Tires are fine, a little blue but fine. I would ride on them. Do you know the history? street only? Occasional track days? The previous owner rode the bike pretty well.
It either saw some time on the track OR some idiot decided to sand down the sides to look "cooler" and get rid of the chicken strips and show off that they get "low" and lean. Doesn't look dangerous at all but that's just my uninformed opinion from far away.What's going on guys!?
This is going to be my first full season of riding as I bought my bike in November and didn't get much riding in because of Chicago weather but now that the weather is getting nicer I wanna get everything ready and prepare the bike for some long trips. :devious When I bought the bike the guy said he put new tires on it and although they look like they're in good shape I am kind of worried about something. As you can see in the pictures on the side of the tires there is some torn like rubber and I'm wondering if I should be concerned about that and what does it mean that the tires look like that. I'd really appreciate nay input from you guys and whether I should have them replaced based on this. Thanks in advance!
BTW the tires are Pirelli Diablo Rosso II
I saw a thread... Might dig it up and bump it... It may have been satire... But it was there.What's with all the accusations of sanding? Do people really do that?
Lol it's serious business Preston. Quite a few wannabes do it to get rid of the chicken strips so they don't get teased by other idiots. Crazy tho that people actually take time to sand their tireWhat's with all the accusations of sanding? Do people really do that?

I'll see your archaic method and raise you 10x the efficiency with this up to date methodSquid way to get rid of chicken strips... haha
You think thats bad....I knew a guy who sanded off the outside of his shoe and he would tell everyone he gets so low it eats up his shoe. He also filed the pegs.lol
I can tell you something even more squidly than sanding your chicken strips... a guy I knew bought a suit and then scuffed up his knee pucks and elbow pucks AFTER doing his tire
oh and look its a gsxr, go figureSquid way to get rid of chicken strips... haha
Lol, I don't hate Gixxers but the picture of the guy using a sander is also on a Gixxer hahaoh and look its a gsxr, go figure
