Scorpio,
I have the 601 SS in stock
$115 / set
BTW they are not slicks, they have DOT type grooves, but very minimal. Awesome tires!

How is the street 002 compared to pro 002? I like street version because of lack of tire warmers.

Are those price for mount and balance also? Taxes?

All prices are plus tax. Mount & balance is free with the wheels off the bike.
Motorcycles Unlimited is usually on hand, at the track, to take your wheels off, if you need that service. I'm not sure what they charge for that though.

The 002 street is essentailly a race carcass design, but it tends to flex easier than a race carcass. Thus heating up quicker for street use, and track use w/o warmers. The rubber is also much more street friendly than the 002 Pro, but better suited for track duties than the BT014. It tends to blur the lines between a race tire and a street tire, kind of the best of both worlds.

John,

When will you close up shop at MSRH on Saturday? I can probably get a full day out of the tires on it, but no way they will make my next one at TWS (Texas World Speedway).

Naw the Michelins would slow me down lol

Glen,
If you need me to stay to get a set at the end of the day, we will work it out. I'll take care of you.

Also I have spoke with Patrick and it seems as they will not be attending this event. So I am going to offer my services for removing the wheels. It will be $35 a wheel for me to remove the wheel and you will still get free mount & balance with the purchase of the tire.

If the new generation of tires are coming out with dual compound, why buy race compound and worry about tire warmers and electric generators if there is no power supply at the track facility?

How close of performance between the street and race compound?
Is regular Pilot power tire good enough for a rider that could turn 1'50's at msrh? If a rider could turn 1'40's what tire would be suited for this performance?
How does anyone determine what tires are capable at what speed in corners?
Tire warmers, why not buy single temp? What is the purpose of adjustable temp? I know different brand tires have different heat specs but if I have power race, would the single temp warmers be enough? All this choices is confusing me.:confused2

Let me see if I can answer your questions. When do you need race tires? Well in my opinion if you have a track only bike then I'd suggest race tires. As a rule of thumb race tires are more predictable and linear over the course of their life span. Street tires can become less and less predictable as they wear.

Why buy the ''Pro'' tires? The 002 Pro is a full on race tire, available in a full assortment of sizes and compounds. The 002 racing/street is based on the ''Pro'' and for many street riders offers a good mix of performance with the ease of not needing warmers. Also you can still ride them on the street and get some good use out of them. They will out perform most any street tire on the track.
On the warmers it is simply an opinion thing. I like the single temp warmers. Simple and very durable. Some people just like to have that extra level of adjustability, so that is why I offer them, FYI personally I use the single temps.
