Stock tires OK for light track duty?
I have an SV650 mainly for track days, but I also recently got an 08 CBR1000RR with only 950 miles (only put 50 on it so far), and it has the stock Bridgestone BT-015's on it, barely broken in (huge chicken strips).
I want to do a track day or 2 on it, but not push it too hard and wad it up (that's what the SV650 is for). Could those mildly-used BT-105's do the job for a mild track day? I plan to erase the chix strips, but not push it very hard or get huge speed, just want to give it a few sessions, see which bike I like better on the track. I've heard great things on the BT-106's, but nothing on the OEM spec BT-015's. Soft enough? Quick enough warm up on a 60-65 degree track day? And again, for moderate use, not balls-out fastest lap.
