Re: Tire deal at Cycle Gear
Both the BT-014 and -021 ... $90 for a 120 front and $110 for a 180 rear.
I've never run Bridgestones but I am thinking about an -021 in the rear and the stickier -014 up front. Any opinions?
hear they are pretty good...in MotoGP anyways
JCR has BStones on his CBR...they were real sticky...and he claims they last quite a while too.

It could be any of a number of things. Warped brake rotors, worn/damaged bushings in either end, bubbled tire, etc... Unless you've got lots of time, and great mechanical skills, I'd take to a good shop. It's your life that's on the line.
The tire size is 150/90-16, usually "H" rated; Yamaha recommends the
Dunlop D404 or the Bridgestone G702. I've had tire life issues with the
Bridgestones and just installed Michelin Commanders front and rear -
they, and the Dunlop Elite 3's, came highly recommended by Venture
riders I've met in the Southwest. I don't have much mileage on the
Michelins, so I'm just passing along the results of my inquiries.

Any motorcycle oil will do. Castol or motul are good ones. Don't use oil for cars as the antiwear aditives will make your clutch slip. Synthetic oil is good. I use the motul ester 20w50 in my bike it run great and you only have to do one change at the start of the season. synthetic oil is usualy good for about 15000km unless you put more on than that.
Hope this helps.
It is safe to ride ans long as you do not go over the rated tire speed, for insatnce a S rated tire qill be safe at 220 miles per hour, so keep in mind the tire rating and the speed you may be travling at ok?
Bluing means the tires were properly brought up to temperature and run. Being street tires, they should be okay for a while but since you had track days, you may have shortened their lives considerably. Did you use tire warmers? Also, Michelins are great and progressive when new, but when they get old, they are not predictable at the limit. They'll grip and then let go without the same level of feedback you'll get from Dunlops or Bridgestones, in my experience. YMMV.
I race on Michelin Power Races now but still prefer Dunlops for better feedback.
