'07 ZX6R with 120/180 medium rear. 4 days of use but Oak Hill is very rough of tires. The tire was good for a 1:52 at TWS (Texas World Speedway) with out trying to push it and with the "fixed" turn 1-2. I can send you some laps from TWS (Texas World Speedway) if you would like em.

Good information. Thank you. I did about 16 sessions with a BT002 hard compound on the gixxer 1000. In hindsight, it was probably two sessions too many. Felt like I had grip until a scary slide going onto the back stretch at MSR-H. Didn't have much warning before that.

180 & 190 only. The BT090 is the SV650 DOT. I have plenty of people racing on the tire....and winning. Blair Krogh, Brandon Spradling, Gary Giarratano. Eric Falt (Faltless Racing) Did 6 hours on this tire at Hallett, and won the Formula 2 division.

With that said, I am, and have been, putting pressure on Bridgestone to supply a updated DOT for the SV650's.
