Just got a Shinko R011 fitted, am looking forward to seeing how it goes, Craig White said it would go nicely on my RF. I forgot that it had a 180 instead of a 170 on there, might explain how it was a bit bargey in the corners. Here's hoping it makes an inprovement.

Thanks Smitty, I'll save that in my favorites....

I'm a Bridgy fan and always have been. I've tried others, but I keep coming back to the Bridgy's...
I have the 003's on the Track bike, absolutely love them, heat up quick, great grip and great wear for me (1.55 @ EC)
For the road, I reckon the 016's, replacement for the 010-012-014-015.....

I wouldn't touch Shinko if they were free :shock: wouldn't listen to what CW recommends either

Possibly look at the BTR10..... they replace the 003's...... super grippy but not much chop in the wet as per the 003.
For the road & all round riding 016 or the 2CT are great

Nice one mate, so you reckon not to use the 003's on the road at all then ? In that case I will stick to the 016's then. Current quotes in WA have advised a setback of about $240 and $340 respectively fitted for front and rear, does that sound about right ? I have looked online at Jake Wilson in the states they ship for free at a cost of $106 and $166 which saves me over $300 here in Aus ! More beer ! Anyone over there doing this ??

I wouldn't use 003 on the road cause they are not flash in the wet, but that's me..

I got my last two sets from here.....
