    Tyres...

    Right now I'm using super corsars on my track bike sc1 on the front and sc2 on the rear.

    I go through a rear every two days and a front every 3-4, I'm ready to move to slicks.

    So I have no idea what to go for, I'm happy with the grip of the sc but would like a bit more life anyone got any recommendations?

    If you want tonnes of life you could try the Metzeler TD's, but for my money it's either;

    V02 Medium Front
    V02 3LC Rear

    D212 Slick Medium (2) Front
    D212 Slick Endurace Rear

    V02 soft rear for UK temperatures this year. There is no point paying for 3LC


    FWR can sort you out

    Dunlop KR 106/108 (local suppliers will give you compounds suggestions) if you manage well with suspension. They last for a long long time and they have very good grip. I am sure that Pirelli Superbike, Michelin Slick, Metzeler Slick, Bridgestone slick etc offer very good grip but I use Dunlop the last years and I am happy with them.

    They are very good tires but a) very expensive b) very sensitive to pressure/suspension settings c) have many compounds

    Re: Tires...

    This is going to be a hard one, do slicks tend to last a bit longer than road tires?
