1090RR Tyre life

Good news
Have purchased an unregistered MY 2014 1090RR that I’ll take delivery of in February next year



Bad news – reason for purchasing 1090 is that some f****r stole my 1078.
Welcome to London!


Royally pissed off after just getting the bike to as I wanted it.
The Police closed the case after 1 day . Their email stating ‘after an exhaustive search we’re closing the case’
Why not just say ‘we’ve no staff and can’t be bothered’ – at least that is more palatable

Anyway moving forward I wonder if somebody could give some advice on tyres
The tyres are new Pirelli Supercorsa diablo’s.
I’m told that as the bike has sat in a climate controlled shop for 3½ years there is no issue with using them
Does this sound OK? -any thoughts appreciated

Alan

First of all, im sorry to hear some sh1thead stole your bike. People like that should be hanged in public, A legit warning sign not to F around and steal. (Maybe a bit to much....but then again, I hate those people with a passion)

From my understanding a tyre should be replaced at 4 years max. The natural oils in the rubber dry out no matter what.

You're buying a used bike so do a tyre swap, Oil change heck fluid change, NEVER trust someone by their word who is trying to sell something.

At the risk of saying "Ohboy, another tire thread!", I'll jump in here and say: Gosh, I heard it was five years......

I have had tires on bikes longer than three years and they have worked just fine. Would I do an aggressive track day, no.

There is a manufacturers date stamp on your tires. See what it is. Most tires sit in storage somewhere, climate controlled or not, before they are ever installed on a vehicle.

If you are an aggressive street rider, then do the ol' thumbnail test and see how pliable the rubber is. I would certainly street ride on three year old tires without worry. I would also track ride on the same tires if they were pliable.

I have been known to let other ride on the track on a 748 with 6 year old tires that had gone through several track day heat cycles and THAT ended poorly.

Thanks for the advice guys. I'll check the date and give the tyres a pliability check too.

Those tires will be just fine, as will the fluids most likely. Look at the brake fluid. If it is dark in color have it changed.

Have a NEW battery installed. I guarantee you the original battery has not been maintained during all this time and is sulfated. Even if it takes a charge it will not hold it for long.

Sorry to hear about the theft...assholes... Glad to hear you are getting a new bike (non-current year model is irrelevant).

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Thanks Ed
The dealer is changing all fluids apparently so not a bad thing
Absolutley new Yuasa battery - my experience of BS Batteries on the TV has taught me that

Police here now have the OK to knock joyriders off bikes with their squad car -some quite good video clips surfacing of some successes

Hi. There was member's MV stolen from an underground (supposedly secured) carpark in London recently. Don't think it was yours - might have been a Brutale. Point is I thought it was only scooters and crap stuff that was going from London. I don't travel there by bike, but it's a wakeup call nonetheless.

I have Super Corsas on one of my bikes and rate them as a terrific tire. As for advice, I can go any further than that offered above.

Thanks Nigel
Unfortunately mine must be another Brutale theft. Same situation by the sounds of it. Secure underground garage with CCTV all over the shop
Was having the footage compiled for the Police (was away at EICMA I think when the theft happened) but they're obviously not that bothered or busy elsewhere.
The 1078 didn't have a tracker (the other two do) as i never rode it without it coming back to base. Stupidly thinking it was secure. The 1090 will have one
Superbikes are a big target . You read they're stolen to order. Biketrac report how often they'll be called out due to a run on Ducati Diavel's or such like
Panigales are a popular choice .
