To think I was missing the abilty to lean and steer my bike all this time. The rear will never see another 200 tire. NEVER



Thank's GreenMamba These Perilli's are awesome.



If ya read this GreenMamba or anybody else with prior use of Race Perilli's Dragon Grand Corsia's, What's the tread life compared too?



I put over 400 mile's on em last weekend going to Indy. All highway<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/frown.gif ALT=":("> but they don't look hurt one bit. Really tame ride. We rode like a bunch of Buell's over there<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

If Jessie Jame's had a ZX12R I'd ride with him.

mwrzx12 you will not believe the difference. I did not think a tire could mean so much on lean angle. But it make's ya feel like Eric Bostrom

WD, reddawg, wait till you try the 180/55.......makes the 190 feel like a 200.



200 is good for only 1 thing......looking at it while standing still. (all you posers can have the 200's <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> )

You go 180, you will never go back. Why Kawasaki didn't put the 180 on this bike to begin with, I'll never figure out.



And you'd be hard pressed to sight it as a 180 vs. 200. It looks great on the bike.



And a little tip for those of you who don't put on that many miles and want the ultimate corner tires. Four little words:



Pilot M2 Race Green.

Well, you'll all be happy to know that there is at least one dummy who put another 200 on his bike. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/embarassed.gif ALT=":eek:">

(but I'm doing all I can to kill it as quickly as possible)

jiggsy, you'd be amazed at how quickly my 200 met its ultimate demise once I had the M2's sitting in the garage!!!

Sounds like a plan, but I got a Michelin Pilot on there, I'll eat it up a little more first. But I saved those instructions and will get to them at some point, and foward to you as requested. Only we'll pretend I'm just warming up before the big drag race! <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

Venom, Yep I got the 190. And the way I hear talk on here about the 180. I could'nt imagine it turning better than it does now.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"> I will try the 180 just because I need too.



I figured I'd take baby step's. 200 to 190 190 to 180. Give me time to get up to speed.



Before I put this 190 on I felt like I was hustling the bike in the corner's pretty good. Now I'm diving into the corner's and it's holding and staying on line and able to switch line's so easy. There's no hustling it, It just does it with far less effort.



Every turn is so much easyer than before, Which kinda scare's me. The bike just seem's so much more stable mid corner and on exit's. It's taken the pucker factor out of entering turn's.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">



Blitz how many mile's ya getting outta the race tire's?

If Jessie Jame's had a ZX12R I'd ride with him.

They are still young pups, only got about 500 miles on them - but so far so good. The still are showing the casting nipples all over.



I was gonna "baby step" it and go 190 first, then 180. Mamba and Tenn12 talked me into just going straight to the 180. Very, very good advice.

jiggsy, I can have you ready for the 180 in 10 minutes. Heres what you do:



1) Get your video camera (this is important).

2) Lower the pressure on the Dunslop 200 to 20 lbs.

3) Pour 1/2 cup of ATF in a neat, circular fashion on your favorite piece of tarmac.

4) Point the video camera at the bike, from 11' 3" away.

5) Roll the back tire into the ATF fluid.

6) Start the bike (engine should be warm already at this point. If not go back to step #2).

7) Put feet on the ground, butt resting on saddle.

<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/glasses.gif ALT="8)"> Pull front brake (*** this is really, really important)

9) Shift into second gear, accelerate to 3k rpm and slowly release the clutch

10) Accelerate to 6k rpm and rapidly shift into 3rd gear.

11) Accelerate to 8k rpm

12) Hold throttle position at 8k rpm for no more than 60 seconds.

13) Send me a copy of the video!!!
