This yet again. New tries will change the dynamic of the bike so much you will think it's a different machine all together. I'd Worry about a flash after tires.

Ditch em fast bro. I have a decent hook on tires if you have anything in particular in mind.

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

Maybe my throttle delivery was to blame. The throttle is a lil on the twitchy side in 1st.. but there was a car in front of me so I know I didn't give it very much gas. I shoulda checked for oil or something too.. I could have got a very close look

+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...

Doesn't also vary from dealer to dealer what tires you get? My r6 came with q2, but I also asked for them.
