Bridgestone Battlax T30

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Does anyone on here have any experience with running these tyres?

I have a set on my R1 which came with the bike. I understand that they're technically a "sport touring" tyre, but from what I read Ron Haslam's race school bikes run them. Although I plan to buy something grippier next time, I'm interested to hear if anyone else has used them?

If you do track days, imho get them replaced; the current YZF-R1 doesnt have race grade traction control as an electronic safety aid + extremely lousy mass centralization by todays standards.

The S20's were already extremely uninspiring on my friends bike. Only the R10's are usable on the track imho. Or just grab the Dunlop Q3's .

When you say "race grade" traction control, do you mean something that uses more than wheel speed sensors like the s1000rr?

The TC on the R1 has already stepped in a few times on mine and I haven't been unhappy with its behaviour, but maybe for a real fast rider it would be different.
