Continental have a very good reputation in Europe, they're a German company, whereas IRC are virtually unheard of, and they get slated by the motorcycle press over here. I can't speak for the Conti's that come as standard on the Indian models, as I've never ridden one with them on, but I don't have a problem with the IRC's on mine. I do ride in all weathers, but I don't push it to the limits, being a commuter, and not wanting to die young.I have heard you India guys have a different tire than the rest of us got...for whatever reason the outer layer on your tire is harder, thus causing slipping-stepping out at speeds on corners...I have read other places that doing a burnout on the back tire to scrub off the hard layer helps..but ur best bet is a new back tire from another manufacturer
1]the tyre pressure as suggested is with rider$pillon=29 32 i hav kept it 29 31 b'coz sum times thr's pillon with me n some time no. SO is it right to keep this sort of pressure.One: Check the air pressure in the tires. Even if it's down only a few pounds, it will add a lot of instability to the bike.
Two: Check your technique. You should:
Sportbikes by nature are more sensitive than crusiers - the center-of-gravity is higher, the fork angles are different, and the bikes are generally shorter. This is not a bad thing: it's what makes them so fun to ride.
- Approach the turn on the line you want to take
- Brake before the turn to slow to the correct speed
- Brakes off, lean into the turn by using counter-steering, body english, or a combination of the two.
- Roll the throttle back in - not a lot, but enough to make the weight neutral.
- Try to hold a constant line and angle through the turn
- Counter-steer to bring the bike back upright
Other things you might check are:
- Make sure that a chain adjustment has not resulted in the rear wheel being misaligned.
- Check the fork alignment - has the bike been dropped?
Do you hang off the bike to lean a curve? or just sit flat on the seat and let the lean do all the cornering?........i had the back slipping out time to time before i learned to take corners properly......i.e. hanging off the side of the bike so you dont have to lean so low.....Much better tractionhey guys,
actually when i m turning my bike the back tyre seems to be slipping.
I'm sure in our manual its 29/29 single and 29/33 for pillion. I however run mine 29/33 at all times, and have had no issues.1]the tyre pressure as suggested is with rider$pillon=29 32 i hav kept it 29 31 b'coz sum times thr's pillon with me n some time no.

I'm not sure thats a good idea. You might damage your tyre that way. But I have to say that I've never heard of someone softening their tyre before so I just might be uninformed on that matter.indian cbrs are equipped with contigo tyres, and i have completed 14000 kilometers still tyres looks like new ,with these tyres i have never imagined to go fast on curves , though pirreli diablo rosso 2 isnnt availabe herein india now i have aquired acetone, transmission fluid, turpentine, will mix and make tyre softner , will test it on another tyre and see the results
