Burnout on rear tire

What is the purpose of doing a burnout when you get a new tire? Is it really necessary? Thanks for all comments.

It's not neccessary. just take it easy to wear it in.

For the ones that does, maybe for the squid status or showing off that they could do burn out.

actually, that's what i do, as do many many many others on the track. i change tires after bout 3 trackdays....so pretty often.

you gotta ride around and scrub the tire before givin it your all.....just don't gas too much or come in too fast.......and the tires will scrub away usually in the 1st lap.

most people who grid up for the races (road racing not drag) you'll see leave the pits on their warm up lap with brand new rubber.....they use the warm up lap to scrub the tires in

By burning out the tire you actually can make the tire more slick.

The oils in the tire come to the surface and than harden there much like plastic. Also, the loss of the oils in the tire can cause faster wear, think of heat cycles on a race tire.

My 2 cents? Just take it easy the first 20 -30 miles or so and don't ham fist the throttle and you'll be o.k.

+2 most race take offs still have tread, but are through due to heat cycle issues.
Not to mention tires are EXPENSIVE and that is wasted tread as if the highway wont waste enough of that center section.

The tire needs a few heat cycles to take a set. Ride it easy like Patrick said for the first 20-30 miles. Don't be afraid to lean, just don't try to drag the pegs and pin the throttle.

My company is a rubber manufacturer - we also have mold release on the surface, and it helps protect during transport and installation too.

We recommend wiping the surface down with denatured alcohol, which removes the mold release. Is it feasible to do this to a motorcycle tire? I don't know, but for the cost of a bottle of denatured alcohol, it would certainly be worth a try!

But it might not be just mold-release. I think it's this: rubber has waxes in it. These waxes percolate up to the surface always. It's more likely that new tires are coated in this "bloom" as we call it - which would be slicker than the rubber itself, and has to do with the rubber not being touched since manufacturing. This would occur on any tire that's been sitting for a long time without riding...

Any solvent would likely take it off... then again, so would sand paper and dirt riding, but that's also removing rubber...

I always roast the front tire too, just to make the service technicians wonder WTF
