  1. I have my first track day coming up and still have original tyre on the bikes. After reading a review of the bike when launched at Phillip Island last night I am thinking I should be upgrading the rubber. I am certainly not a super fast rider so any suggestions, will the OEM tyres be fine for me novice level or should I upgrade?

  2. Save your $ mate. Tyres will be fine for first few track days
  3. That's what I was hoping, cheers for the advice.
  4. Check how much tread you have and how much you need to get through scrutineering.
  5. drop your pressures to about 30PSI cold & then take it easy for the first 2 laps...

    you will be amazed at how sticky they will be at track tempratures, just dont go crazy out there
