If racing takes all of your money you're doing it wrong. I've won two championships without breaking the bank. But since I'm not into spending all of my money on racing I primarily race small bikes. ...

Definitely the best bang for the buck. Only reason I have the A-13's is because I bought 2 sets last year and we didn't need a better tire to be competitive. If I keep my bike I'll need to go with a...

I do have to say that I have a 250 with a 300 motor and I used the 250 wheels for the slicks and the 250 front wheel with a 300 rear with the A-13's

You're talking a 115 width rear with the Moto3...

If you want rotating weight savings, look at the weight of the tires you are using. Since the distance of the tire from the center of rotation is much greater than the distance of the sprockets from...

The durability is exactly I didn't go with the 415 chain. Our team runs 3 hour endurance races and a chain failure would screw us for sure in a race. I question the value for sprint racing even more...

Depends on the wheel/tire combo. With stock size wheels & Moto3 size slicks it's about 290lb. With the Ninja 300 rear and Alpha 13's it's about 296lb. Could easily shed 3 or 4 more pounds by putting...

Personally I don't see anything wrong with your tires. The rubber is not "tearing" at all. What you see me is simply small rolls of melted rubber. The surface of the rubber beneath that is actually...

Yes they do: Pirelli Supercorsas. Still the best tire that I've used personally. Haven't tried the Q3+ or the R11.

I used some older but new Dunlop slicks and they worked pretty well when I used...

OK then, Here's a fact: I beat a Formula 450 bike, an Aprilia SXV450, an FZR400, and a TZ250 in the last race I was in on my 300 Ninja, yet I got beat by a guy on an R3. That says exactly zero about...

Let me put it another way:
It is obvious that the 300 has the potential to be faster than the 250 and the 400 to be faster than the 300.
The data above is useless in determining how they really...

It's been many years since I've been to RA. I can't say how it will be on a 300, but you better be ready to draft anything that moves ;)

Also, since the corners are mostly far apart you have a lot...
