F3 - new tyres make a massive difference

I guess like new guitar strings- you don't realise how borked the old tyres are till you put a new set on.

Just put a set of Pirrelli Rosso iii on. Bike now turns in more predictably and holds a steady line. Scrubbed in for 40miles....them knee down in the English Autumn. Happy daze.

Take a chance while you still got the choice.

Pyramids. Can't be beaten. They just have extra mojo and they last for ages. I like 9-42s on my Les Paul.

NEW Tires, oh Yeah

I ran last weekend 2 track days with NEW Bridgestone RS10's on the F3, wow what a difference coming from the Rosso Corsa's. Great grip and front end feel at a awesome price!

GHS super steels 009. For long lasting grip

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

My tyres definitely 'cured' themselves after riding in 39 degree heat - gonna get them changed only done 3k .

Was thinking of changing from the stock pirellis

The Rosso III feel v different to the Corsas.
However there is a downside- the new tyres have a new profile giving a bigger footprint at lean angles and also allowing greater lean angles. How problem? If you dont use the 50+ degree of lean available (not a cat in hells chance with me onboard!) - the chicken strips are HUGE.

My RVF has tyres blistered to the edge - I look like a hardass rider. Same knee-down lean angle on the F3
gives 1.5" chicken strips.

Oh dear - bad enough when people think the change in compound is where the chicken strips start -


I've only managed to start to rub the top of the lettering off ;p
