NickIF cool. I'm looking to go to slicks for the increased tire life and ability to lean the bike over a bit more. That and I need an edge on grasshoppa

Could be.......Derek (Stickboy) and Lori (Honey). He races in WERA.....he was on a Hawk, but may have changed.

Good people to do business with. The generators he sells are a good buy also.

The tire will cost $180 and $7.50-ish to ship and will last 20% longer than a DOT race tire.

Plus they pay out and send you your certificate right away, like less than a week.

I got a fifth place and I didn't get any tire money? Oh, yeah, there was only 7 in the race and two crashed out! Hey, nobody needs to know that, right! Kimmy got 4th in that Supertwins race, I was trying not to roast my rain tires. It got dry about an hour before the race and I didn't feel like switching

09-07-2006 12:29 PM
G2G Hey Nick I have also run the stones on mine also. I like them because they are cheap than the Pirelli's. But the main thing is check the contingincy on what tires you want to run. If you tink you will finish towards the front you really need to keep an eye on it.

09-07-2006 12:18 PM
JonGu Hahaha I should, that would bring me up to 4 tire manufacturer changes this year on my SV, from Dunlops to Michelin to Pirelli and back to Dunlops again... oh yeah plus I'm running Bridgestones on my 636. Sad thing is I can't tell a difference between any one of them, they all feel the same to me until they go off and start sliding. I went to Michelin and Pirelli specifically because they pay to 5th

stop saying that. If you look at the big picture, as we all should since we call ourselves racers, we're all pretty slow. You should switch to dunlops and take advantage of my contingency checks. I'll give you the gook discount.

Grasshopper What is the real difference between a DOT race tire and a slick? I've come to believe that Michelin PR tires are essentially slicks with groves cut in them.

You think those slicks are going to make you faster Nick?

Chunk Nick, You should try dunlops. Why? Because I have $120 worth of contingency checks that I am not using since I've switched to bridgestones. It can be yours for a low introductory price of $80 which means that you will save $40 on top of the racer discount.

NickIF I guess you're right Fear not though I will be purchasing a CD as soon as he gets back to me.

Can anyone tell me the difference in slick brands and a good place to get them? I was a die hard pirelli fan, converted to michelins and now I guess I'm going back to the P's
09-07-2006 11:55 AM
TheGrouch Liberal? I thought Repulicans were tough on crime?

And come on...can anyone that's into trackdays be a true tree-hugger? All that wasted gas, rubber, dead cow skin, etc.

That's a sweet gif, BTW.
09-07-2006 11:44 AM
NickIF So go cry about it to him then I don't want to hear it, not in this thread at least. Have you filled out your application for the internet police? No where on the autobahnevents website can you purchase a CD with pictures on it. That is why I emailed him. You must be a libby because you're making me angry. Go hug a tree while I take the watermark out of my avatar for you

He does sell CDs. Wink has bought several at the track.

He'll also sell you the digitals after the fact.

Your response is essentially an admission of theft. You have not paid him, thus you don't own the rights.

Why am I pointing this out? As a photographer I know the amount of time and money that goes into shooting trackdays. Everyone here gets sympathetic when a guy's bike gets stolen, but no one says boo when copyrighted material shows up on this site or when avatars still have the photog's watermark.

Theft is theft.

NickIF where's the best (cheapest) place to find a set? I'm guessing I should go with the pirellis? I'm going to be running 636 forks next year anyways so all is good
09-07-2006 10:39 AM
Grover Yup, only class you can't run with slicks is supersport.

I'd run some track days and practice on them first. Changes quite a bit I've heard. LBK and G2G have raced on them, I never did (waste of cash for me).
09-07-2006 10:36 AM
NickIF awesome. The only class I wouldn't be able to race in is super stock correct?
09-07-2006 10:32 AM
G2G Yes they do and that is what i run. Matter of fact I have a set sitting right in front of me. I use to run Pirelli slicks right now on my KTM which is the same size of the SV tires I have dunlops.
09-07-2006 10:32 AM
NickIF sweet, I think I'm going to do it next season
09-07-2006 10:30 AM
JonGu They definately do, I don't run them but I know of at least one guy that runs Pirelli Dragon something slicks.
