Considering the new dunlop 209s, the blurb says they warm up that quick you don't need tyre warmers, they are getting rave reviews.

Used Dunlop GP Racers at Portimao and they were superb

They were on an R6 with a 190 55 rear

Tried it on the pirelli Sc's with a 180 55

and it felt better on the dunlops but I think it had a lot to do with the 190 55 rear - felt amazing to be honest - turned & steered so well..........:-)

I wany a 190 55 on my 998S trackbike now but I've been told they don't fit....:-(

I know we've been here before..(sorry)...but is there a SAFE way to use them without a new swing arm...

as mentioned, i used to run a 190 on the 998 and it was fine. Biggest issue is to get a heat guard to protect tyre warmer form the pipes as it pushes it very close and will melt it if you put them on as soon as you come in.
