Re: LSR tyres?
It all starts with a rule book...the fine print can change each year.
Where do you plan on running and under which Sanctioning Body? Australia's excellent DLRA closely mirrors the SCTA, but not on everything.
Which class, what record?
You have to build your vehicle, and have the gear, to meet the current record's speed requirements, not what you think it might eventually do.
SCTA tire choices for over 200mph are quite limited. My experience with them this year, was an absolute shit show...but in the end, it's their sand box.
I now have Dunlops that have been tested at over 300, so that shouldn't be an issue next time.
AMA encourages riders to choose the tires, that essentially they are comfortable with, within reason.
I don't keep up with the FIM.
Again, get an applicable rule book for where you plan on running, and with whom. Each group has slightly different requirements to make it past their Tech Inspection.
What works for someone else, might not work best for you...considering different speeds, bike weight etc.
This is an exciting path, please keep us posted on your progress.
