Install of new tires info

Ok so im installing a set of q3's onto my g4. So far ive mounted the rear. Just need to balance which is all good. Cleaned rims down etc. just a query. Do you wipe the tires fown with anything or just put them on. Scrub them in and go hell for leather? There is a little bit of sticker residue on the tire also. Any extra info is appreciated.
Cheers

Don't put any chemicals on them. The sticker residue will come off in the first 2 miles. Just ride them, but take it easy until the tires get up to temp and gradually increase the lean angles after they do.

Love me some Q3s!

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

That would really depend on how much or if any lube was on the sidewall and or the running surface of the tyre.

I never touch the tires, no need, but kinda clean the wheels before tech guy gets to them, yet I leave the old weights on cause they work for next tire.

about psi. On past bikes I was ALWAYS watching tire pressure as whatever I was on insisted, but with g4 psi never caused any concerns in twists.

Well...so my new old timer tire tech guy I found upon moving here kept advising the corsas. I finally bought a few and he had a list of reasons to WATCH psi on the corsas.

What I found out is that running the rear corsa around 30 plus a couple numbers did TWO things in the twists that I love and ALSO transferred to whatever non-corsa tire I'm running on the back.

I suspect the lower psi caused LESS wheel spin in the twists WHICH TRIPLED the mileage on the FRONT tire. So the rear corsa wore out around 16-1800 miles but the front lasted close to 5,000 miles. When I changed it out the middle had plenty of tread.

Same thing going on with the q3 and now I have a q2 on back. I have 1600 on the rear q2 and like 3k on front and still have plenty on front and maybe 400 miles left on the back.

Given the above, really depends upon your riding style and riding level and your asphalt conditions.

I found it interesting and am loving the less front change outs.

New Tires

Once new tires go through a heat cycle they are fine. Just for the first 100
miles or so take it easy.
