Heat cycles bro. To get the most performance and longevity out of them you need warmers. Some of the faster guys around here that dont crash often did so when they went out not knowing their warmers were off. Dont risk it man.

My Point is that they are not a "want", warmers truly are a need if you're running l3 times and using race spec tires. Otherwise you're throwing away money on rubber and risking your bike and your body. Period. I got mine for $125 used... Well worth it.

$$$ is why Im stil sloooow...lmao ya bro save up and get some warmers. I have suzuka single temp and they work fine. They are $300. Not too bad when you compare them to chicken hawks. They have good warranty and they will last youna while unless you decide you want to leave them on for your warm up lap

*Pirelli Race Tires ~ 400 USD
*BStone RT10 ~ 410 USD
*Dunlop GP (UK Version) ~ 500 USD.

Hopefully they are not like the 003's that had a reputation for wearing out really fast. Because at that price, they should last as long as the Dunlop UKs for them to be the best bang for the buck.

I am still going to try them though.
The D211GP-A's are $339 & the AMA Spec's are $369-

anyone else tried this tire yet? if so.....

1) hows it feel??
2) was it good?
3) how much did they cost?
4) how do they compare to other tires youve used?
5) what kind of hot/cold pressures were you running on them?


-B
Comparable to a GPA with better grip IMO once they are hot hot.

Yes, it was good.

Affordable.

Last about as long as the Dunlops, not as long as the Pirellis, and I don't do
Michellins so I couldn't tell you about those.

Run the recommended pressure set by the distributor.

For those of you who've run r10's, how many track days/races/etc did you get out of the hard compounds?
4 sprint races (novice) and once track day at about 75% of effort.

Like.. "4 trackdays L2 pace" " X number races" or something like that. I think we all swap tires when needed lol... I'm just wondering what to expect from these.
When they go you'll be the first to know.

I don't think they offer the $150 single temp any more. If you have ?'s about MotoD ask Track Junkie or go to track-junkie.com

Hope that helps!!!
