DR2 and Supercorsa was always 31F/27R, as per their instructions, it works.
Bridgestone doesn't have the track support Pirelli do,




The more I learn about tyres, the more the theory goes out the window.

We don't use warmers in our class so I had been running 29R/30F hot off the track, the rear wasn't lasting too well though.

Must be dangerous without warmers, stuff that.

Not sure how to post videos, @MotoMike


My cbr is running quite sweet at this early stage.
Bought it unknown not running for 5 years.

Aufitt, in the Youtube edit did you tick the box to allow for third party content (or something like that - at work so I can't check exact wording).

Are tire warmers really worth it? I am asking as now that I am healthy again I will be doing more track days, but the bike will still be used for street riding also. I'll say I might hit the track 6 times in a year due to my working schedule of 28 days on 28 days off.

Another question will the tire warmers fit any size tires? I am stock on my 250 140 rear, my 1000 is a 180 stock rear, both will be seeing the track, as expensive as tire warmers are i would hate to have to buy for both bikes.

Tire warmers greatly increase tire life, a full size rear will fit but not properly

What do you mean by not properly?

I know there is a major difference in tire size between 140 and 180 if I get for the bigger will it damage the warmer on a smaller tire?

Also I have looked and to buy quantity is 1 not sure if that is front and rear or just 1 only any ideas?

Another question.

SInce I havent bought my race fairings yet, I still have the tail and head lights on the bike. I have tried to unplug the complete rear harness for the tail/brake lights & turn signals, once I do that the bike will no longer start. (I have led brake with integrated turn signals) so just removing the bulb isnt an option. What is the work around for this problem? A lot of you have race fairings how did you go about not plugging it in since there is no place to install the brakes lights on race fairings?
