A few curious questions?

If oil has been on a tyre for the past 2 weeks, could it be detrimental to the tyre?
For visual referance;



How do I change the gear shift to gp style on the srad?

What's faster, rider being equal.....an XRO srad, or a K6 thou?....Just curious!

trackday, or race schooling? In other words, what would you get more out of.....3 trackdays, or one day at a race school?

Which race school? Ron Haslam, Chris Walker, or CCS?

How does one back it in?......Intuition says it's rear brake but have heard it's front brake only

I'll add a few more, when I remember

For street use the tire is ok, which is what you do with it, and even if it isn't... You crash on it anyway....
Flipping the knuckle linkage on the shaft at the transmission.
Depends on the track, how scared the owner is of scratching a irreplaceable xro, and how nice the k6 is...
I say Chris Walker, but we all know I am biased (helmet and all), and Ron Haslam was boring.
The fast way is front brake and engine brake, cheating and slow to rear brake.

Ouch....that hurt

Flipping the knuckle linkage on the shaft at the transmission.

Is that alot of work...not sure i'm understanding

Depends on the track, how scared the owner is of scratching a irreplaceable xro, and how nice the k6 is...

Neither giving a shit about their respective bike, Donnington, or Silverstone, any fast sweeping track....then?

I say Chris Walker, but we all know I am biased (helmet and all), and Ron Haslam was boring.

Yea not a fan of Haslam....Rea will show him a thing or 2 next season, i'm sure!

The fast way is front brake and engine brake, cheating and slow to rear brake.

Thanks

Re: A few curious questions?

1,if it been on there for two week bin it..as it will have contaminated the tyre

2,just turn it up side down as shown

3,xro9 +168 r/w bhp ....160kg all dry
k6 1000 176 at crank...166kg all dry

i gues the k6 would put pull the xro bike,but the xro bike would have a lot better suspension set as it is a wsb bike..

4,race school all day long,did have my rac rally licence done by a rally school,was very good,will be the same for a bike id say..

5 for a srad rider......the stalker as he will give you a ; little be more...

6,with smooth line to start and have the front end set up for you,as i bike not set up right pushed can let you down... money spent on set up can save you when you drop it..

Re: A few curious questions?

Just use the tire, I forgot to put the oil seal in the water pump, so my tires were standing in the oil puddle for over a month, a little ride and they are fine again.
But I wouldn't go to the track with them, but street is fine.

Yeah man but I bet 90% of people who read that have no idea what you are talking about. You know how they say a picture can speak 1000 words? This is the perfect example, because now they learn proper terminology, and also know what it looks like too.

Re: A few curious questions?

I am down with that, But early in the thread(2nd post, 1st response) it wasn't that obvious that I was going to have to break out the crayolas.
