    I will adjust suspension as well, fingers crossed!

    My guess -; they look good. for what its worth.
    Perhaps geometry tear, from too little weight on the front.
    I was tempted to delete this post cos I dont have any experience with this just what I have heard.

    Christ! How complicated does he make that sound!
    I used Pirelli recommendations of 26psi rear & 30psi front cold, tyre warmers were used pre first session & went straight back on between sessions.
    I think suspension needs tweaking but also feel SC2 compound will work better for me.

    What I forgot to say was the grip levels on these tyres was absolutely brilliant, no slides, no moments, great track tyres!

    Even the multi million pound teams in GPs haven't a clue about tyres! :D

    Are all the competitors allowed to use their preferred tyres for the races?

    You can use any treaded tyre, no slicks allowed, so you can use touring tyres if you like .... I might suggest that to my mate DAVE :p

    TT100's Billy.
    That's what you need mate. You'll get the entire race season out of one set!

    Just don't let the other Bandit racers spot that you're using them. Or you'll loose the competitive advantage! :)

    DD - I'll use them under certain caveat,

    • You buy the TT100's :(
    • You come get me when I am upside down in the kitty litter :eek:
    • You fund and employ a mechanic to repair the bike :worried:
    • You pay the medical bills :cold_sweat:
    I'll think you'll find it cheaper to just send me a pair of Super Corsa's mate, so we'll agree on that yeah? :D:party:

    What has a Suzuki Bandit tyre wear got to do with the TRIUMPH FORUM?

    I
    It’s at the top of the ‘racing’ part of the Forum, this Forum has helped me a former Triumph rider to get going in racing, there is a lot of interest in the thread which is why I post, anyone who isn’t interested just skip & read something you are interested in...simples!

    Have not looked at Racing part of Forum but imagine it applies to Triumph Racing. "Former Triumph Rider" is the key word.
    If there is genuine interest, apart from 'Chatting' why not email or facebook each other. After all the subject is likely outside the majority of Triumph riders interests.

    As I said, don’t read if you’re not interested, but Super Corsa tyres also fitted to many of the Triumph range.
