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...

Unless it was same rider and same tires on the same day I wouldn't put much value in that data.

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...

I doubt you'd save much money compared to the one I made from hockey sticks since I pulled it out of a trash can ;)

Bottoming is usually referred to with respect to what happens internally with the fork.
The fork hitting the underside of the lower triple would be no bueno for sure.

This is dependent on the position of your forks in the triple clamps. It is not a good way to determine ho close you are to bottoming. A more accurate measurement would be to take the top off one...

Didn't have any issues with the supercorsas when I ran them.

First thing I'd double check is wheel alignment. I'm not small (195lb) and I haven't had any straight line issues. Only "weaving" I've...

Hmmm. I'll be heading down to Pittrace on Sunday to do a trackday with N2/Evolve GT. Too late to back out now. I'll post a report on how it went.

With A-13SP's front and rear, my rear ride height has been stock. I don't remember my front ride height off the top of my head, but I can measure it and let you know what it is if you're interested.

I'm not so sure you can attribute this issue strictly to the grip difference betwen a 150 and a 140 width tire. Have you been making ride height adjustments to compensate for any of this?

So you are saying that you have been sliding the front on corner exit? Because that's the only time that the balance scenario would possibly come in to play.

The higher octane is a waste of money. In fact, if you go too high on the octane you will slow down the fuel burn to a point that you actually will make less horsepower.
