Haven't run slicks yet, only DOTs, but wouldn't keeping heat in the tire be an issue if you are used to riding on a street tire? I have no idea of OPs speed, but I would think jumping from a street tire to a slick right away would leave a lot of room from the temp generated from the current speed, to the speed that needs to be carried to generate enough heat for a slick to not cold tear and wear poorly.

The sbk pro is a street tire compound molded into a slick. There is no issue running an intermediate pace on them with or without warmers.

I've turned lap times on power pures that are good enough to run in the race and expert group.

And FWIW, nobody who's fast has anything nice to say about the tires you run. The sidewalls blow. Front end feel is meteocre, etc.

DOT's are way stickier than the track day slicks. They make their traction and grip by offering a large contact patch. The compound is like a medium or maybe even bordering hard if that was an actual compound.

They squish and bend and flex MUCH more than a street tire. When you brake on them you feel em flatten out and bounce up. That's how they get hot. But the problem with them and no warmers is that they suck donkey dick until they are warm. If you're at a fast pace on them, your hot pressure is WAY too low when the tire is cold to allow the bike to feel decent or turn properly. When I say this I mean it's too low on air, and the front tire and bars turn WITH the tire into the turn and require constant input, etc.

And you'll cold tear em without warmers too. They say you don't NEED warmers for em cause they don't heat cycle horribly like other tires do, not cause the carcass is stiff enough to support the weight without the pressure.

I rode those tires all the way through intermediate, advanced and into the race group before they had little left to offer other than epically long darkies all over the track.

Re: Intermediate pace track tire

I've been very happy with my Pilot Power Pures... They even work pretty decent in the rain if you're careful with your right hand.



I run mid-I pace.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE
