Can I call you FZR 750RR instead? It's a bit easier to type. As you'll very well know pads/tyres are as individualistic as sexual fetishes, for the record mine are Koala bears and lesbian dwarfs.

Tyres: I've been a Pirelli man since '94, original Dragons through to Diablo in various guises, I even bought some SC0's once ;) the old Victory handles peachy on snot sticky boots and one has enough left for a spanking ride home back to hell. Shame the old girl's undercarriage gets a pasting when I'm feeling frisky but like most things in life it's a trade off.

Pads: I always, always just use good sintered pads, tried 'em all and tbh the difference is as boring to explain as it is indifferent. Make sure you bleed the old girl to save embarrasing air expulsion and a bit of sponge when you need to grab her by the horns. Likewise it's worth getting your lazy arse off internet forums and getting a well wielded toothbrush into her dusty pistons to ensure full power. Beware the glazed discs through over exuberance of WD40 usage, if I had a pound for every time I've done it I'd have £6.50.

Glad to be of assistance brother, love you xxx

190psi?

What are you running brother? Earth mover tyres? Space shuttle wheels? Do your tyres actually touch the track or do you float like a butterfly around it?
