Twinkle's new Boots

are making the bike handle(shall we say?) a little differant. especially in the front wheel department!

a bit vague compared to the Supercorsa's. i put the  016pro's on that i loved on the R1.

i'm figuering its just a case of reclimitizing to them?:wacko::upset:

Check the

pressures against the standard fitment tyres and the recommended pressures for these tyres. Might be that the OE tyre pressures are more suited as they're designed for the weight and suspension.



Perhaps.

Tyres.

Pop down to WH Smiths and buy yourself a flexible curve ruler. Mould to the tyre profile, draw the curve on a piece of paper along with date and mileage, and keep safely. Compare the profiles at beginning and end of tyre life. Also compare the profiles of different tyres. Nerdy but good!

just been out now

mixed roads(wet and dry), and with only 30 miles on them.

front tyre vagueness has gone (it was me) and no issues at all regarding grip. Fantastic!

lets see if i can push them as hard as i used to on the R1:biggrin::biggrin:
