Re: Which tires, non track?
got the dunlop q3's installed today, 190/55/17 120/70/17's and holy crap what a difference. We don't have twisties here in South Florida but its amazing how the bike just rolls now. Because both front and back tires had flat spots I was always kind of grooved in, now I just float around the lane lol.
The few turns I do have here, its easy to see how gentle and quick it rolls into the turns. amazing. I got to see how they do in the rain too, (FL crap again) beautiful and out of no where, rain storm. Still did great.
Side note, the guy who did the install didn't use a machine to balance them instead did it the old fashion way where you just spin the tire on a balancer and looking to see which way its heavy and add weights. He had the machine there but said this was better. But I kind of feel a thud thud thud at 47-51mph, in that range. It's not exactly an unbalanced feel not like a car at least, almost feels like the sticker is on it if that makes sense.
Is there a break in maybe?
Maybe I'll just buy those balance beads and put them in? anyone know if they work well?
