This is straight from a reputable shop around Houston, the race tire dealer backed up this statement as well.

"Race tires work in a higher and narrower band of temperature than street tires.
Race tires run on the street will probably not come fully up to temp and will be subjected to a bunch of heat cycles, further degrading their performance."

Tyres for the Street

I just fitted some Dunlpo Qualifier II's to my 09 R1. Whilst they took a few miles to remove the slippery coating now this is done they are awsome. Here in Enlgand it is not warm or dry and these are superb! They have bucket loads of grip (even in the cold and wet), they warm up realy very quickly and give loads of feedback which gives lots of confidence. This is exactly what you need in a tyre and I challenge anyone to really need anything more for the road...I can;t wait to try them out on the track!

^^^ Good feedback I am also looking for something new that will be more street friendly as currently I'm running the bt 002s and as soon as the temps drop I tippy toe around, but I absolutely love them on the track.

Have no Heroes, look up to no one, because if someone is always leading the way, the best you'll ever be is 2nd.

not a critisism - just a question - as like most i'm in neverland with tyres, feeling and pressures......
currently running Pirelli Dragon Supercorsas and hate them, its mostly wet, damp or cold over here so i need a good tyre for that (reliable) but will grip in the dry well, yes i scrape knees on the street so i want to be able to have some fun.
and as for tyre pressures pirelli and yamaha bother recommend 36F 42R so why wouldn't i run that pressure.
to be honest i'm currently running 34F 36R
dunno where you got your recommended pressures for a diablo or dragon supercorsa pro from... your pressures are WAY to high for that tyre which is probably why you hate them

i run about 30psi hot front and 28psi hot rear (subtract 5psi for track cold setting or about 4psi for cold street setting) use for compounds SC1 front and SC2 rear

if you want setup information from people who actually race on these tyres try diabloracer.com

Quote:
Start with hot pressures 31f / 26r. 60 min on the warmers @ 170f.
it is kind of funny to talk about tyre profile and tip in and low pressures affecting carcass flex and how you hate these tyres when you are running pressures suited for a commuting bike running BT021 commuting tyres in your R1 with race tyres!

i suggest that if you ARE dragging knee on the street and havent crashed you can thank those tyres for performing adequately despite your poor setup knowledge!

finally neither the diablo nor dragon supercorsa pro is a wet! they are for dry tarmac.. from what i read i think you might be better off with a BT045.. they are a great commuting tyre require very little temperature, stick awesome in the wet and give good milage i run them on my 350cc 2T commuter and if you stick your knee right out and hang off like a monkey you will drag knee with them too!

You can run race tires if you take the time to warm them and dont push them to their limits. I wouldnt drag my knee on the street anyway. There is no trophy at the end of the road right?

and DOT race type IMO sucks for damp wet conditions on the street. I did however last year go into turn 1 at thunderhill at the same time a microburst happened. Not a darn thing happened- no slippage nothing. I attribute that to I had the tires at operating temps and I did not do any dramatic input (mainly because I was paralyzed with fear )

I always ride with the GP Racers D211. If you tend them and use em for the twisties and not powerslides, wheelies, highspeed runs and etc, they last suprisingly long too.

track tires on the street

I'll use my Dunlop GPA DOT racers on the street if it's warm to hot out... No problem.. I just put a little heat in them first before I use them hard....... There definitely greasy if it's cold out though....
