Pirelli Superbike SC2 200/60 for 2015 R1M

Anyone tried Pirelli Superbike 200/60 (SC2 or the new SC3) slicks on the 2015 R1? Would the 60 profile mess with the traction control? any suspension issues? of course this is only for dry track day use.

Thanks to al

I know I was told to not get a 200/50 profile but I'm curious as to the answer.

If you change the tire profile then I would suspect it will alter the TC parameters so there might be an issue yes.

Suspension issues, well that's a big can of worms really because it depends on the rider, conditions, style and so many other things. I say try them, they are just tires after all not a WSBK-Spec engine build.

Hopefully someone who actually tried the tires can chip in soon.
