Here is my situation. I purchased this '01 Limited Edition R6 from a dude in Ottawa. He took the liberty of putting on every mod I could think of: Hindle exhaust, k&n filter, tinted wind screen, carbon fiber flush mounts, fender removal kit, Dyno Jet kit, you get the idea. The one mod he added was Perelli Race compound tires. I have never had a bike with race tires and I was wondering the precautions I need to take. They have plenty of grip left on them and they hook up great, but do I have to avoid all rain, cops, etc. Are these legal? What is the deal?
