I'm guessing this is from MSRH?

cold tear, either suspension is off, or you let the tire cool down before getting on them.

Pressures and suspension are the two most common culprits for tearing issues, often tire warmers won't fix the problem. I had the same issue at H2R yesterday with the front. I had tearing on both left and right side of my front tire, and eventually tearing on the left side of the rear.

I resolved the problem with a swift phone call to John at SCRC who diagnosed the problem quickly and gave me a solution that worked. In my case, it worked for me to drop the pressures.

full slicks without warmers? Crazy. You probably need to drop pressure or get warmers. It appears you're beating up that tire before it has a chance to come to temp.

Dont think so.....

I just sold my street bike to add some things to my track collection, and I still can think of tons of stuff I still want to buy.
