scrub in new tyres= easy

popped down to my mates to have my pilot race tyres fitted today. when i asked about scrubbing in ?. p.o.p! to take the slippy shiney stuff off,just spray on brake/clutch cleaner on the tyre & rub with a rag.. i found it worked a treat.

I've always been told it takes more than that. For the first few miles there are still "mould" release agents coming out of the surface of the rubber.

I know people who have used emery cloth, a paddock stand and had the bike in gear while they emery cloth the tyre. Still slippy until it's done some miles on the road.

it just takes off the slippy shinny stuff away so 3 laps on a track should be ok or a few road miles will do.

At your speed make that a full session.

Beware of lean angle, don't get tootling around and then suddenly go for it

Just build up steadily with each lap.
