I just got off the phone with the dunlop rep. He recommended I go with the 190/60 for my 600 this year.

Anyone try this? Is this on the stock 5.5 wheel, or did the AMA guys do this while going to the 6.0 rear wheel?

I did and the thing is the shit!!! allows you to get on the gas sooner without wheel spin, offers more contact patch.
How much ride height did you have to change? Any clearance problems with the swing arm? Did you use a 5.5 wheel? Did your turn in suffer?

we added the same set up we would use for slicks, no clearance problems at all. we raised the rear by 4mm and we had no turn in issues... and yes i used the 5.5 rim.

you lower the rear by 4-6mm because the tire is taller., and it fits the 5.5 rim fine.,
normally you would cause the tire is taller, but on my gsxr we had to add an extra because of turn in. on the R6 we lowered it by 4mm and had to move the wheel back to give more room upfront.

I also was stumped by Fever's reasoning


What compound did you guys run? Soft Front, +1 Rear?

I just got the 2005 Dunlop Tech sheet for the new tires "Sportmax GP" if anyone is interested...pm me.

now you of all people should remember what max said.. if you have a turn in problem you lower the front not raise the rear..

i had payed with front and liked the results i had gotten with the rear, my bike was set up radically and we all know how i like my bikes.... the faster turn in the better, when i dropped the front it felt as if the front wanted to tuck in

yes but not turning fast enough...
what you'll notice in the gsxr since its a lazy turning bike to begin with, you have to do more adjustments than you would in an R6. Do you not remember me fucking with it at CTR? going back and forth from dunlop?
