Re: Slicks

I have no personal experience but a lot of guys run the 190/55 instead of the 190/50 which is stock. The tire is slightly taller and more triangular that improves turn in. Only usually used on the track.

I've also run 195/70 Dunlop slicks which worked really well but I have never been able to find them again.

I raced a gsxr750 and never used anything but a 180, you will love it.

Re: Slicks

The 180 will let you lean quicker but you sacrifice a little stability because less rubber gets into contact with the tar than the 190. I think only the experienced racers will really be able to tell the difference
