    Track day Tyres

    Hi all
    just joined the forum, I've doe a number of track days on my 2016 model and are currently using bridgestone S21's which I find great, as I do use the bike on the road when the weather permits, however I feel I am starting to speed up a fair bit on the track I want to get another set of tyres for my next track day any suggestions, something a bit more track orientated?
    I don't have tyre warmers
    Cheers

    Would you mind heading to the Welcome section and posting a bit about yourself? We ask this of all new members. Great to have new folk intro themselves.

    For the tyres I think the choices are.
    Pirelli SC V3's
    Pirelli Corsa 2's
    Dunlop TT's
    Metzeler K3's

    The TT's would be my choice next but I have not used them.

    And fwiw the new Bridgestone S22 is supposed to be much faster than the S21.

    There's lots of choice and hardly a bad tyre out there.

    I can only comment on Michelin Power RS, I absolutely love them. However there are an awful lot of people on here with far more knowledge than me

    PS I'd booked Caldwell Park for Tuesday. I don't think I'll be travelling given the lousy weather , its a good 3 hours from me. I'm hoping for a part refund.

    From threaded I tried Pirelli Supercorsa SC and they were really good. Expensive tho.

    Murtanio uses Dunlop GP Pro D213 and he is super quick.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Am glad to hear youíre enjoying your RR on both road and track

    I have S22ís fitted currently and in my opinion they are comparable to the S21ís, slightly better in the wet but no better in the dry.
    As you would like something more track focussed and only ride on the road in the dry, I think you would be better served with one of the hypersport options, such as SuperCorsa SPís, Racetech RR K3ís, RS10ís etc.

    Enjoy the forum and I hope you have a great Summer ahead

    I shy'd away from suggesting D213's as I feel they are safer used with Warmers, particularly in cooler climates...
    I am going to try them, but I am not sure without warmers.

    Well, all tires are safer used with warmers. All depends on your initial pace out of the pit.

    I used S21's on my Tuono V4 1100 last year at an Oulton "road bike only" day - warmed up in a lap and good enough to run 1m 56s without any issues.(that pace would just about ok for the back of the fast group on a "normal" day)

    You can get them for £190 a pair which is a bit of a bargin imho.
