Hotfoot Posted February 5, 2013 Report Share Posted February 5, 2013 Hi, I have a new bike, it is one of those 450 Super Single conversions. It has Pirelli slicks on it now, 120/70/17 front and 160/55/17 rear. I'd like to put Dunlops on it but I'm not sure which model to use and which are available for a 160 rear. I LOVE the way the Q2s handle, but I will be racing and need to run tire warmers, and I'm not sure the Q2s do well with warmers, especially if the warmers aren't temperature adjustable - mine get really hot. I prefer a more rounded profile, intead of a V shape, and I don't particularly like really stiff carcass tires. (See why I like the Q2 so much?) The bike is relatively low horsepower - 40 or so, I think. Which Dunlop would be the best to suit my preferences? I am in the US, will be racing it with WERA, and my classes do allow slicks. First race will be this weekend at Vegas and the weather is looking cool, 40-55 F. Thanks in advance for the advice! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
