Thanks for this info. I'll be heading out on the track first time since high siding last October. Been a few repairs physically and mechanically so I'll be a little subdued for the first few sessions.
Know how you feel, I had a bad high side too, it took me a few trackdays to feel natural on a bike again.

Enjoy your track time!!

Am I going to be getting any adverse handling issues with this combo?
Thanks in advance
If your running a supercorsa sc1 or 2 on the front I see no issuses the only difference to a slick is the tread. I regularly mix tyres dependant on conditions. For example at Thurxton last year I ran a Dunlop wet on the front and a pirelli slick rear during a race as it was wet in the corners and dry down the straights

silentservice703 Yes. This is not a good idea all around. If the cost of the front is keeping you from buying one, just imagine the cost of repair when the front washes out on you.

AusMV312 The front is still in good condition however you are suggesting that the superior traction from the rear is going to be pushing the front excessively?

Hawk Only that you will have less grip from the front tyre on the track and risk over heating it.

Given that this piece of rubber is all that is keeping the bike shiny side up, I would invest in a new tyre.
