sessions as well. Really the best thing is tire warmers. This way you are running about 35 -36 in the front and 33 - 34 in the rear at opperating tempature. It is all about tires and suspension. So learn learn learn. talk to Pat or the other tire guys when you are out there. That is the best time.

psi is a preference thing, but unless I'm mistaken , lowering actually heats your tires rather than cooling them. The added flex they get tends to generate heat.

yeah thats what i mean.. but if your pushing it harder with higher pressure you can probably still get them heated because your pushing them more... then if you dropped the psi alot and didnt ride as hard..

Update: If I run at Oak Hill, I only get 2 trackdays out of these tires. Man that track is rough on tires.
