Well lets see, this past weekend at Hallett, was the introduction weekend for the BT003. On the novice side we had 5 race wins, 4 PODIUM SWEEPS. Thats right 1st, 2nd & 3rd...all on the BT003's. On the expert side we had multiple top 5's and a couple of podiums, including a win for Derek Wagnon (1st expert win ever) on his first wekend on the tires.

The pressures are lower & the grip is amazing, Trickle down MotoGP FTW!

120/180 combo's = $329
120/190 combo's = $339

Availability is getting better, and once I get a little more supply info I will be blowing out the BT002's (Still a great tire). The BT003's are simply amazing.

In a nutshell, would these be better suited for a trackday rider with 2 days exp or would the BT-002's be better, OR is that a stupid question, my bad just can't find a whole lot of info about these new tires.

Pretty much, the BT002 is plenty tire. If your riding trackdays only, then I would save the $$ and get a set of the BT002 Pro's

BT002 Pro's
120/180 = $298
120/190 = $310

BT003
120/180 = $329
120/190 = $339

Remember that availability is still tight, but I am hoping to have that fixed soon.

same here. I got one more set of Corsa III's to go thru that are in my garage and then on to the pro's. I'm either going to get BT-002's from Kawi jm or the Pirelli Supercorsa Pro from Larry. Hadn't decided yet. I guess it will depend on good timing when kawi jm has his fire sale on the BT-002 pro. My bike just a track bike now to.

bt002s on the lstd bikes

we've run the bridgestones all season.
we've raced with them and done track days with them.
and on track days, we run 'em down to nothing and then some.
i think they will outlast most other tires(we've run all brands)
not only that, you've got john hutchinson there for advice, whether it's hot,cold,rainy or whatever.
the new ones are exciting but the "old" ones are still exceptional tires.
we really like them.
i'll munch on my bridgestone hat if you don't love 'em.

Hey John... I need some 120/180 002s!

Will you have the 003's for July's CMRA and CCS races???

What do you suggest for compounds in this 80-90 weather?

I raced the '002s on Sat and the '003s on Sunday. Both tires work great but I did go a tad faster on the '003s. I think once I get the bike set up Ill go even faster on them. I only did 2 races on the '003s and ended up 4th in css expert on a bike I never raced before with no practice. I know they will continue to be brand to be on. Ill report later when I get more use out of em.
