lloydbock Posted May 24, 2005 Report Share Posted May 24, 2005 Can anyone help me with a problem with the tire tearing problems I am riding a 2003 R1 with Ohlins internals in the front and rear this includes uprated springs as well as oil everything. The problem that I am having is that I have just changed tires from the old Pilot race tire to the new Power race and the front tire is tearing horribly after only 5 to 7 laps it also keeps on wanting to tuck at the apex of the turn. The geometry on the bike is still standard but the suspension was absolutely perfect for the old tires but no matter what we try we cant sort this problem out even if I ran a soft front tire on the pilots it never tore and the wear and grip and feedback was brilliant now running the new one it doesnt matter what compound we try it does the same. At the moment the tire pressure on the front is 2.1 bar. Please any help would be great. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
