My tire looked pretty close to that when I did my first track day. I had too much air in the tire and my rebound was off. How much air are you running? Alot of the time there will be suspension guys at the track, did you check with them?

Tire pressure wrong or too much rebound dampening would be what I look at first if my tire looked like that. Running tire warmers? It's also incredibly hot out there now, so maybe not the right tire compound for the conditions.

Looks like low tire pressure. Should be around 28 hot off the track. I run 26 hot with slicks and 27 with Q2's.

That looks like cold tearing. The fact that you are past the wear bars tells me that it has been going for some time so any changes you made as of recently will be null.

What type of track are you on? Long and fast? Slow corners that you drive hard out of? What level of rider are you? are you using tire warmers?

Let me know, I may be able to help.

well the tire was brand new at the start of the day lol so i just ate the tire all day long and ya thats what i just posted above, the changes in 10 lap sessions for pressure wasnt showing any changes, and i figure it was cause the tire was dead


Track is a 3km short tighter track



can get upto about 245 kph on the front stretch, of 1, then running down towards 2 about 195... rest is a second or third gear track... so nothing crazy

I can run in Red with out an issue, and im always using warmers, and not just getting tire warmth, usually have rim warmth as well,

any help would be great, even if its just to get another opinion

Thanks

That's Cayuga (Toronto Motorsports Park).

Have you tried different tires?
