Other Dunlops from http://stores.racetireservice.com . They seem to have monopoly on Dunlop race tyres, no one else sells them

R11 $250/set Bridgestone vendor @ track w/racer discount.
R11 Ducati of Omaha

Mitas MC-50 $200/set eBay
Race Tire Service was dropped by Dunlop as their exclusive race tire vendor for the USA. There are now three or four regional vendors instead. Roadracingworld.com has some press releases talking about it.
The Dunlop and Pirelli slicks are going to be your best tires in dry conditions. Forget about thinking you need a 150 width tire. Think about it. Neither company thought that was necessary to go wider for getting the best performance out of the small bikes.

Yup, at our level, bigger differences in rider than tyres.

My main gripe with RTS was Alpha 13-SPs were available in 130 & 140mm rear sizes, but they refused to sell them. With 150mm rear, I could never break rear-end loose, even with whacking open full-throttle in middle of corners. It would just push front-end and tuck it.
