Huhuhu, last session with u. My rear tyre slide and went to gravel. Manage to save the bike from falling.

The right portion of tyre was worn off.

 

Anyway, i'll b testing my new 180/60. Hopefully it works out fine. Did some geometry adjustment.

What's the benefit of increasing rear tyre height?

It suppose to give more contact patch while leaned over.

However i'm having issues with it. It coild be my suspension setting or my bike geometry.

Anyway i will try to sort it out on this coming trackday.

A bike that will oversteer and become extremely twitchy in the corners with a lot of fishtailing under hard deceleration.

 

Been there done that with my CBR600.

 

Adjustments will need to be made to the ride height of the rear shocks to compensate for the higher profile tyre.

Dont understand this question....but the Roman Emperor is my idol thought :thumb:

 

I was a born again rider. Layoff bikes for 8 years and bought a nearly stock old R6 one year ago. Spent 4 months building up the bike for track and have been going to track on a monthly basis.

 

My R6 is up for sale now as i feel i'm ready to try 1000cc bikes now...

We were at Sepang track last week. You can see my video below if you are interested in SIC layout.

I was one of the very few 600cc bikes in a sea of 1000cc bikes there...

 

 

Great Video.. 600cc is still the best!!!

For a experienced rider i would agree but for a novice, diablos SC2 are not necessary unless you have $$ to spend. Dragons SC2 are good enough...

 

I choose to disagree with you here.

 

A novice will have the tendency to go in too hot for his liking in the corners.. and they tend to crash out because they try to pull the bike back into the line. At this point in time.. its the grip from the tyres that matter.

 

Seen too many of these mistakes at the track before.

 

If you can afford it... fresh tyres and if possible the best tyres if you are going to try playing on the track. Spending money on better tyres is cheaper than buying new fairings.

At the track, i'll ask t marshall to wear TP uniform and stand at turn 2 with radar gun and camera.

U will instantly close throttle and brake.

Slow slow also.
