Does anyone have experience with running these on their RR? I have an 04' and would love to run these. Before taking the plunge, I would like to get some feedback from those that have run them. Setup / stick / tire life etc........

How much of a setup change would need to be made form the 190/55 & 120/70's I run now...........

I run A group track day stuff..........former expert racer....:th_salute:

those tires will grow on you so you will have to change up your geometry. if you have r&t forks on the front it will be pretty simple. if not, find another tire to run. you need to be able to move the front end up.

if you have the $$$ to spend go with the n-tecs. they do not grow.

When you say "grow" does that mean increase in height when the tire is spinning fast or what? I've never heard the term.

When you say that they grow do you mean that its a temporary increase in size due to heat and rotation that goes back to normal when they cool, or is it a permanent situation where they get larger with each heat cycle? Also, I would assume that you are talking about an increase in diameter, not in width, right?

Edit: you beat me to it RaisedHaze

Thanks for the advice Lexus - they are the N-tec series.......:thumbsup:

Stock revalved front forks and an Elka triple rear with height adjustablilty.........What numbers would I shoot for with these Ntecs slicks on. I really have no idea if I have enough room with the stock forks to take care of the changes.......?

the non-ntec tires did grow under acceleration. it was due to the heat produced. once the tire cooled down they went back to their std size. they dont grow but by a few mm's, but its enough to give you some terrible headshake in the upper gears, if the bike isnt set up right.

Best tires I have used by far. Might jack up the back a little, but not that much because the front tire is taller also. I had no problem with the front pushing or trying to tuck without raising the front. Turn in, grip, and life are awsome. awsome life is compared to other tires, they dont last forever. Rear starts getting close to the swingarm, my tire warmer would rub on the swingarm but would still go on.
