Careful enutz, if you feel the rear moving as you gas it in the corner you probably aren't being quite smooth enough on the throttle, or aren't standing the bike up as you apply the throttle. At that pace, on a 600, on those tires you really shouldn't be feeling any movement from the tires after 3 trackdays.
(Also what cold rear tire pressure are you running, if it's too high that might explain why you aren't using the edge of the tire and why it's not sticking as well).
i try to make a conscious effort to be smooth with the throttle and i have been told by the track coaches that i'm very smooth but who knows, you could right. it was in the afternoon, it was HOT, 98 degrees with a heat index of a hundred and something and i was exhausted. so i probably wasn't being as smooth with the throttle as i should be. the thing is, i only felt it break away from me once out of those 3 days of using them so i don't want to give anyone the impression that i was sliding out of control at almost every turn at the end of the day.
as far as tire pressure, i was running 32 up front and 30 rear which is what the dunlop rep at bhf last wednesday suggested. actually i think he suggested 32 for both front and rear but i decided to run it a little lower in the rear.
as for not using the edge of the tire, there was another person who did a review on these tires using the same bike and he said the same thing where he had about 2mm of tire left to go before he hit the edge. the sides of these tires are pretty steep for a street tire. here is the review with pictures and you will see what i'm talking about
Define moving around. Skipping and sliding sideways. The tire spinning and the bike coming around? The rear end squating but not breaking the rear tire loose.
Feel is great. But what are you feeling?
It's like, The rear end is spinning....
Did it squat first? Did it just spin right up. Was there to much throttle application, was there not enough swing arm angle. Lots of variables come into things. The track is the best place to view and correct these issues.
i guess the only way for me to describe it was that i felt it break away slightly outward as i was gassing it which most likely is me not being smooth with the throttle and body position more than the tires giving out. i also ride at the novice/intermediate level and i'm not as consistent as some of the faster I and A riders. that being said, they were very forgiving when i wasn't being as smooth as i should have been but did eventually break away at one point.
like i said above, i only really felt it once with these tires. with my other tires, i felt the rear spin right up every time i gassed it out of the carousel at gingerman. but that could have been that the profile of bt016 isn't as aggressive as the q2, my throttle control, and body positioning. it could have been a number of things. i'm not good enough or fast enough yet to be able to know enough to make that judgement yet.
