Question about 2001 Suzuki FXR 150
If you are considering racing in F4 or Buckets on your motoFXR you have a choice of running street tyres (BT39 are great) in the production class or you can fit slicks and run in the Super Bucket class (these are South Island Classes) if you fit slicks on stock FXR rims you need to run tubes inside , the slicks are 95/70-17 fronts and 115/70-17 Rears, same as RS125 GP bikes use, this is not a perfect solution as the rims are slightly narrow and the contact patch on the ground is not optimum. To get a really nice profile on the tyres you can fit some other rims, my bike has RG200 rims and the tyres fit great, GSXR250 rims are good also they have a 2.5” front and 3.0” rear, there is a wee bit of machining to be done at each end as the front bearings don’t fit the fxr axle and the rear disk has to be moved inwards aprox 10mm. Usually the slicks we run on F4 or Buckets are used RS125 tyres which are relatively cheap but sometimes hard to find. A 15hp bike doesn’t exactly eat tyres like a 50hp bike so they last for ages, if they are a bit hard you can borrow a grooving tool and cut some groves in the tyre, this makes them heat up more, also it makes you feel better about riding with slicks in the rain
