you dont need to have matching tires or race tires to ride at the track. all you need is some tires with good tread left, then get patrick to tune the suspension.

i rode my first track day with a untouched supension an ran 2:15. then he tuned it the next track day there at the track and had to get use to the bike all over again cuz the bike felt COMPLETELY diffrent. i got use to it after lunch then i wrecked* right:

If you're gonna take it easy the first time out which most probably will happend since you have never been out there and haven't seen the track, then it is acceptable to go as is. Once you feel confident and start pushing a bit more I would highly recommend getting at least matching tires and if you can get some old take offs from someone to start it would be even better. hope this helps right:

Re: what tires do you run at the track?

i like the bt014's but even with the POS Continental Contitec tires which by the way are hard as , they did pretty well, i was impressed with the way they performed for me. i wish i had a better set of tires on the bike, i coulda run alot faster than i did... tires are well worth it, i think my next set will be the 002's
