Thanks I got same tires i changed them the first day i m surprise you get that much grip , but i only ride in the city and the white lines from the road painting make them very unstable for city riding i m looking for something different.
Thanks

I use my grom for commuting and racing. But I know what you mean. It gets a little slippery on the white markers. You know what!?! I low-sided at the track 2 times and I'm going to blame them on the tires :) Tires were warm too. From what I have read, these seem to be the best tire for the Grom at the moment. Dunlop is rumored to be coming out with their Sportmax Racing tire for 12" wheels soon. I"m going to swap 'em out when the time comes.

Running a taller profile on the front tire, and narrower tire in the rear, how did it affect your handling on the track? Did it turn in quicker or slower?

Bike handles great! I wanted the tallest tires I could fit so that I'd have more ground clearance. Don't know how they compare to the stock tires on the track because I pretty quickly took the stock rubber off.

Awesome, thanks.

Which Pro Tapers are you running on the track? How do you like them?
These are the bars I'm using. I recommend them to anyone with a Grom. Great width and height! In my opinion at least. :)

If you put the 120/80-12 on the front the tire will rub the fender at high speeds. I had to raise my fender up a little to keep it from rubbing. Just so you know!

I mount today the dunlop tires are so f... sick i rode them for 20 miles to warm them and by far perform much better than Michelin power pure. Amazing grip . Thats what i was looking for.
As well, thanks to Snakeibf he set up for me the race tech valves and springs , together with the rear Ohlins, bike rides and turns like a real bike.



Ready to look for big bore kit
