  1. For Sale: Used DOT N-Tec Dunlop D211GP Tyres

    These tyres are (Road Legal) race tyres, Also arguably the best tyre ever made by Dunlop. If you know someone who knows anything about tyres, then they would know how good these are. Unfortunately, for me and others, you cannot buy these anymore in Australia. When you could though you’d be looking around $800 a set. I've got one set of newies left before I have to ship more in from O/S. (Not looking forward to that exercise) :(

    If you look at the pics suplied you'll see that they have plenty of tread left for another TD or two (depending how hard you punt around a track) or if you’re a road rider these will give up a fair few thousand K’s.

    So how good are these tyres you ask? Well the steep sidewall coupled with low tyre pressures allows for much more grip whilst at full lean. Even cold, you’ll find your hand sticking to the surface the tyres.

    For fitment see the chart below. However, know that I run these tyres on my trackbike which is an 09 R6. P.S as for the tyre balling up, you'll find the rubber smoothens back up immediately as you hit the road.

    Tec Info: N-Tec construction (New Technology) is Dunlop's very best construction road racing tire. The D211GP rear tire features a nylon carcass overlaid with two nylon breaker belts and a continuously wound, aramid-fiber tread belt for cooler-running, excellent straight-line stability and virtually no circumferential tire growth. Dunlop's N-Tec steel bead and its high-modulus bead apex combine to offer improved feel for the rider as the tire nears its cornering limit, producing the "predictability" that has become a signature characteristic of Dunlop road racing tires.
    The multi-compound D211GP rear tread is an ingenious design that results in the first production racing tire to utilize seven tread zones: a high-modulus traction compound in the center and two lateral grip sections on each side, both separated by a triangular support region-all extruded as a one-piece unit. Sharing the spotlight with the D211GP rear is the D211GP front tire. Dunlop's multi-compound front utilizes radial construction and features two nylon carcass plies and two aramid cut-breaker carcass belts. A thin, high-modulus carcass compound is layered under these belts to minimize and distribute the forces transmitted from the aramid belts to the carcass plies under hard braking. The D211GP front tire also combines Dunlop's N-Tec steel bead and unique bead apex design to further stabilize handling at full lean.

  6. Don't like dunlops Loz? Have you tried the ntec?

    I don't think you'd say that if you've punting around the track on them. Best tyre I've ever used hands down and at the race level that are about 7-8 seconds faster in capable hands vs the competition. (not that I'd ever know personally) sloooow as!
