Conti Sport Attacks on tard?

So...my new to me KTM Duke II came with a brand spanking new set of Conti Sport Attack tires still in the shipping binding. The Dunlop Qualifiers on it now are in decent shape, but my question is if anyone has run the Conti Sport Attacks on their tard?

I happen to like Stones and Pirelli from SCRC, and am leaning to selling the Contis and just buying a set at the next GSS track day. Before I take that action though, what are opinions on the Conti Sport Attacks?

I ran the Conti SM tires and they were great for street use, but when pushed at the track harder, they sucked a bit.

No clue how they work. If it's in your mind, you may end up on your head. I'd say sell them, slap on some Pirellis and call it good. That Duke is way too pretty to toss down the track.

I'd love to, but quit my job and took a new one in Austin. Commuting back and forth now during the week, but will be moving to Austin Mid December.

Mounted them and ran them today. I ran a higher pressure than normal for Stones or Pirelli tires. Actually pretty nice for the pace I was running today. Not sure how they would do for a "fast" rider on a 450 tard, but I liked them.

Warm up was realtively quick, no sliding or stuff. I will be running them on the street mainly and they should be good to go. When they run out of life, I'll switch back to Stones or Pirelli's.

Overall, I'd say they are pretty good at a decent, but not fast, pace.

Yeah, I am not sure what to make of it... I obviously needed to run it at higher RPM for longer periods of time. Not comfortable yet with a bike that doesnt blow itself up. I will try harder next time.
