my front 2ct still has some life left. the rear on the other hand only has one track day left in it so thats the reason i'm looking into the 002. is the combination of a 2ct front and a 002 rear comparable?

No they aren't. The 2ct is more of a street foucuse tire with occassional td use. The 002RS is the opposite...more of a td tire with the occasional street use.

What he said. If it were me, I'd get another 2ct rear. By the time you've warn out the second rear you'll likely be at a pace to take full advantage of BT002s, and you'll probably need to replace both tires at that time os you can get a pair.

Lots of people get two rear tires out of one front tire.

I'd go with popo on this one.

I disagree. Get a set of 002 for 240.00 free mount and balance, loose wheel from John at the track on Saturday. Keep the front 2ct take off and sell it for 50bux or something on MH.

Net a brand new set of 002rs for 190.00. wooooot woooooot!

I mean, what does a 2ct rear cost?? 170ish? maybe 190ish? Insane.

I agree. However if he wants to be able to get some descent street life it isn't.

Race rubber(the ones you need tire warmers on)
Etc...

If needed:
Rearsets

Invest in trackside items such as:
Small compressor
Stands
Tools(I need to fo this one day )
Toy hauler


Quick Shifters are the !!!!! I have one on my Gixxer. Holy , why don't these come standard on bikes off the showroom floor yet! Only problem is mine is standard shift, so if I want to throw it into GP shift I have to buy a new quick shifter. So, if you are going to toss a shifter on there, take time to think if you want standard or gp shift so you don't get stuck buying two of them!

I didn't like the 16's but then again I'm slow and fat so....

Seat time is the best investment.

From personal experience 2cts have marginally more grip than BT016s.

i was just using it for reference curt. to support what you were telling brandt. they help more than you would think especially when you can see what you were doing right or wrong. will make you faster. plus you can upload different tracks then transfer the info to your computer for later review

I am currently running a BT02 on the front and a 2ct rear. Works fine for me. Once everything gets to temp it sticks fine. Sometimes you just gotta run whatcha brung.

Derek, just grow with me bro. Just get those EBC extreme pro HH pads I have and stick with the 2cts. The pads and maybe lines and brake fluid will increase your confidence. All you need are pads and tires for TRUST in the bike and seat time. Good luck this weekend!
