Re: OEM tires really that shiddy?/1st time down
I am only one to disagree with everyone on here. Stock tires are plenty capable of doing higher intermediate pace....when warmed up (and they warmed up in couple laps in the TX summers).
On the street, just getting out of your driveway, they were definitely cold. Any cold tire could slip given a bit more throttle than needed.
All the BS about Michelin and Pirelli tires I see on this thread...it is what it is..... BS. Those tires will slip from under you too when cold.
As Melkster said...rider is to blame. Speed doesn't matter as much as how much throttle was applied. Even super sticky warmed up slicks will slip given enough throttle
I'd say keep the stockers, and learn to be smooth with the throttle. That way, when you move up in speeds and get better tires, you'll be fast on it already
+1 on the fact that stockers arent too bad, sure i have nothing else to compare them too, but i could give someone a good run for their money at the local twisties, (lets not get into track since i never tracked)
definitely rider error or asphalt had an oil patch, sand, gravel, whatnot, at 15 mph doing a uturn you can just tip it over...
