adifferentname Posted July 30, 2004 Report Share Posted July 30, 2004 Hi there, in my short racing career a few years ago I crashed twice in the dry both times on cold tires and both times I spun the rear right around so it didn't highside it just spun right out because I don't drop the throttle when it lets go. I was always comfortable when the tires were heated up to have the rear loose probably from my dirt riding experience and I quite enjoy it like that anyway, and also when using tire warmers I felt %100 confident with the rear out of shape on the first lap. On both crashes the rear let go very fast. So if I am on cold tires do I need to push the bike up harder with the outside peg as I am getting on the gas or have I missed something?. I know cold tires are becoming less relevant with tire warmers these days but I am wondering if the problem will come back if my rear tire goes off (when I get back into racing) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
