  • Track Tyres

    Go new to Perth, what are the recommendations for where to get bike tyres in Perth.

    Cheers

    What size are you after? What is your intended use? Trackdays or racing?

    Search for my review of the Michelin Power One race tyre. I've been on them this year and they are great. I get mine @ tyres for bikes.

          You can get the Power One in a 160 rear. You'll have to order it but it will only take a day or two.

          The TRX could probably make due with a good street oriented tyre like the Pilot Power or Pirelli Diablo.

            I have a question which is vaguely related to this.

            I have pilot roads on the R1, they feel alright on the road in the dry but suck balls in the wet.

            I was thinking of doing a trackday this month on it, not sure if the pilot roads will suffice or if i should borrow a more track-orientated set for the day...

                  I'm using Diablo's and they work great on the TRX!

                  Some road and some track work.

                      Think i have secured a near new pirelli diablo to put on the rear. Anyone have a matching front with good tread they want out of the garage?

                        Since when do you use the front Yags?
