I am using the same hot pressures as you, 31f/30r. I didn't measure them cold, just set them to 30f/28r off the warmers and adjusted as necessary when i got off the track.Hey,we are using the same tire,what is the cold pressure you put on your BT003?Mine was 27F/25R cold,and the hot pressure will be 31F/30R after riding.
By the way,it seem like you still use the stock suspensions like me,would you please tell me your rider sag you are setting? thanks a lot!
They are awesome! Tons of grip.how are you guys liking the BT003? I've only used the BT002RS on the track and it has held up great for B+ group pace. I've had a guy tell me the bt003 shreds up super fast and advised against it, and told me to go for a Pirelli diablo .. I'm a fan of bridgestone, and i want to stick with a brand so I know the tires, and can set my suspension up for it. I'm definitely interested in the 003R
Superbike Supply (one of the site's sponsors) is where i got my set. The price was a bit better than anything else i was able to find onlineThanks for the feedback Vio, i'm definitely gonna give them a shot; where did you end up gettin 'em from, and whats a good price for a set? Thanks man
I wouldn't worry much about any chicken strips on the front tire with street riding (assuming you are talking about street riding). If you've measured sag on the front you can check your front preload with a tie wrap on one of the forks. You should be using approx. 3/4 of the travel on the front end, and adjust preload as necessary. With the rear you are gonna have to measure the sag to get the proper preload setting.So just so I get this straight, unused tire on the rear means you aren't powering out of the corners hard enough and unused tire on the front means you aren't entering the corner fast/hard enough??? Does that sound right?
I have about 1/4 - 1/2" on the rear I rarely use but have what looks like 1 - 1 1/2" on the front that I barely use even when I try. I do tend to hang off the bike alot but could it also be that there is not enough weight over the front and/or the preload is too high?
Thinking about dropping the front 5mm but then again, I plan on going to a 55 rear with the next tire change. Am I on the right track?
i got a little confused,how much you set your rider sag and free sag of the front fork?i will check my sags soon,and i really need those data as a reference.thanks!...
