So far I have 4 level 2 track days (1:55 or so at MSRH) the the R10's on my R6. The rear still has enough rubber left for maybe another 2, maybe 3 days. Medium 190 rear, and soft front.

I run a ZX10R in Advanced. Edit: I run +/- 1.50 at MSRH and +/- 2.00 at TWS (Texas World Speedway). I never ran a sub two until I switched to these tires.

I went back and checked some notes. I got about 500 miles out of the rear between a mix of MSRH and TWS (Texas World Speedway). One rear was changed due to timing more than anything. I was possibly going to run an event SCRC wouldn't be at so I wanted to be sure I was good to go. Same front has that plus three TWS (Texas World Speedway) days. The rear with the three TWS (Texas World Speedway) days looks good still.

You will burn through the tread marks, but they still perform well when they look almost like a slick. I will probably use up the first rear (I have two sets of wheels and it's still mounted) when the second rear is up to change. Then I'll probably go for a new full set.

awesome. Thanks for the info.

I'd picked up 3 sets with a few races on them, I run a zx6 in L2 or L3 , running ~1:55 at msrh, 205 TWS (Texas World Speedway).

Figure each set should last me 2-3 days then.

Maybe a few more days than that. Seen them last over 10 trackdays in level 2-3 pace

I ran some takeoff's that john H. over at P1 racing sold me

obviously BST r-10 tires.

it was like 75 or 100 a set, and it was about 45% life left.

let me tell you something...

They are slippery as (compaired to street tires) for the first lap, but after that they heat up fairly quick, and once they were hot, i was railing corners.

at the bus stop, that was the only corner i was getting alot of slippage, but that was because i was flipping the bike too hard lol.

all in all, great grip, near the end of the day Krase Kris (47) towed me around for some sub 2 min laps.

I was TRYING to push the tire on turn exit.. and it wouldn't break loose (with proper throttle) dont go out there thinking you can just wromp on it.


uhmmm as far as life goes, it was at 45% and i would say i have a track day or two left in them now.

so awesome tire life aswell!


im sure im missing so much so if you have any direct questions about the tires or (my opinion) on certain corners on the tires, please ask me!

im more than willing to give my review!

i didnt know that, im near there, ill take it out 2 more track days and test your theory lol

anything i should know before i push it to that limit?

I'm not saying run it to the cords; but yes, life is still there when it looks like the tread is gone.

I really appreciate all the input guys- I am quite satisfied with my purchase.

I've still got an ntec front to burn through (which may never happen) and a gpa rear with half or more life left... But after p1 setup my TTX I was dropping time and shredding a little harder at TWS (Texas World Speedway). Just happy now knowing these tHese will last several trackdays Or more

No, try em. You'll need them every time after, even if you run street tires. Trust me, and ask around.

Once you know what it's like to ride with confidence on your first lap, and know you have the correct pressures... Not running warmers is not an option.

I like them. I have had the front on for 5 days on my gsxr 600. The front still looks to have 3-4 more days left. of course im slow..LOL I run a 1:50 at msrh and 2:02 at TWS (Texas World Speedway)(TWS (Texas World Speedway) scares me lol). The tires arevery stable mid corner. When they break loose they are very progresssive too. These tires inspire a load of confidence. Just try them and you form your own opinion. They also scrub in really fast.
