GYTT + 500 mi. on an 031800r

Post  npirtle on Thu May 12, 2011 6:54 pm

I finnally did it. I went with a GYTT 205/60/16, after 500 mi. I must say I don't know why I waited so long! Tire went on with no mods what so ever. There is about .050 clearance on the helmet lock and almost .25 on the swing arm. I should have put more powder in the tire for balancing as I have some bounce at around 100 mph but I dont go there often anyway. I started at 40 psi then dropped it to 35 and liked that pressure better. It took a little while to get used to the counter steer but its not bad. the worst is on uneven pavement, Vader like ruts in the pavement, it wants to follow the ridges and you nned to be paying attention. Stll everyone who sees the tire looks at me kinda funny and says it will not corner well. They just need to follow me for a while.

Congrats, glad you are liking it! I did 34 psi in my GYTT on my 1800 S and I am loving it. I upped it to 35 and it increased that grab the rut feeling a little. At 34 there is almost none of that feeling.
