I think it's still good, but I'm a poor bastard. I have to save money where I can, if you have the $$$ it's worth it for the peice of mind not to go head first into a tire wall. My $0.02

Don't know alot about race tires but I would stay on the safe side and junk 'em. Not only that but bad karma to ride 'em again anyway.

I'd sell them to some n00b as takeoffs...


Ok, I wouldn't.

Unless I didn't know them...



No, I think it's best you got rid of them.

oil

WE race through oil all the time cause someone blew up a motor or crashed. When your tire gets a little oil on it just ride it gingerly for a lap and you are ready to go. Its like riding on a new set of slicks with the silicone coating on it.

PS buy a billet cover for any sportbike. Its sheap insurance. Some of the older bikes would bend crankshafts when they were lowsided. Generators and stators aren't cheap anymore either.

Just my 2 cents.

Depending on how new the tire is... I'd keep it. Run a few laps and burn off the oil. You'll be fine.

There are a couple of reasons I would get rid of them. One you already have some track time on them 2 they have been sitting all winter in a cold garage and 3 there is oil on them. Yes you can burn the oil off in a lap or two but I would think that having them sit the whole winter that have maybe soaked up the oil I dunno. You don't need that in the back of your mind while you are on the track. Start the year of right with some new tires it might save you alot of money in the long run.

I've raced with oil on the tires, but then again, it was put on during pit out (I practice with ducatis, buells, 2-smokes, and 15 year old FZRs..one of them is BOUND to be dumping oil). I took it easy for a couple laps, but when I came in, oil was still on the tires. I think I managed to find another puddle out there.

Then again, as Steve said, it was burned off almost immediately and didn't have three months to sit on it. Did you clean the tire off in the pits or when you got home?

I think the main effect of getting and leaving oil on the tires would be to soften the rubber, if anything. Might just want to prod them a bit and see if the oily spots are noticeably different than the not-oily spots. If so, I'd toss them on general principle.
